Our pool closes during lightning and thunder. In the instance of visible cloud to ground lightning, or radar indicated lightning within 6-8 miles of the facility the Aquatic Center will stay CLOSED until 30 minutes after the last lightning is seen by qualified staff.
If lightning occurs during an outdoor program or event - activities will be suspended for 30 minutes. Activities may resume when no lightning has been viewed for 30 minutes. Staff will use their discression if program or event will need to be cancelled due to time or an extended period of severe weather.
In the instance of a Tornado Warning being issued, or the Tornado sirens sounding, the YMCA facility tornado shelters are the locker room areas. If sirens are sounding everyone in the YMCA facilty will be sent to the locker rooms for the duration of the warning and severe weather event.
