Severe Weather Communications
When the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning, Ball State will post pertinent information on www.bsu.edu and send a text message to subscribers of the university’s emergency text messaging system. Continue to monitor the weather via radio or television until the tornado warning has been lifted for your area. The university sends text alerts for tornado warnings only. To receive notifications about other types of weather watches, warnings, and advisories, you may want to explore free alert services such as those offered by www.weatherchannel.com and www.emergencyemail.org.
