Dear UNCG Community,

As you may be aware, according to the National Weather Service, Hurricane Dorian may have some effect on the Triad later this week. There is still uncertainty in the forecast, but currently the impact for our area is projected to be limited.

The UNCG Office of Emergency Management, along with University leaders, as well as state and national agency partners, are closely monitoring the forecast. We are actively communicating with all of our on- and off-campus partners. The preparedness and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our top priorities.

Beginning later today, UNCG will host approximately 35 students and staff from UNC Wilmington who are evacuating in anticipation of the storm.  We stand ready to help further if needed and are proud of our campus staff in Housing, Dining, and Kaplan Center for their efforts in making this possible.

We recognize some members of our own campus community are from areas that may ultimately be impacted by this storm. Students with specific concerns are asked to work with their professors as needed.

Please continue to monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel, and prepare as appropriate. We will continue to monitor weather conditions and provide updates as needed throughout the week via the UNCG Mobile App (available at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store), email, Spartan Alerts, and the University’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

The severe weather threat has been upgraded significantly in North Carolina to include Greensboro for today (Friday, April 19). There will be multiple rounds of storms today with the most damaging storms later this afternoon.

Below is an excerpt from the Raleigh National Weather Service Forecaster Discussion which outlines the threat…

Confidence continues to grow with respect to the severe weather potential Friday afternoon and evening. The latest update from the Storm Prediction Center has upgraded the risk for all of central North Carolina into a Moderate Risk (4 of 5) for severe weather today, the first of it`s kind in our forecast area in over three years (Last time: February 24th, 2016). Primary threats with today`s setup are widespread damaging winds, hail, tornadoes (possibly long-track tornadoes), and localized Flash Flooding. This severe setup has the potential to be a very dangerous situation, with several severe ingredients rarely seen across the eastern seaboard coming together over portions over central North Carolina. NOW IS THE TIME TO FINALIZE EMERGENCY PLANS, REPLENISH YOUR EMERGENCY SUPPLIES IN YOUR SAFE PLACE, AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A RELIABLE WAY TO RECEIVE WATCH/WARNING INFORMATION. Once you are completely prepared, check on your nearby family members and neighbors to ensure they are also prepared and aware.
