Severe Storm Safety Information

Severe Storm Safety Information

Follow these emergency procedures in the event of a tornado warning or severe storm warning. (Please familiarize yourself with the storm shelters located in academic buildings and residence halls before an emergency).

  • In general, go to the lowest level of a building, away from windows and into an interior room or hallway.
  • If you are outdoors, go indoors to the lowest level of a building.
  • If you are outdoors and unable to seek shelter, lie flat in a ditch or low spot and cover your head with your hands.
  • Remain in the storm shelter and monitor a weather radio or cell phone until the storm warning has expired.
  • If you are injured or need help, call Public Safety at (402) 280-2911 for emergency assistance.
