Hurricane Matthew

October 5, 2016

The Emergency Management Executive Team continues to closely monitor Hurricane Matthew. We are expecting high winds and possible rainbands, the worst of which is expected to occur between 5 a.m. and 1 p.m., Friday. College operations will remain normal.

Staff members may contact supervisors with concerns about localized poor weather conditions, bridge closures and children at home due to school cancellations. If possible, supervisors may consider allowing staff members to work from home or make up missed hours over the next several days.

Please continue to monitor your email, text messages, the local news and Eckerd’s Tropical Weather website, www.eckerd.edu/tropical — especially before leaving for campus. EMET will notify you in the event that a change in the weather system requires a change in College operations.
