The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Homeland Security Bureau has activated the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and is monitoring conditions alongside public health, safety, and service agencies.

The Office of Public Health and Safety (OPHS) reminds residents of the following safety tips:

  • Know the signs of a tornado including a rotating, funnel-shaped cloud; an approaching cloud of debris; or a loud roar—similar to a freight train.
  • If outdoors, try to get to a low, flat location. Do not try to outrun a tornado in a vehicle or take shelter under an overpass or bridge.
  • If indoors, go to a safe room, basement, or storm cellar. If you are in a building with no basement, then get to a small interior room on the lowest level. Stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls.
  • Use your arms to protect your head and neck.
  • Residents are encouraged to check on vulnerable neighbors, friends, and family.
