This could mean high winds, rain and thunderstorm activity in St. Kitts Sunday and Monday.

Campus updates will be as follows:

  • Saturday 6 p.m. Update will provide information on shelter requirements (if needed) on campus
  • Sunday 6 a.m. General Weather Update
  • Sunday 6 p.m. Update will indicate the status of campus operations, including campus closure

Please continue to monitor your email for updates, and refer to the Hurricane Preparedness information available on the RUSVM website to ensure that you are prepared in the event of a serious weather event. Should storm conditions intensify or warrant further updates, RUSVM will notify the campus community by email, SIREN message, Twitter updates(https://twitter.com/RossVetSchool) and posts on the RUSVM Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/RossVetSchool).
