Severe Weather Awareness Week
As part of a coordinated effort with the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness, the state will participate in a statewide tornado drill and test its Emergency Alert System at 9:50 a.m. March 28. During this time, Ohio counties will sound their outdoor warning sirens.
Although Miami does not participate in the statewide drill, area businesses, households and schools are encouraged to practice their tornado drills and emergency plans.
Be aware of Miami’s Emergency Preparedness procedures for severe weather:
• If a tornado or severe thunderstorm poses an imminent threat to one of Miami's campuses, an emergency text message and e-mail alert will be issued.
• Campus closures will be communicated through messages posted to the Miami University website and the e-mail and cell phone text message system.
Be sure to subscribe to Miami's emergency text messaging service and keep your registered device turned on and close by if severe weather is expected.
