Hurricane plan

Lynn University Hurricane Plan

Lynn University’s event and emergency management plan, maintained by the Department of Campus Safety, defines procedures for inclement weather, including tropical storms and hurricanes. Here’s what you need to know:

Emergency contact

Hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. Every June, Campus Safety issues a test message notifying the university of the season’s arrival and encouraging all students and employees to update their emergency contact information. This information can be updated at any time via my.lynn.edu.

Communication

We encourage students and employees to monitor local weather for the most updated and accurate information. Students and employees may also wish to subscribe to local weather alerts including our county's, AlertPBC.

In the event of severe or dangerous weather, the university will inform students and employees about precautions to take or procedures to follow via various emergency notification methods. These may include posting messages to lynn.edu/alert, distributing email, text or voicemail messages, activating a call center, or providing in-person instruction and guidance.

Storm readiness

Lynn University meets the National Weather Service’s “StormReady” requirements. Learn more.

Lynn is not located within an evacuation zone, flood zone or storm surge zone. Our storm preparations and facilities can accommodate only our on-campus student community and the university's designated “first responder” staff in the event of a tropical storm or hurricane. The university is not a public evacuation shelter and cannot accommodate non first-responder employees, non-residential students, their families or guests. Nonresident students and Lynn employees who are not first responders should make their own evacuation and/or storm preparedness plans.

Any residential student who wishes to leave campus for the duration of a storm must submit a campus departure form to Housing and Residence Life staff. Residential students who will remain on campus must also notify Housing and Residence Life.

The best plan is to be prepared. Additional information regarding the county and personal hurricane preparedness are available at the National Weather Service’s National Hurricane Center and the Palm Beach County’s hurricane preparedness website
