Strong wind advisory

The W&M Emergency Management Team sent the following message to the campus community March 1, 2018 - Ed.

Dear William & Mary Community -

The National Weather Service is predicting strong winds for the Williamsburg area tonight into Sunday morning, at times expected to reach 40+ mph. Forecasters are indicating the strongest winds are likely in Williamsburg midday/early afternoon tomorrow.

Given the predicted strength of the winds, downed trees and power lines are possible. Please stay away from downed wires and report any downed trees or wires to WMPD (x14596). In the event areas of campus lose power, notifications regarding campus services will be communicated to the campus community through RAVE. If you have not yet enrolled in the university's mass notification system, you may do so at

I also realize next week is Spring Break and many of you will be leaving campus. As you head out, please be aware that you may encounter strong wind gusts and that high profile vehicles are particularly susceptible.

For those of you remaining on campus, the EMT will continue to monitor the weather and update the campus community as necessary.

Sam Jones, Chair
W&M Emergency Management Team
