Subject: Flash Flood Warning: Evening Classes to Be Held Online
Please be aware that the National Weather Service is predicting severe storms and flash flooding in the Hoboken area later this afternoon and this evening. Various models indicate the start of the storm for different times, and the impact on campus and in Hoboken is currently uncertain. As Hoboken continues to recover from last week’s storm and out of an abundance of caution, all classes scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. or later today will be held online and no in-person classes will be held. Any non-residential students who are on campus this evening during severe weather and flooding conditions may opt to shelter on campus in the Howe Center if necessary.
Student clubs and all other on-campus meetings scheduled for this evening are strongly advised to move to a virtual meeting option.
As a reminder, emergencies can arise at a moment’s notice and escalate quickly. For your own safety and to stay informed and updated regularly, we urge that you take the following steps:
- Sign up for Stevens Alerts (through Everbridge) if you have not already done so.
- Sign up for Hoboken Nixle Alerts to get timely notifications of Hoboken conditions and emergencies. You can also register for Nixle Alerts from your local community.
