17 hours ago - 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 as information becomes available. Please exercise proper precautions as this situation continues to unfold. Stay safe, Huskies. (Posted 4:05 p.m. on 6/17/2018)
