Current Update

Thursday, October 11, at 5:30 a.m.

Good morning, Jacksonville University community. We hope you are safe and well. Our thoughts are with our friends in the panhandle and the southeast who have been impacted by Hurricane Michael.

We are relieved to report that the University did not experience any significant damage. As Michael moved from Florida into Georgia, it followed a more northerly track than expected. During the night, it weakened to a tropical storm, and we were fortunate here in Jacksonville to see the outer bands of the system dissipate before bringing us much more than wind and some light showers.

The University will resume normal operating hours today. Classes, activities, and business will be conducted at their usual times.

If you are commuting to campus, or otherwise venturing out onto the roads in Jacksonville, please be careful as you move through the city. In particular, there may be debris in the roads, standing water, or other damage. Stay alert, and drive safely.

This will be the Emergency Preparedness Team’s final update regarding Hurricane Michael. Thank you for your attention and cooperation. Stay safe, Dolphins.
