At FIU, we are monitoring Tropical Storm Elsa, the fifth named storm of the 2021 hurricane season. South Florida is currently in the storm’s five-day forecast cone, but it is still too early to predict impacts to the region.
We ask that you monitor local media and pay attention to updates from the National Hurricane Center throughout the next few days.
As a precaution, the Curative COVID-19 testing stations on campus will be closed on Monday, July 5.
Please note that FIU has a communication protocol to keep the community informed about university operations during emergencies, including storms. Please look for emails, follow FIU on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and, check FIU News and monitor local media for updates.
Storm 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.
