Severe Weather | Tornado 

You are responsible for finding shelter in the event of a tornado. If you are on the main campus during a normal work day, the best places to seek shelter are in Areas of Severe Weather Refuge. If there is no time to go safely to an Area of Severe Weather Refuge, go to the lowest floor of the building. 


The buildings below have basements. Note that some of these basements are quite small.
