The University Police Department issued an All Clear announcement at 5:45 p.m. today, April 15, after issuing an earlier severe weather announcement. It was issued through the University’s Wake Alert emergency notification system.
The announcement read, in part: “The situation is all clear. Resume normal activities.”
The University recommends that students, faculty and staff continue to monitor weather information tonight as weather forecasts call for the possibility of continued unstable weather.
A tornado watch remains in effect until 11 p.m. for the Winston-Salem area. A tornado watch means tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area.
Information about today’s weather, including current forecasts, is widely available on local TV stations, such as WXII, WGHP, WFMY and Spectrum’s News 14. Information is also easily accessed from other news organizations, such as The Weather Channel.
In the event of a weather emergency tonight, the University would make announcements using the Wake Alertemergency notification system.

To contact the Office of Family Engagement, please visit our contact page.
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
