WEATHER ALERT: UNCW Monitoring Tropical Weather Conditions

Saturday, June 19, 2021

Based on forecasts from the National Weather Service, UNCW is monitoring tropical weather conditions that are projected to affect the UNCW area beginning Sunday evening (June 20). Students, faculty and staff should monitor campus email, the UNCW homepage, and UNCW social media feeds (Facebook and Twitter) on Sunday for updates from the university.

Please pay close attention to your campus inbox (subject lines with “Weather” or “Alert” merit special attention) and Facebook as they are the sources of information that will likely be updated first in the case of developments. Monitor the National Weather Service and local media outlets for current information about storm conditions.

In the event of a tornado warning, the university will activate the UNCWAlert emergency notification system, which includes voice and text messages. During a tornado warning, seek shelter immediately. Move to an interior hallway or a room on the lowest floor of the building, avoid windows and take shelter beneath a desk or heavy furniture. Wait for an all-clear message from UNCW. Updates will be shared when available. All students and employees should keep cell phones charged and powered on for the duration of the storm.
