When the weather gets dangerous, do you know what to do? All members of the Missouri S&T community should be familiar the proper procedures for seeking shelter during severe weather activity.
During an actual tornado:
A tornado warning means that a tornado has been sighted or indicated by radar. The Rolla Police Department will activate the city’s outdoor sirens. When warning sirens sound:
- Seek shelter, preferably in a designated area. Move to an interior hallway, under a stairwell or a room with no windows.
- Stay away from outside walls, exterior doors and glass windows or partitions. Do not open windows.
- Take cover under heavy furniture. Cover your head.
- Check local radio and television stations concerning the tornado warning.
- There is no all-clear message sounded through the siren system. However, Missouri S&T does send out all-clear messages through its mass notification system.
