Feedback Question for Glencoe Hills

We've had a lot of thunderstorms and tornado watches/warnings. I know that I have a hard time hearing the sirens most of the time but if I do happen to hear the sirens, I live on the 3rd floor and my apt has tons of windows- is there an actual approved shelter for when the sirens go off?

Thank you for asking. Like any home, you will try and find the lowest area with no windows is the best place to be during a storm. The laundry area is probably the best area during this time, just stay away from the windows. If, however, you wish to remain in your apartment, then an inside bathroom will be your best area. Most libraries and the Red Cross have an actual storm shelter if you wish to go to one of those as well. Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it.

Here is a link to Washtenaw County's Emergency Prepardness Website. There is a ton of very helpful information and advice about what to do if there is an emergency such as a tornado.

There is also a really cool way to sign up to get text message updates for tornado and storm warnings via Nixle. The link is on the right hand side of the web page.

I hope this information is also helpful!
