Severe Weather

While there are many types of severe weather categories, there are two (2) types of unusual weather conditions which may occur and for which extraordinary precaution should be taken:

  • Severe thunderstorm Watches and Warnings
  • Tornado Warnings

Severe Thunderstorms

The Management Office keeps a weather radio onsite, in the event any watches or warnings are issued. We will do our best to advise tenants of impending inclement weather events; however, we recommend each office have a weather radio, and follow office specific severe weather guidelines.

Tornado Warnings

A tornado warning is an emergent alert issued by the National Weather Service when a tornado has been detected by radar, or confirmed by trained spotters.

Public warning will come over the radio, TV or the Municipal Defense sirens. Should a severe storm or tornado occur, the following guidelines should be observed:

  • Move away from the exterior of the Building to a corridor or elevator lobby.
  • As you move, try to close the doors of rooms which have windows. Also, be sure the door to your suite is closed tightly, but not locked.
  • Go to the center corridor and protect yourself by either putting your head closely to your lap or by kneeling to protect your head.
  • Stairwells are safe. If crowded, move down to a lower level for shelter. DO NOT USE THE ELEVATORS.
  • DO NOT go to the first floor lobby or outside Building.
  • Keep your radio or television set tuned to a local station for information.
  • Do not use the telephone to get information or advice.
  • KEEP CALM. If you are trapped in an outside office, seek protection under a desk.

Once the weather has subsided, report any damage or storm related leaks to the Management Office, 303-292-4500.
