2 East South Street
Galesburg, IL 61401
Throughout the year the campus community is encouraged to monitor local radio/television stations to maintain current on rapidly changing weather conditions during the approach of severe weather. The National Weather Service (NWS)/NOAA early warning radio system may also be helpful to monitor weather watches and warnings within the Knox County area.
Additionally, Campus Safety staff and duty officers, members of the Student Life and Student Development offices, as well as various faculty and staff members within various building locations have been provided access to a "WeatherCall" warning system for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. The WeatherCall System has been designed to issue a cellular, text and email notification and a live link to NWS Service radar to persons within those groups.
The WeatherCall system sends the notification whenever a weather warning box/polygon has been issued by the NWS and when some portion of the warning box has touched within a 10-mile circle of Knox College; the center of the circle has been established as "Old Main."
The WeatherCall system has added one additional warning opportunity for community members in addition to the existing warning options available: local media, Public Address (PA) announcement, and the storm warning siren (located on the south side of the campus). The WeatherCall system has provided timely weather information to persons who can, as the conditions deem necessary, provide up to date information regarding approaching storms and to aid/encourage persons seeking shelters.
