Hurricane Irma Update
Tigerville SC (September 9, 2017) North Greenville University is closely monitoring Hurricane Irma which continues to fluctuate now that the storm has made landfall along the western coast of Florida. If the storm stays on its current path, it will pass well to the west of South Carolina. However, while this is good news for the Upstate, it does not mean the university will not feel the effects of the storm.
The National Weather Service projections and local meteorological forecasts are issuing high wind and flood advisories for the Upstate, with the highest impact to be felt in the western parts of the Upstate and the southern North Carolina mountains. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts reaching 50 mph, and up to 4 inches of rain are possible. These conditions could change again over the next 24 hours as the storm’s path continues to fluctuate. It appears the strongest effects of the storm will be felt in our area beginning Monday afternoon and extending into Tuesday morning.
The university believes that the best course of action to safeguard the safety and well-being of those who have to travel and for those who are on campus, will be to cancel all classes at both Tigerville and Greer campuses until Wednesday, September 13. Both campuses will remain open tomorrow for all staff who believe they can safely make it in to the office. Staff members are asked to check with their supervisor and keep them informed of their situation. All athletes and ministry teams who have events scheduled over the next 48 hours should contact their coaches and ministry team leaders to learn the status of their events.
Students, faculty, and staff are asked to continue to watch for Blackboard alerts, emails, text messages, and the website for any updated information. Those on campus, please watch for these alerts throughout the day tomorrow in the event conditions warrant moving to one of the shelters established on campus.
Todd Dining Hall will be open Monday and Tuesday from 10:30am until 2:00pm and again from 5:00pm until 7:00pm.
Join us as we continue to pray for those who are in the path of the storm and those who are already suffering from its devastation.
