Status: Business as Usual (monitoring TD Fiona, TS Gaston, et al)
Message: Webber International University is monitoring Tropical Depression Fiona and Tropical Storm Gaston, as well as other tropical weather in the Atlantic. At this time, no available forecast predicts the paths of these storms coming anywhere near us.
We are n the peak of hurricane season. While we are well inland and serve as the evacuation destination for numerous other communities, we are nevertheless not immune from severe weather. Therefore, we constantly monitor all available information, and maintain “shelter in place” readiness. Were severe weather (or other emergency) to threaten, official communications would be posted here.
A reminder that Webber’s mass alert siren is not sounded for watches or warnings… except for the weekly 2pm Wednesday 2 wail test, it is activated ONLY in the event of true emergency, and should this siren sound everyone should seek shelter immediately.
As a further reminder, to subscribe to Webber’s free emergency text notification system, simply text the word Webber to 888777 or visit http://www.Nixle.com (our zip code is 33827).
