The following message was sent to the university community on Friday, September 7:
This is a reminder that we are entering the most active period of the hurricane season.
At the moment, there are two tropical depressions in the eastern Atlantic. These systems do not currently pose a threat to our area. However, they do remind us that this weekend is a good time to review hurricane plans and complete necessary preparations.
Getting ready for a storm may be a new experience for many members of our university community. If you are new to South Florida, you will find many resources online. We urge you to review them to make sure you are ready.
