Please remain weather aware. Severe weather is forecasted for early Sunday morning. Tornados and damaging straight-line winds are the main concern at this time. Early morning storms are particularly dangerous, as people tend to be asleep.

Be sure to utilize various methods of notifications such as JSU Alert, a weather radio, or an emergency alert app. JSU Alert may utilize all methods, depending on the severity of the weather. Those in residence halls or academic buildings should go to the lowest level away from doors/windows and in an interior room or hallway. Continue to monitor your local media sources for updates.
