Severe Winds

  • Windstorms severe enough to cause damage may occur at infrequent intervals and may be accompanied by heavy rains.
  • At the time of the warning of impending severe winds, property and equipment not properly anchored should be moved inside a building or tied down.
  • Close and secure all windows and doors.
  • The best protection is refuge in a permanent building. Evacuation is not prudent.
  • Immediately after cessation of severe winds, campuses will be inspected for damage.
