FIU monitors multiple weather systems

August 21, 2020 at 9:01am

FIU is monitoring multiple weather systems in the tropics. Currently, Tropical Storm Laura is forecast to come near South Florida early next week, right as FIU begins Fall 2020.

This is a good time to make sure you and your family have several days’ worth of supplies and medicines. Please monitor local media and pay attention to updates from the National Hurricane Center.

Please note that FIU has a communication protocol to keep the community informed about university operations during emergencies, including hurricanes. We expect university operations will continue as scheduled and will keep you updated should anything change. Please look for emails, follow FIU on FacebookTwitter and Instagram and, check FIU News and monitor local media for updates.

Hurricane preparation may be a new experience for many members of our university community. For tips on what to do, please visit the FIU Department of Emergency Management website or Miami-Dade County’s Hurricane Guide.

Please make good use of this time to prepare, take responsibility and do anything you can to assist others in our community who might need help.

The storm must not take our attention away from the things that we must all do to stop the spread of COVID-19: Wear your face covering, keep physical distance and wash your hands frequently with soap and water.

Thank you and stay safe.
