Classes cancelled; blizzard warning issued
Wednesday, March 12, 2014

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning through 2 a.m. Thursday morning.  Up to 14 inches of snow is predicted for the Northern Chautauqua region.  Icy conditions are expected to exist as sleet and freezing rain change to snow on Wednesday afternoon.

As much as 18 inches could fall in Erie County, and up to two feet in counties bordering Lake Ontario (e.g., Niagara, Orleans, Monroe, and those farther east).  Snow intensity is expected to increase throughout the day on Wednesday, especially.

In addition, winds will be from 15 to 35 mph from the Northeast, with gusts of up to 45 mph and the potential to cause white out conditions with zero visibility at times.  Plan travel plans accordingly and avoid taking any unnecessary risks. At minimum, expect a difficult Wednesday end-of-day commute.

Please be advised that all classes and activities scheduled to begin today after 12 p.m. have been cancelled.  The campus is not closed.  All dining services will remain open for their normal operating hours.  Reed Library will remain open until 8 p.m.  All essential employees are asked to report.

Sign up for NY-Alert

Members of the SUNY Fredonia campus community are urged to sign up for NY-Alert, a secure, web-based emergency alert system implemented on campus and created and maintained by SUNY Administration and the New York State Emergency Management Office.

NY-Alert is capable of sending text, e-mail, and recorded voice messages to multiple addresses and phone numbers that persons provide to the system. Participation is widely encouraged but completely voluntary. It is provided at no cost (with the exception of any charges assessed by a person’s wireless service provider), and only a single e-mail address is required to participate.
