GW is Monitoring Hurricane Joaquin
October 1, 2015 5:10 p.m.
The George Washington University continues to monitor forecasts and reports regarding Hurricane Joaquin as it travels north along the east coast of the United States. Friday morning models from the National Weather Service predict a low probability for Joaquin to make landfall on the east coast, as the storm is tracking further East.
The Washington metropolitan region may experience sustained winds and heavy rain that will increase today and is expected to continue through Monday or Tuesday. This storm is expected to cause flooding and wind damage. For updated weather information, monitor Weather.gov and local media.
Models will continue to change as the storm progresses and we will continue to monitor the weather. In the event of a change to the university’s operating status, information will be posted to CampusAdvisories.gwu.edu. Operating status changes also will be communicated via GW Alerts (text and e-mail), the GW Information Line at 202-994-5050, and social media via Twitter and Facebook.
