FIU is monitoring Tropical Depression 9 | FIU News

Dear members of the university community,

At FIU, we are monitoring Tropical Depression 9, which formed in the Caribbean today and will likely become a hurricane late this weekend or early next week.

Although it is too early to determine if the storm will impact our region, South Florida is currently in the storm’s projected path. Faculty and staff should review their department’s Continuity of Operations Plan in the event that preparations need to be made over the weekend.

This is a good time to make sure you and your family have several days’ worth of supplies and medicines. Please monitor local media and pay attention to updates from the National Hurricane Center throughout the next few days.

FIU has a communication protocol to keep the community informed about university operations during emergencies, including storms. Please look for emails, follow FIU on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and check FIU News and monitor local media for updates.

Storm preparation may be a new experience for many members of our university community. For tips on what to do, please visit the FIU Department of Emergency Management website or Miami-Dade County’s Hurricane Guide.

Thank you for your cooperation.
