During a tornado, seek shelter on the lowest level possible. If warranted, consider crouching near the floor and seeking additional shelter under a sturdy desk or table, or cover your head with your hands.
Remember, always use common sense. There are exceptions to all guidance and prescribed directions.
Watch: Conditions are favorable for the development of severe weather. Closely monitor the situation in the event advisories or warnings are issued.
Warning: Severe weather has actually been observed. Listen closely for instructions provided by weather radios/emergency officials.
Chemical, Biological or Radiological
A place of shelter is an area inside a building that offers occupants protection during an accident or intentional release of a chemical, biological or radiological agent.
Note: Many toxic chemicals have a vapor density greater than that of air, and will seek lowest ground. In the case of a shelter in place due to a chemical spill, follow instructions provided by emergency personnel.
