Georgia Tech Monitoring Irma for Potential Impact to Campus Operations
The Georgia Tech Police Department’s Office of Emergency Preparedness has been monitoring Hurricane Irma. Current projections of the storm’s path indicate some risk for the main campus in Atlanta. High winds are anticipated starting as early as the morning of Monday, September 11, and significant rainfall is expected to follow.
Monitoring and reevaluations will continue throughout the weekend. For current conditions, the campus community may visit the National Weather Service's local forecast office (mobile device uses may prefer this link), or download a smartphone app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
Given the governor’s announcement regarding mandatory evacuations along the Georgia coast, the Georgia Tech Savannah campus will be closed Friday, September 8, through Tuesday, September 12. Classes in Savannah have been cancelled for the week of September 11-15.
Any changes to normal operations for the Atlanta campus will be posted to www.gatech.edu and communicated via Tech’s social media channels.
