WEATHER ALERT: Campus Operations and Classes to Proceed as Scheduled

Saturday, September 09, 2017

10:25 a.m. -- As previously announced, an evacuation of UNCW's campus will not be necessary as Hurricane Irma's track has shifted. Officials are confident that remaining in the Wilmington area is the best option, as conditions will likely be more hazardous in other locations. Based on the latest update from the National Weather Service, UNCW officials have determined that campus operations and classes will proceed as scheduled on Monday. However, as the forecast continues to evolve, campus officials will monitor potential impacts and must make decisions accordingly based on anticipated conditions. You will receive a status update by 7 p.m. Sunday.

Please remember that you must make the decision that is best for you. Your safety is our primary concern, but you know your circumstances better than anyone. Throughout this weather event, follow the course of action you believe is right for you.
Forecasts indicate our region will experience wind and rain between Monday morning and early Tuesday. Please remain cautious. Rip current hazards are high and there remains a possibility of localized flooding as conditions evolve. Do not attempt to drive through standing water and do not go into any storm water runoff, which could be contaminated or present other hazards.

Please continue to monitor your UNCW inboxes, the UNCW homepage and social media feeds (Facebook and Twitter), as well as local weather reports.

Thank you for your continued attention.
