Status: Heightened Monitoring
Message: Monitoring Hurricane Irma
Webber International University is monitoring the approach of Hurricane Irma (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at1+shtml/204223.shtml?cone#contents).
The Campus Emergency Committee has been activated. We will meet on Tuesday, September 5th at 10:15 am and will continue to meet regularly until this storm had passed and the all clear has been given.
While Polk County, Florida is well inland and is generally recognized as an evacuation zone for coastal communities, during hurricane season Webber maintains a constant state of readiness. This includes such things as topping off cooking gas (we serve meals irrespective of whether we have electricity), stocking up on bottled water, etc. In the event that severe weather is expected, staff will remain on site throughout the storm to help insure safety and security of our residents.
