5 hours ago - Dear members of the Michigan Tech community, During the early hours of Sunday morning, we experienced an unexpected crisis. Devastating thunderstorms resulted in loss of homes and property, washed out roads, and damaged buildings. Michigan Tech has sustained some damage as well, but we are fortunate to be able to reopen our doors tomorrow. I want to take this opportunity to express my admiration and appreciation for the Michigan Tech community and the people of Houghton County. We often hear about those who answer the call to serve. Well, folks around here didn’t wait for the call—they showed up. The outpouring of support, resources, and offers to help has been humbling and comforting. It reminds us of what this community is made of—grit, determination, and heart. Although the photos and video footage of the damage are unsettling, make no mistake that we are on the road to recovery, and soon will transition from recovery to restoration. Please be assured that our Incident Command Team, Facilities personnel, IT, and many others are working around the clock to make sure our campus is safe. In the coming days, they will continue to share information as it becomes available. Please continue to check mtu.edu/alert for updates. There is more work to be done, but I have no doubt that as a community we will work together to see it through. President Glenn Mroz

Yesterday - Since early Sunday afternoon, the Incident Command Team (ICT) and University leadership have been monitoring two critical issues that impact a decision to reopen campus. First, the roads in and around our community have sustained extensive damage. ICT is in contact with Houghton County regarding road safety and navigability. Second, power to campus has temporarily been shut down. The Administration Building sustained some flooding in the basement, which is a hub of electrical power distribution. Safety is of paramount importance, and Facilities personnel are working to resolve the situation in the Administration Building before returning power to campus. ICT will monitor these issues overnight and communicate assessments in the morning. We will also continue to update the University community at mtu.edu/alert as information becomes available. Please exercise proper precautions as this situation continues to unfold. Stay safe, Huskies. (Edit: posted 4:05 p.m. on 6/17/2018. Newer information is available.
