Tropical Depression 19 has strengthened and is now Tropical Storm Sally. The storm is expected to continue to intensify and may become a low-level hurricane before it makes landfall on Tuesday. There remains a great deal of uncertainty about the track the storm will take, but the New Orleans area is now under a hurricane watch, which means it is possible that we could be impacted by heavy rain and strong winds.
As we gain more certainty about the track, Loyola’s emergency management team will make a decision about whether we need to make any adjustments to our operations for early next week. We will provide an update in the late afternoon or evening Sunday./p>
