Hurricane Eta Updates

Nov 11, 2020
Wednesday, Nov. 11, 5 p.m.

The emergency management team has met throughout the day to monitor Tropical Storm Eta.  After considering the most recent forecast, we have determined that we will continue with normal operations tomorrow, Nov. 12.  At this time, it appears the most significant weather will impact our area over the next several hours and into the night.  If the storm follows the current trajectory, we believe it will have moved out of our area by tomorrow morning. 

However, as you know, weather can be unpredictable so please make sure you check your email, our website and the official Florida Poly social media channels for any changes overnight and/or in the morning.  Also, if you have difficulties reporting to campus or Florida Poly South tomorrow, please work with your supervisor for accommodations. 

Stay safe, 

Dr. Randy K. Avent, President

We are closely monitoring the path of Hurricane Eta as it continues to approach Florida and may impact our region. At this time, there are no changes to class schedules and the University will continue its regular operations. We are working to ensure our campus is ready in the event we experience its effects. However, the safety of our entire University community is our utmost priority and things may change quickly. Please pay close attention to your email for any updates, as well as our website and social media channels.  

With three weeks left in the Atlantic Hurricane Season, this storm is a good reminder to double check your hurricane preparedness and be sure you have a personal plan in place.
