RELEASED: January 30, 2009 — 10:30 a.m.
DANVILLE, KY—Centre community members: Centre College's Department of Public Safety would like to share the following updated information regarding the effects of the recent snow/ice storm on campus:
IMPORTANT: Students who are off campus for CentreTerm break should not plan on returning to campus earlier than the afternoon of Tuesday, Feb. 3. (This will give Facilities Management extra time to deal with major clean up and other tasks created by the ice storm.)
Centre community members who are able to volunteer their time and/or supplies, please try one of the following numbers and someone will direct you to where help is needed the most in the community: 324-2048; 324-2049; 324-2050; 324-2051
All main buildings on Centre’s campus have electricity and heat. Centre buildings on St. Mildred’s, Fifth Street and College Street still DO NOT have electricity and heat. Residents of these buildings should find shelter on campus.
Water service has been restored to most areas. We are still under a boil water advisory, which means that water can be used for bathing, toilet flushing, and teeth brushing. Water is still NOT safe to drink unless boiled and will not be until further notice. Those with water are asked to please continue to be conservative with its use.
Today (Fri. Jan. 30) will be a regular work day with all employees asked to come in.
Meals for Centre students will be served in Chowan today from 11 a.m. - noon and 5 p.m.-6 p.m.
Hazelrigg Gym in Sutcliffe will be open as a day shelter for the Centre and Danville communities today from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. You will need to provide your own food, beverages and bedding. NO PETS PLEASE.
The basketball games for Friday and Saturday nights and the Norton Center event for Saturday night will take place as scheduled.
The Centre Associates Dinner and the College Board of Trustees meeting will take place in Louisville as planned.
The Norton Center for the Arts performance of 100 Years of Broadway WILL BE HELD this Saturday evening, January 31 at 8:00 p.m. as scheduled. We are looking forward to having you and your guests with us for the performance.
The DPS help number (236-4357) is operational for emergencies.
Use caution if you must go out. Danville city officials report that primary roads in city limits are safe to travel and 80 percent of county roads are safe, though some areas remain slippery. Please use caution.
