Campus safety officials are closely monitoring Hurricane Irma and preparing response measures should the university be impacted.
Gov. Roy Cooper declared a State of Emergency for North Carolina effective at 8 a.m. on Sept. 7. This declaration allows the state to begin pre-positioning resources and to request federal assistance prior to any impact from Hurricane Irma. Currently, the declaration is only prohibiting price gauging. It does not affect our campus operations.
We will provide updates to the campus community as needed, and ensure safety measures are executed to protect the campus community from the storm's impact. If a weather condition warrants your immediate attention or action, you will receive a RamAlert.
In the coming days, we encourage you to:
- Monitor this storm using our campus weather station, WSSU WeatherSTEM.
- Ensure you're registered for RamALERTs.
- Use the hurricane safety tips from the National Weather Service.
- Heed any orders issued by campus, local, state and/or federal officials
