Februrary 1, 2024 Weather Alert
The National Weather Service has forecasted that two new storm systems will bring substantial rainfall to the
San Diego area on Thursday and Friday, February 1 and 2, with additional precipitation
expected next Monday and Tuesday. This follows the recent storms on January 22 and
the likelihood of further flooding in certain areas, as predicted by local authorities.
In response, the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services advises residents and communities to prepare for inclement weather. At MiraCosta
College, our teams will closely monitor the situation, and we encourage our students,
faculty, and staff to stay informed and prepared.
To serve our students, MiraCosta College will remain open and operational. We ask
- Extend patience and understanding to those affected or delayed by the storms.
- Close and latch all windows in offices and classrooms to prevent water damage.
- Stay alert to local news broadcasts and follow any directions emergency authorities give.
- In case of flooding, please be cautious and avoid crossing flooded areas on foot or
in a vehicle.
We understand the challenges that inclement weather can bring, especially regarding
commuting and campus accessibility. We urge you to take all necessary precautions
to ensure your safety. Should the weather adversely affect your ability to come to
campus, please communicate directly with your supervisor or instructors.
We will monitor the weather closely and provide updates as necessary.
Let's work together to ensure the safety and well-being of our entire college community during this time. Thank you for your attention and cooperation.
