Dear Members of the Wesleyan Community,
Wesleyan staff members are preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on Monday evening or Tuesday. The storm may make landfall somewhere in the New Jersey, New York, or the New England area, and it has the potential to bring strong winds, heavy rain, and flooding to Connecticut.
Wesleyan is preparing to respond to any problems resulting from the storm, including power outages. If the storm disrupts normal functioning of the University, we will alert the community via the Wesleyan homepage and e-mail. We will use our ConnectEd system for any emergency communication.
As with any severe weather, please be mindful of your own safety and be particularly alert to the possibility of power lines or tree limbs coming down in high winds. We suggest preparing an "emergency kit" of the personal items – pillow, blanket, flashlight, medications, etc. – needed in case of evacuation.
We will continue to monitor forecasts and will provide an update to the community on Monday.
