Sheltering Locations

It is important to choose a proper sheltering location for your safety. The Sheltering Locations Checklist (PDF) is provided in order to assist individuals in identifying suitable areas for sheltering during a severe weather event such as severe thunderstorms or tornado's.

** This checklist does not guarantee that injury or loss of life will not occur. Severe Thunderstorms and Tornado's often occur with little or no warning and produce violent and unpredictable consequences.
