Warren County Tornado Shelters

Warren County has eight storm shelters throughout its park system. Built to withstand winds of 200+mph, these facilities are open to the public and staffed by Warren County Parks for use only when tornado watch and/or warning alerts are issued by the National Weather Service (not severe thunderstorm alerts). All tornado shelters are stocked with water, weather radio, flashlight, and other various emergency items. All facilities have changing tables, and some have restrooms. Pets are permitted if they are leashed or caged. Look for the tornado signs to direct you to the shelters when you enter the parks


May I take my pet to a Tornado Shelter?

It has been the policy of WCPRD, under emergency situations such as tornado watches/warnings, to permit caged or leashed pets only in the shelters, space permitting. All pets must be under the control of their handlers at all times, or they will be removed from the shelters.
