Severe Weather Emergency Guide
Tornado warnings are issued by the National Weather Service (NWS). A tornado warning means an actual tornado and/or a very severe thunderstorm has been identified in the area by spotters and/or radar. Outdoor warning will be given through the Emergency Warning System.
What to Do if There’s a Tornado Warning:
- If in the warning area, seek shelter immediately.
- Basements, interior hallways on the lower floors, windowless rooms, and small interior rooms on the lower floors offer the best shelter.
- If in a vehicle, get out and seek shelter in a sturdy building. If a building is not available, a depression such as a ditch or ravine offers some protection.
- For emergency response call 651-962-5555.
