Dangerous weather can include thunderstorms, lightning, tornadoes and winter storms. Stay alert to weather conditions and seek shelter if threatening weather approaches.
Tornado warnings are issued by the National Weather Service when a tornado is approaching the area. Campus warning sirens will sound a tone and a voice warning that a tornado is approaching and people should take shelter immediately. CU Safe Alerts will be sent to campus email addresses and to cell phones of people who signed up for that service.
You should tune to local television or radio stations for the latest information about approaching severe weather.
A winter storm in Upstate South Carolina can last for several days and disrupt travel, utilities and other services.
Plan for the worst and have adequate clothing, food and water ready before it is needed.
Driving in winter weather is particularly treacherous in the Upstate where there is little snow-removal equipment available. Stay off the roads as much as possible.
