Severe Weather and Natural Disasters
The U.S. Weather Service reports the movement of severe weather that may present a threat to metropolitan area. Tenants have the choice of evacuating or remaining in the building during a severe weather alert.

Tenants should maintain an inventory of first aid and emergency supplies to be used during severe weather.
Notify the Building Management Office of all leaks, fires, and structural or other damage during or after the storm.
