RU weather updates

Radford University is monitoring the developing weather situation related to Hurricane Florence, which may impact our area later this week. Earlier this afternoon, University officials met with City of Radford officials to discuss the weather forecast, storm preparations and response efforts.

In order to provide guidance and information to the campus community, a website has been created to share Hurricane Florence updates. Please visit for additional information and regular updates. Also, please monitor the Radford University email system and Facebook and Twitter accounts for informational updates. Emergency personnel, facilities personnel and University officials will be on campus for the duration of the storm to provide assistance.

Any and all emergency alerts will be sent utilizing the RU Alert system, and any campus closures and/or service disruptions will be posted on the Radford University homepage and communicated via the email and alert systems. The University will issue an update at approximately 10:00 AM tomorrow (Wednesday, September 12, 2018) with latest weather forecast and on-going planning efforts.

Please know that the safety of Radford University students, faculty, and staff is our main concern and at the center of our continued efforts to plan for and respond to the storm.
