MTSU will conduct monthly tornado siren test on main campus, at Miller complex June 12

A U.S. flag stands in the rubble of a neighborhood struck by a deadly EF5 tornado that ravaged Moore, Oklahoma, and nearby areas May 20, 2013, killing 24 people and injuring 212 others. The tornado, which stayed on the ground for 37 minutes over a 17-mile path that crossed through a heavily populated area of the town, was part of a larger weather system that produced several other tornadoes across the Great Plains over the previous two days, including five that struck portions of Central Oklahoma the day before.

MTSU plans to test its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex this Tuesday, June 12, at 12:20 p.m.

This will be a brief, routine test of the system, and no safety actions will be required.

If harsh weather is in the area around the time of the scheduled testing, the test will be canceled.

MTSU notifies the campus and surrounding neighborhoods before these tests each month. Tests are conducted on alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays to minimize distractions for the campus and for neighbors.

Members of the campus community can prepare for emergency weather situations anytime by checking MTSU’s list of recommended shelter locations at http://tinyurl.com/MTSUTornadoShelters.
