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 everyone to:

  • 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.
