MAU Hurricane Season 2022 Alert 3: Notice of Tropical Depression Nine
Dear Student, Faculty and Staff,
Millennia Atlantic University (MAU) is closely monitoring Tropical Depression Nine and its potential impact on South Florida and the MAU campus. The 2:15 pm report from the National Weather Service of Miami-South Florida forecasts the tropical depression system to become a tropical storm by tonight, and a hurricane by next week.
While it is too early to determine if the storm will affect our region, South Florida is in the vicinity of its projected path. Therefore, we strongly urge you to have food, water, medicines, and other emergency supplies in place sooner than later. Guidelines on how to create an emergency supply kit can be found on Miami Dade’s 2022 Official Hurricane Readiness Guide.
Should an emergency occur, the University will inform students, faculty and staff of any changes in scheduling and/or cancellation of classes by email, on our MAU Alerts webpage (https://www.maufl.edu/en/news-and-events/mau-alerts) and on our social media accounts (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).
To ensure everyone’s safety, it is important that our offices have your most recent and accurate personal contact information. Students may check their personal information in the MAU student portal and if you need to update your personal information such as email or address, please get in contact with our Bursar.
Faculty and staff should verify and update personal information through the Regis HR portal.
The essential items to include in an emergency kit are as follows:
- Water-one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation.
- Food- at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food.
- Radios- battery powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert.
- Flashlights- one flashlight per person.
- Batteries- for at least three days.
- Fully charged portable electronic devices with charger
- First aid kit.
- Whistle to signal for help
- Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation.
- Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities.
- Hand Sanitizers.
- Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food).
- Local maps.
- Pet food and extra water for your pet.
- Important documents, identification, passport, insurance information.
Remember to be prepared and ready, because it only takes one storm to disrupt or endanger our lives.
Your Campus President,
Dr. Aristides Maza Duerto
