This announcement was emailed to students, faculty and staff on the evening of April 15 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:
The University Police Department issued an All Clear announcement at 5:45 p.m. today, April 15, after issuing an earlier severe weather announcement. It was issued through the University’s Wake Alert emergency notification system.
The announcement read, in part: “The situation is all clear. Resume normal activities.”
The University recommends that students, faculty and staff continue to monitor weather information tonight as weather forecasts call for the possibility of continued unstable weather.
A tornado watch remains in effect until 11 p.m. for the Winston-Salem area. A tornado watch means tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area.
Information about today’s weather, including current forecasts, is widely available on local TV stations, such as WXII, WGHP, WFMY and Spectrum’s News 14. Information is also easily accessed from other news organizations, such as The Weather Channel.
In the event of a weather emergency tonight, the University would make announcements using the Wake Alert emergency notification system.
