Kansas Severe Weather Awareness Week is March 6-10

Submitted by Division of Communications and Marketing

The annual statewide test of the tornado warning system will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 7, as part of Kansas Severe Weather Awareness Week, March 6-10. If there is threatening weather that day, the test will be postponed until Thursday, March 9. Use this as a reminder to locate tornado shelters on campus and review severe weather safety plans.

Kansas State University administrators encourage students, employees and parents to use weather apps and local news to stay informed of Kansas' frequently changing and potentially severe weather such as tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail and flash flooding.

If impending danger threatens one of the university's campuses, the K-State police or communications team will use K-State Alerts, the university's emergency notification system, to send notifications through email, websites, social media and text messages to those who have signed up. 

The K-State mobile app is another method for notification and can be downloaded from Apple's App Store or Google Play.

The safety of all K-Staters is the university's first priority. Please stay informed and safe this spring.
