Minnesota Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 21-25. This year’s focus is “What if…?” MSUM Public Safety will be supporting this statewide effort to educate the public by assisting Minnesota Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the National Weather Service in reaching out to the public on a different topic each day of this week.

MSUM Public Safety encourages the MSUM community to think about “What if….” scenarios this week and what you would do if confronted with a severe weather emergency. Today’s highlighted topic is “Alerts and Warning.”
