Severe Weather Information
During the fall, as storm fronts come through or if a hurricane penetrates far enough north from the Gulf of Mexico, we need to be aware of tornadoes. If the National Weather Service issues a Tornado Watch, it means that conditions are right for a tornado. If the National Weather Service issues a Tornado Warning, it means that a tornado or funnel cloud has been spotted. If you are on campus under a Tornado Warning for Hinds County, seek refuge in the following locations.
Administration Building: Accounting vault
Dean Center: Racquetball court
Student Center: Men’s/Ladies bathroom or conference room
Biblical Studies: Men’s bathroom/kitchen area or the faculty lounge
Chapel: Hallway restrooms
MFTC: Computer room
Library: Computer room or back classroom
Please make sure that these rooms are unlocked and have flashlights stored in them. If you have a cell phone or radio, you might want to make it available.
