Emergency Management

Tropical Storm Erika has formed in the Caribbean and is heading west, approaching Puerto Rico. College officials are currently monitoring the storm's track from the National Hurricane Center and the State Emergency Operations Center. 

As of 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27, the forecast track indicates that Erika is weakening and expected to turn toward the west-northwest but still has the potential to become a Category 1 Hurricane off Florida's east coast by Monday morning. However, due to uncertainty in forecasting, the entire Florida peninsula remains in the potential track of the storm. At this point there are no watches or warnings issued for the State of Florida.

The College will continue to monitor and track the storm and make any decisions based on State and Local Emergency Management requests. At this time there are no plans to cancel activities or classes. As a reminder, you can sign up for NCFSafe at http://www.ncf.edu/ncf-safe for emergency notifications.
