In case of Severe Weather
Prepare in advance for severe weather
Since the City does not officially supply public storm shelters, we would like to offer these tips in case of severe weather:
Work with your friends and family to establish a “storm network”
Make an emergency plan now. Where do you go? What do you need?
Go to a pre-designated shelter area such as a safe room, basement, storm cellar, or the lowest building level.
If there is no basement, go to the center of an interior room on the lowest level (closet, interior hallway) away from corners, windows, doors, and outside walls.
Put as many walls as possible between you and the outside.
Get under a sturdy table and use your arms to protect your head and neck.
Stay away from and do not open windows
Use a mattress if possible to shield yourself from flying debris
If in a vehicle, trailer or mobile home get out immediately and go to the lowest floor of a sturdy, nearby building. Mobile homes provide little protection from tornadoes.
If outside with no shelter lie flat in a nearby ditch or depression and cover your head with your hands. Be aware of the potential for flooding.
Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You are safer in a low, flat location.
Never try to outrun a tornado in urban or congested area in a car or truck. Instead, leave the vehicle immediately for a safe shelter.
Watch out for flying debris. Flying debris from tornadoes cause the most fatalities and injuries.
Are you Prepared for Storm Season?
It is important for you and your family to have a plan in place in the event of a significant weather event. To gather information, please view or print the Emergency Preparedness brochure below:
