UD has a campus alert system, which is used to provide announcements & instructions in the event of an emergency. Be sure to complete/update your emergency contact information at this link to ensure you receive the alerts via voicemail & text.
We are in Dubuque County. There is a map of Iowa counties next to the weather radio at circulation in case you need it.
Tornadoes are possible. Remain alert for approaching storms. Watch the sky and stay tuned to the weather radio for information.
A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. Take shelter immediately, taking patrons to the lower level. Our policy is that patrons evacuate to the lower level if there is a tornado warning; please encourage patrons to do so. However, we cannot force anyone to follow us; if they refuse, leave them there.
Near the lockers, there is an emergency kit with flashlights, first-aid kits, etc. There is a weather radio plugged in, in that area.
