Cornell University

Are you StormReady?

July 21, 2023

Cornell University was recently re-certified as a StormReady university, a designation it has held since 2015 because of weather-related policies, procedures and weather preparedness resources. Cornell also maintains a strong working relationship with the National Weather Service Office in Binghamton.

The Division of Public Safety monitors weather conditions and forecasts and may issue CornellALERT emergency messages during extremely dangerous weather, such as a tornado, or when dangerous weather occurs during major university events. CornellALERT messages are not sent every time the National Weather Service issues a weather alert.

The National Weather Service regularly issues weather alerts for severe thunderstorms, flash flooding, winter storms, air quality and other hazardous weather. To receive those alerts, sign up for New York Alert messages and subscribe to weather alerts for your county. Sign up for Tompkins County SIREN to receive additional Ithaca and Tompkins County emergency messages.
