Hi,

Perhaps you meant your question for a particular school? If the school is located in the United States, you may be able to locate its contact information through SchoolFinder: http://www.education.com/schoolfinder/

If you were instead looking for general safety tips for your family, you might review the articles in this Disaster Preparedness info center on Education.com: http://www.education.com/topic/disaster-preparedness/

Either before or after the storm, you could also turn this event into a learning opportunity by doing some weather-related activities or science projects with your children:

I hope you find these resources helpful, and that your family stays safe, healthy and dry through the storm.

Blogtalkradio (for OC Family) recently had a discussion on this very subject!  One topic that was mentioned was the need for college bound students to know of emergency plans when/if they are far from home.  Is there a friend of the family or relative nearby where they will be relocating for school?  Does the university have emergency evacuation plans that they have been articulated to the students and parents?  Does your child have emergency cash, water, batteries, and other essentials that have been listed by a fellow poster?  

We often think of helping those close to us.  However, we need to be cognizant of making our older teens and young adults children capable of weathering emergencies, including storm related.

Thanks for asking.
