When you think of tornadoes, do you think they mainly only occur in the mid-west? Virginia has a long history of tornado activity–most recently last week when multiple tornadoes touched down in Richmond and several other Virginia areas. Several homes and business received significant damage and one fatality occurred. Tornadoes are not to be taken lightly!
Seconds count during tornadoes, so make sure you plan ahead. Have supplies in your home. Practice your plan with your family. You should never question what to do when a tornado warning occurs–you should KNOW what to do because you prepared ahead. The video in this blog post highlights important tips to be prepared.
If a tornado warning occurs while at NOVA, please follow the procedures outlined in the College Emergency Action Plan.
