Tornado Preparedness

Tornado Preparedness

In this part of the country, spring is almost synonomous with severe weather.

To prepare us for the season, the Brookhaven College Police Department refreshes our memories of the differences between tornado watches and warnings and what to do (and not do) when severe weather strikes.


Tornado Watch
A tornado watch is issued to alert the public to the possibility of a tornado developing in the area. At this point, a tornado has not been seen but the conditions are favorable for a tornado to occur at any moment.

What should we do?

What should we "watch" for during a tornado watch?

Tornado Warning
A tornado warning is issued when a tornado has been sighted or has been picked up on radar in your area. Take shelter immediately in a safe, sturdy structure.

What should we do?

What should we avoid?
