Sunday, August 30th, 2015, 11:15am EDT: Business as Usual

Status:  Business as Usual

Message:  We have ceased monitoring Tropical Storm Erika, which dissipated yesterday afternoon. This was a non-event in our area; everyone is safe and nothing was damaged.

While we are expecting a good deal of much needed rain and it’s a good day to bring an umbrella if you have one, classes will meet as scheduled on Monday, August 31, 2015. There is a river flood warning in effect, so we remind our students who commute (particularly from points south crossing the Peace River) to be mindful of road conditions. As always, you are always the ultimate judge of whether or not it is safe to travel.

As a reminder, to subscribe to Webber’s free emergency text notification system, text the word Webber to 888777.

Friday August 28th, 2015 4:30pm EDT: Business as Usual

Status:  Business as Usual

Message:  As of now, we are at “business as usual” status. The Emergency Committee has met, continues to monitor the storm, and will meet again over the weekend as conditions warrant.

At this time, Saturday classes will meet. There are no planned athletic events on the campus over the weekend.

If a decision is made to cancel Monday classes, information will be posted by or before 6:00pm EDT on Sunday, August 30th, 2015.

YOU are always the ultimate judge of whether or not it is safe to travel to and from Webber.   If it’s not safe to get here, whether or not classes are meeting is immaterial… you shouldn’t risk your life to get here or anywhere else.
