Tornado Watch until 4 PM

November 17, 2015

The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for West University Place until 4:00 pm today. This means that the conditions are favorable for tornadoes.

Residents should take steps this evening to prepare for this type of weather. Make sure you have a way to be informed of severe weather. This includes having a NOAA Weather Radio and making sure your mobile phone is charged and can receive Wireless Emergency Alerts.

Be ready to take shelter if a Tornado WARNING is issued for your area. The best place to shelter from a tornado is an interior room on the lowest floor possible.

Be ready for delays during Tuesday morning’s commute. Plan extra time, as rainfall may make some access roads impassable.

Never drive into areas of high water. If you can’t see the street below, the water is too high for your vehicle.

Be sure to follow local weather broadcasts for the latest information. In addition, stay up to date with the National Weather Service’s website and find local rain and stream flood gauge information at
