Loyola faculty and staff,
I hope that you, your homes and cars are safe, though I know this storm will have affected many of you. We received more than four inches of rain in an hour.
Those of you who would not make it to campus this morning, go ahead and stay home unless your supervisor asks you to come in for essential duties. For nonessential personnel already here, go ahead home once the streets are clear and it's safe.
Meanwhile, we are closely monitoring the storm system forecast to hit west of us this weekend. We are in close communication with our own weather service, city officials and the other universities, and will make a decision this afternoon at the latest about the rest of the week. Please continue to monitor your email, texts, and emergency.loyno.edu for the most up-to-date information about the university.
