    2013 Goshen Rally - Storm Shelters at Venue

    With all the wild midwest weather lately, will we get info on tornado warning sirens, shelters, and when they test them? A test happened when we were at Gillette Wyo., and nobody was sure if it was a test or the real thing (except the weather then didn't seem threatening).

    I have an app that alerts me, called imap weather radio. I can select "areas to watch" and it follows me to alert me wherever I am.

    That being said, knowing where a storm shelter would be to house all 200+ rig's attendees would be good to know!

    In our area (Texas), weather sirens are tested on the first Wednesday of the month, as long as the weather is clear.

    Red Cross also has one called.... Tornado. It will monitor your location and alert you to any watches and warnings... which we just WON'T have. Fortunately I've not found out how it works yet...

    My Droid phone alerted me to a tornado warning (here in MI on Tuesday this week) - really weird - blasted like a siren three times - I figured that was the issue - there was a cloud that was spiraling just west of us. Not sure if this was Weatherbug app....

    That's what Joe has too - and it's waterproof too.........

    He calls my smart phone a "stupid" phone except when I use the GPS, make bank transactions, etc.

    Re: 2013 Goshen Rally - Storm Shelters at Venue

    There are 3 storm shelters at this venue.

    ECCC BUILDING
    In our main rally hall, the ECCC building, there is a lower level meeting room that is below ground. It's on the west end of the building. It can be accessed from the outside (unlocked door on west end) and from the inside during the day (via the History Room - LTA presentations room).

    BUILDING A
    As you go south from the NW camping section, there is a line of buildings in a north-south orientation. At the far south end is a very large metal building referred to as Building A. At the southwest corner of Building A is a bathhouse. The bathhouse of constructed of concrete block and is designated as a storm shelter.

    FAMILY HOME ARTS BUILDING
    Near the center of the venue, just south of the rally hall (ECCC) on Maple Street is a building referred to as Family Home Arts. At the front of this building is a bathhouse. The bathhouse is constructed of concrete block and is designated as a storm shelter.

    MAP
    Below is a map of the layout of the venue. I have heavily annotated the map to show the locations of the 3 designated storm shelters. I have also noted GATE 1, the gate we are to enter the venue through. A copy of this map will be included in the rally packets.

    Jim:
    Thanks so much for helping this West Coaster feel more secure in the midwest during the stormy time of year.
