Tornado / Severe Weather Guidelines
The Department of Residence Services, along with the entire university community, has developed notification and emergency procedures in the event of severe weather or tornadoes. Residents should familiarize themselves with the following information.
For up-to-date weather information, turn your radio to: Station WNIR - 100.1 FM or WKSU - 89.7 FM.
- Students should always use the stairways rather than the elevators; in the event of a power failure, elevators could be stuck between floors.
- If there is a strong enough wind to break the glass in the stairwells, students should return to the closest corridor (inside walls, away from glass) and protect themselves from flying debris.
