We can expect heavy rain for the next 5-6 days. There is a small chance (20-30%) that a system in the Gulf of Mexico will develop into a tropical storm, however at this time those chances are diminishing.
We will monitor the entire Atlantic basin throughout the 2018 hurricane system and provide information to the Rollins College community.

We would like to thank you all for your cooperation and support during the recent emergency event on the campus. We put out the initial alert based on information we were given at the time, in an effort to keep our students and campus community informed. As soon as we got clarifying information, we provided additional updates, but we believe it’s better to communicate quickly as opposed to waiting and seeing, especially given the national educational climate we are in.
