We have had many near misses this year, but it looks like this storm is going to have a more direct impact on New Orleans. Zeta is forecast to hit near us Wednesday afternoon and bring tropical storm winds to this area, possibly low hurricane-force winds.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, we will teach virtually. Dining services, the library and the University Sports Complex will remain open until noon. The College of Law will send information about their class schedule to their students soon. And, the presentation of our annual report to faculty and staff will be rescheduled. If you are in an area outside of the levee system or are otherwise impacted by the storm please work with your supervisor or professors directly.
The storm should pass through quickly. If campus does not lose power and storm damage in our area is minimal, we will resume campus operations fully on Thursday morning. We will let you know by 7 a.m. on Thursday. For instructors and students, now is a great time to ensure you have the Canvas app downloaded for quick messages and updates. Reminders of how to prepare are on this website. Please stay vigilant and safe. This too shall pass.
