This morning at 5:30 we got a call from Northeastern informing us that all classes were cancelled for the day due to inclement weather. Cyndy and Paul were also called. I got thinking, if every student, faculty member and employee received 3 calls that would be upward of 100,000 phone calls.

Ultimately, our power was off for 40 hours last week. It's so nice to have a generator.

Storm Alert Announcement Update

01/15/2008 10:36:07 AM

NEU regrets that many people on the emergency contact list were contacted along with the intended recipients during yesterday's snow storm closure. This is the first time we have used this alert system to notify the Northeastern community of campus closures, and we did not intend for or anticipate this issue. Please know that there is no need to change or remove emergency contact information. We are actively working to correct this issue to ensure that emergency contacts are not contacted in the future for non emergency situations.
