National Weather Service issues Ithaca tornado watch

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for Ithaca and surrounding areas until 7 p.m. today.

According to the NWS, a tornado watch means current weather conditions could cause the development of severe thunderstorms producing tornadoes in the area.

Ithaca College issued a statement on Intercom advising students to be prepared if a tornado warning is issued.

If outside:

  • Try to seek shelter indoors.
  •  If you cannot get indoors, try to get to a protected or safe area away from buildings, windows and glass, telephone or light poles or any place where there could be falling debris. A low area such as a ditch or ravine or a depression works well.
  • Lie face down and cover your head and face.
  • Avoid any downed power lines.
