Campus Prepares for Weather Related to Hurricane Sandy
SUNDAY, OCT. 28... In anticipation of potentially severe weather spawned by Hurricane Sandy that could hit Central New York beginning late Monday night, Le Moyne Campus Security, Residence Life, Facilities Management and others involved with emergency preparedness on campus are closely monitoring the potential impact of the system. According to current information, weather for the region could include strong winds, and significant rain that could produce flash flooding. As is the case with any severe weather system, there is also the potential for extended power outages.
The impact of the storm on the Le Moyne campus is unknown at this point. The College has contingency plans and systems to maintain essential campus functions in the event of an emergency, including backup power systems. Food service will continue to be provided in the LaCasse Dining Center, and the campus will continue to be supported by Student Development, Facilities Management and Campus Security. It is strongly recommended that students living on campus remain at Le Moyne to avoid the risk of travel in hazardous conditions and that everyone exercise caution being outdoors when the potential exists for high winds.
We will closely monitor the storm and provide additional information as needed through email, on the home page of our web site (www.lemoyne.edu) and, if necessary, through the Heights Alert emergency notification system. For tracking information from the National Weather Service, visit www.weather.gov. For emergency assistance on campus, call 445-4444; off campus or from a cell phone, call 911.
