||Upon such notification
immediately move to the lowest interior floors of
your building, into an enclosed hallway or a room
without windows. As you leave your room, close and
lock your room door behind you.
||STAY AWAY FROM
WINDOWS, DOORS, AND OUTSIDE WALLS. PROTECT YOUR
HEAD. Be sure to warn others of these precautions.
Please note that glass may shatter during the high
winds of a tornado, and glass as well as other loose
debris such as tree limbs, trashcans, etc., can
move through open spaces so please be sure to stay
in an enclosed area. (If you can see outside, you
are not in a safe place).
||Clear stairwells as
quickly as possible to avoid wind tunnel effects.
||Do not evacuate the
building unless a fire ensues, or if the building
structure is unsafe.
||Do not evacuate into
the underground tunnels. These areas are prone to
flooding and have high voltage lines.
||After the storm has
passed, evaluate the situation and if emergency
help is necessary, contact Campus Police at (757)
||If you are outside
in your vehicle and you observe a tornado approaching,
do not remain in your vehicle. If there is a sturdy
structure nearby, go to the lowest level of that
structure to obtain protection. If you are out in
the open lay in as low an area as possible. Be sure
and move as far away from your vehicle as possible
to avoid the possibility of being struck by it.
