The Old Dominion University Office of Student Housing has issued a notice for all students regarding Tropical Storm Ernesto. At this time, the office does not foresee a need to evacuate the residence halls. However, students should be aware of the following recommendations:

· It is possible that residence halls may lose power for a period of time. In the event of a power loss, only battery operated flashlights and lanterns are
acceptable lighting sources.

· The parking areas in and around Rogers Main, Rogers East, Gresham Main, Gresham East and the Nusbaum apartments are prone to flooding. Residents who normally park in these areas should move vehicles to the parking decks on 43rd and 45th Street, (north and south of the Ted Constant Center). The University is not responsible for storm-related damage to vehicles.

· Should closing, delays or postponements of class become necessary, those announcements may be found on the University Web site, at 683-0000 after-hours recorded message, or on local television and radio stations, WTKR-TV 3, WAVY-TV 10, WVEC-TV 13, WVBT-TV 14, WHRO-FM 90.3, WHRV-FM 89.5 and WNIS-AM 790.
