Emergency Overview | Emergency Numbers | Alert Sign-Up | Severe Weather


Severe weather refers to any dangerous meteorological phenomena with the potential to cause damage, serious social disruption, or loss of human life.  The NWS issues warnings for heavy snow, freezing rain, high winds, flash flooding, river flooding, thunderstorms, tornadoes, tropical storms, and hurricanes. In a broad sense, these are all defined as severe weather as any of them can and do pose a threat to life and property.

If severe weather threatens:

  • Follow Department/University instructions
  • Tune into local Tulsa radio and television stations for weather updates
  • Check local media and OSU-CHS communication sources for return to work status

OSU Center for Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine and Physicians Clinics rarely close.  In the event of inclement weather, our students, faculty and staff will be contacted by email about any needed schedule changes.  Additionally, closing information will be made available to local media (KOTV, KTUL, KJRH or Fox 23), and through the outgoing message on the main campus phone number, (918) 582-1972.  Clinic patients with scheduled appointments will be contacted by phone.
