How do I know if VIU is closed due to weather?
You can always check the VIU homepage to see if we have cancelled classes for the day. You may also watch the following news stations or check their websites to see if we have cancelled classes:
Fox 5 (www.myfoxdc.com)
ABC 7 & News Channel 8 (www.wjla.com)
Another option is to tune your radio to WTOP (FM 103.9 or FM 103.5) for updates.
What can you expect?
We will probably see a lot of rain, some wind, and maybe some power outages. If the wind is very strong, some trees may fall. Rain may also flood some of the roads.
What can you do to be prepared?
- Stay up-to-date with the latest information by visiting the Weather Channel (or your favorite news station) on TV or on your computer. (www.weather.com)
- Make sure you have a flashlight with fresh batteries.
- Purchase bottled water and food that doesn’t require electricity to prepare.
- When possible, stay at home. Roads may not be safe due to fallen trees or flooding.
- Use common sense and stay safe!
