Weather-related Information Regarding Hurricane Sandy
With a high wind warning in effect for the Roanoke Valley and the possibility of
power outages, Ferrum College students, faculty, and staff are advised to fully charge
cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices; remain indoors if winds become
exceptionally high to avoid downed power lines, flying debris, and broken glass; and
if there is a power outage, do not light candles.
Housing and Residence Life staff members and Campus Safety will relay important
information as needed and notify students of any changes in operation resulting from
weather conditions and power outages.
If you own a vehicle, please do not attempt to cross water in the roadways, and
limit your travel accordingly. Hopefully each of you have a flashlight should it be
needed. In the event of a power outage, please continue to utilize your safety and
security practices, securing your room at all times to avoid potential thefts, which
increase opportunistically during abnormal events such as power outages.
Call 365-4444 to report any emergencies. Safety is a personal choice, responsibility
and most of all, a partnership with our officers and our students, faculty, and staff.
