IU Southeast Alert: Campus Status Normal


Tornadoes and severe weather can occur any time during the year but are more prevalent during the spring months. The approach of severe weather may be announced by the Civil Defense Emergency siren, radio and television bulletins, or weather radio. A TORNADO WATCH means tornado conditions exist in the area, and there is a possibility that one may develop. A TORNADO WARNING means a tornado or funnel cloud has been sighted in the area, and residents should take cover immediately.

In case of an approaching tornado or severe storm requiring shelter, residents should observe the following procedures:

  1. Move to the lowest floor which can be reached before high winds or a tornado strike.
  2. Move to an interior room such as a bathroom on the lowest level of the building.
  3. Stay away from windows, doors, and large open spaces. Do not wait in the Great Room.
  4. If outdoors, move away from the tornado’s path at a right angle or, if there is not time to escape, lie flat in the nearest depression, such as a ditch or ravine.
  5. If available, listen to a weather radio for weather alerts. Never pull the fire alarm for notification of a tornado or severe weather alerts.

The safest place during a tornado is the bathroom of first floor apartments. Residents living on the first floor are encouraged to allow second floor residents into these safe places during a weather emergency. Other safe places include the two public restrooms located on the ground floor of each lodge.

Other types of severe weather to be aware of include severe thunderstorms which can produce heavy rains, high winds, hail, and severe lightning. During severe weather, the University may also make announcements over the fire enunciator located in each room with specific instructions if time permits.
