Emergency Information





Severe weather is again predicted for today, which may include heavy rains, flooding, strong winds, hail, and tornado watches and warnings. 

We are encouraging each department to review the attached document from the UHV Business Continuity Plan, paying special attention to pages 21-25 regarding tornadoes.  Review your departmental plans for relocating to the safest, strongest areas within the building.

If at all possible, assign someone within your department to monitor the weather at www.weather.gov or by listening to local radio.

Marketing & Communications and UHV Security are in coordination and will send out PIER alerts whenever a tornado warning has been issued.  Please read these warnings closely, as they often include specific geographic information regarding the projected path/area most in danger.  As we saw late yesterday afternoon, a tornado warning was issued for the entire county, but the danger area path was several miles south of the city of Victoria.

...Severe Thunderstorm Watch in Effect until 7 PM CDT for Northwest Brush Country...

...Enhanced Risk for Severe Storms across All of South Texas this Afternoon & Evening...

Severe storms are beginning to develop along the I-35 corridor between Laredo and Pearsall.  Damaging winds up to 65 mph are the primary threat, however large hail and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.  These storms were moving east-northeast at 30 mph and will impact LaSalle County through 2:45 PM.  Expect these storms to increase in coverage as they move slowly east during the afternoon.  These storms are expected to evolve into a squall line late this afternoon and evening as they approach the coast. Strong damaging winds and hail are the primary concerns, however an isolated tornado or two are still possible, especially with any storms that form ahead of the line.  Due to the slow storm motions, expect very heavy rain and a potential for flash flooding as well.
