Severe Weather

Violent weather, by nature, is unpredictable, however, the approach of such weather is often known in advance.  Good communication and quick response throughout the UNCP community will minimize the possible damage caused by violent weather (via voice mail, e-mail, building announcements, etc.)

Quick Response

Remain Calm and Act – DON’T REACT!
Seek refuge away from windows.
Call 911 if assistance is necessary.
Evacuate if an alarm sounds.

University Closing and Cancellations
