Tropical Depression Florence Update

Posted on Sunday, September 16th, 2018 by Zachary R. Smith under Archived, Emergency Management, Police - General Information.
Update 9/16/2018 @ 9:30 AM

Dear UNCG Community,

As we have seen, the impacts of Hurricane Florence have been substantial and widespread.  There will be lasting effects throughout our region. Across the state, numerous roads and highways are closed or unsafe for travel, and there are significant recovery and emergency management efforts underway.

As announced on Saturday, in consultation with local, state and federal officials, UNCG (like many other state universities) has canceled classes for Monday, September 17 to allow more time for the many students who left the Triad in advance of the storm to more safely return.

Additionally, the University will operate at Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Offices will reopen, and non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work.

We expect to return to normal operations and a full academic and activity schedule on Tuesday, September 18.  Most regular campus services will be available as normal for students effective Monday morning.

Students who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors to make appropriate arrangements. Please also carefully monitor Canvas and other communications channels for class-specific updates. Faculty will work with students who are facing challenges returning to their normal schedules.

We know many of our students have family, friends and loved ones who may be impacted by this storm. If you are in need of urgent mental health resources, please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. Employees with any concerns or questions about Employee Assistance Programs, benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.

Above all else, we ask everyone to consider their safety and monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel.  We will continue to monitor the situation.  You can expect another communication on Monday to confirm plans or address any new changes as conditions evolve.

Thank you.

Update 09/15/2018 @ 7:35 PM

Dear UNCG Community,

As we look ahead to the coming week, the immediate and long-term impacts of Hurricane Florence remain significant. Weather is still a substantial challenge across our state.

In the interest of creating the safest possible conditions for our students and based on the guidance of local and state agencies, UNCG has elected to cancel classes for Monday. This should allow for safer travel conditions to develop in much of the state. We will also move to Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work. We anticipate resuming full operations and academic activities on Tuesday.

Students are urged to exercise good judgement and monitor local weather forecasts and road conditions when determining travel plans. Those who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors and seek help if needed from the Dean of Students office. Make decisions that keep you safe.

We recognize many in our Spartan community – students, faculty and staff – have family, friends and loved ones who have been directly impacted by this storm. We also understand that many of our students may be dealing with stress as they manage their way through individual difficulties. We are here to help you. Students needing additional guidance and support should please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. The Dean of Students office will also be operational next week. Employees with any concerns or questions about benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.

We are working with partners across the state to continuously assess the situation, and we will communicate further as needed.

Thank you and be safe!

Update 09/12/2018 @ 10:15 AM

Dear Campus Community,

UNC Greensboro, in consultation with regional, state and national agencies and experts, continues to closely monitor the progress and path of Hurricane Florence. We recognize that the path of the storm has shifted and predictions around impacts for the Triad are changing. We must remain vigilant as this situation evolves and continue, as always, to ensure the safety of our UNCG community.

The latest information shows a potentially reduced impact for our immediate area. That said, this remains a very dangerous storm and we urge people to continue to take it seriously. Please continue to monitor information from the National Weather Service in Raleigh for the latest.

Many school systems, public institutions and other facilities have also made decisions to close or reduce operations. As a result, many students, faculty and staff have made various plans based on the available information. This storm remains unpredictable, especially until it makes landfall. We will continue with our current plans as stated here.

It is our hope that the impact on UNCG and our region is less than anticipated.  We will continue to make decisions to best protect our community, students andemployees. We will continue to provide updates throughout this event.

Thank you.

Update 09/11/2018 @ 10:53 AM

Dear Campus Community,

Due to the anticipated and potential effects of Hurricane Florence in the Triad, UNC Greensboro will cancel all classes and all other university activities beginning at noon on Wednesday, September 12.  At this time, all home athletic events are also cancelled beginning Wednesday at noon.  Updates on athletic events will be available at the UNCG Athletics website.  For employees, UNCG will enter Condition 1 of the UNC System adverse weather policy at noon on Wednesday, and at 5 p.m. we will enter Condition 2.

Normal operations are anticipated to resume at 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 16. Regular class schedules are planned to begin again Monday morning, September 17. We will continue to monitor the situation and update the campus community with any changes.

All university residence halls, critical on-campus facilities and university dining facilities plan to remain open for the duration of this storm unless specific safety concerns arise. Students that live off-campus should prepare ahead of the storm by ensuring they have at least a 3-day supply of nonperishable food, water and other essentials.  Residential students can expect to receive additional updates from Housing and Residence Life throughout the storm.  We recommend the following resources to help everyone prepare and stay informed:

The safety and preparedness of our community is our top priority.  While information is still developing about the specifics of this storm, everyone in our community should take it seriously.  Regardless of the track, the potential for several days of heavy rainfall, flooding and gusty winds across portions of North Carolina will exist. These impacts may lead to downed trees, prolonged power outages, blocked roadways, closed bridges, and disruptions to water/sewer supply.

We encourage all of our students, faculty and staff to review weather and road conditions to make well-informed, safe choices about travel. If you live east of Greensboro, please consult all relevant local resources and consider remaining here where we will have critical services and infrastructure available.  Any students choosing to travel home outside of the area are highly encouraged to do so before strong winds are expected to begin in the Triad by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

We will provide updates as needed throughout the event via email,spartanalert.uncg.edu and the university’s Facebook and Twitter pages.  Please also monitor information from National Weather Service in Raleigh.  The UNCG Office of Emergency Management will be monitoring the weather throughout the storm and may issue emergency alerts if conditions become dangerous on campus.

Take care, be safe and stay connected for more information.
