Dear FIU family,

At FIU, we continue to monitor the storm system that is currently bringing significant rain and flooding across South Florida. Our area remains under a tropical storm warning and a flood watch.

The system brought heavy rain and flooding to South Florida overnight, and more heavy rain is expected in eastern areas of the region throughout the next several hours. 

University operations at MMC, the Engineering Center and the I-75 campus will proceed as scheduled today. We ask students, faculty and staff who live in areas with significant rain or flooding and cannot safely make it to campus today to communicate with your professor or supervisor.

At BBC, the Glenn Hubert Library, the Wolfe University Center and the Wellness and Recreation Center will be closed today due to flooding on campus. In addition, there is extensive flooding on Northeast 151 Street. Students, faculty and staff should avoid traveling on this road. No classes or events will be held at BBC today.

Also, The Wolfsonian-FIU and the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU will be closed today.

Please take necessary precautions, look for downed powerlines and avoid driving through flooded roadways. Also, please monitor local media for updates from the National Hurricane Center throughout the next few days. If you see flooding on campus, please report it to FIU Police at 305-348-2626.

In the event of an emergency, FIU has a communication protocol to keep the community informed about university operations. Please look for emails, follow FIU on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, 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.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and stay safe.
