Campus Update – Hurricane Ida
Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Sunday morning.
Throughout the state this morning, we’re all watching the weather in anticipation of Hurricane Ida making landfall as a category 5 hurricane later this morning or early this afternoon. Ida’s impact will be felt in the northern part of the state later on this afternoon and into tonight.
This storm has the potential to cause significant damage in the southern part of Louisiana and is forecast to bring rain, high winds, and potential flooding in our part of the state. Our Emergency Response Team (ERT) has been watching the forecast and will continue to meet to discuss potential campus and community impacts.
We know from Hurricane Laura last year that tropical storms can bring unexpected weather to our area, so I ask that you continue to be mindful of potentially dangerous situations as the day progresses.
Many of our Tech students come from those parts of Louisiana that are in the eye of Hurricane Ida. Please know that you and your families are in our thoughts and prayers.
Currently, we are providing shelter on our campus for about 50 Nicholls State University students and staff. I am thankful for the efforts of our Student Advancement staff as they prepared Friday and Saturday to host these students and to support them during their time in Ruston. Their work is a perfect example of sharing Louisiana Tech’s unique culture – our Tech Family and Tenets – with others.
We will continue to make these students, as well as Tech students who needed to move into their on-campus housing early because of the storm, feel safe during this stressful time. If you see these students on campus, I know you will make them feel at home in our campus community.
Please watch the news for updates as Hurricane Ida moves into our state and keep the students, faculty, staff, and their families of our sister University of Louisiana System institutions in mind as we progress through the day.
