Tornados and tweets: Students react to weather warnings on social media


This story will continue to be updated as events unfold.

A tornado warning ended the first day of classes a little early.

One tornado touched down in Kokomo, and funnel clouds were reported in Brownsburg and near Eagle Creek Park.

The first warning expired at 4:45, but a new warning was put in place less than 15 minutes later.

A tornado watch remains in place for Marion County until 9 p.m. A watch is less severe and occurs over a broader area, while a warning means a tornado has been sighted or indicated on the radar, according to the National Weather Service.

Via DawgAlerts from the Butler University Police Department, the campus community was told to avoid windows and seek shelter inside.

Students and staff found shelter in the basements of buildings all over campus.

Presumably bored, bulldogs took to Twitter. Check out some of the best posts below.
