Severe Weather Information
Michigan’s changing seasons bring the potential for severe weather. Spring, summer, and fall all have the potential for severe storms and tornados. This is a good time to remind everyone to become familiar with the various shelter locations within each campus building. These shelter locations are posted in each classroom, office, and other public rooms throughout the various campus buildings.
The Campus Safety Department monitors the weather via the National Weather Service radio and will communicate any need for action as well as disseminate additional information as needed. If severe weather occurs, an announcement will be made over the public address system. Follow the sheltering instructions which are posted by the doorway in each classroom. If you are in the hallway, go to a location that is clear of windows, outside entrances, and take cover.
Clinton Township officials activate an early warning siren system to warn of an impending tornado or storm with anticipated or actual winds of 70 M.P.H. or more. Activation will also occur upon receipt of information from a credible source (sworn police officer, fire department, Sky warn personnel, etc.) that an extreme weather condition exists.
