Outdoor sirens are activated by Athens-Clarke County only when a tornado warning has been issued for the area (or part of schedule drill/test). A warning is issued when a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar in the area. You should immediately seek shelter when you hear outdoor weather sirens in Athens. Sirens are located on the Chemistry Building, near Family Housing, on the East Campus Parking Deck and at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.
Review the UGA Tornado Safety Tips to learn the actions to take if you are in a building, outdoors, in a vehicle, or on a campus bus when the sirens are activated.
