Weather Update: State of Emergency declared for much of Florida
Posted: November 7, 2022
We are tracking progress of sub-tropical storm Nicole, which is expected to strengthen into a hurricane Wednesday evening into Thursday when it will hit southeast Florida. Heavy rains and tropical-force winds are expected.
A State of Emergency was declared by Gov. Ron DeSantis for 34 counties, including Hillsborough.
As we move through the next couple days, please monitor the developing storm.
We will continue to watch the development of the storm and its trajectory.
At this time we are expecting to hold classes as scheduled, but will share changes to this plan if they occur.
We highly encourage you use a weather app on your phone for emergency notifications. Please use the resources below to remain safe throughout the storm and continue to read all Gannon University communications.
