Hurricane Ike has taken a northerly turn and is headed directly for Houston.
BELHAVEN’S CAMPUS IN HOUSTON WILL BE CLOSED IMMEDIATELY, AND WILL REMAIN CLOSED THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT’S CLASSES. ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES WILL BE CLOSED THROUGH MONDAY AS WELL.
Students, faculty, and staff, should check our web site here to see if that closing will be extended. As of this time, we expect to be open again on Tuesday next week.
From the Mayor’s office in Houston:
The City of Houston will be closed tomorrow. The Mayor has requested that all Houston schools announce that they will be closed Friday. Judge Emmet with the contra flow plan has called for a mandatory evacuation in several areas of Houston with the following zip codes: 77058, 77059, 77062, 77520, 77526, 77545, 7571, 775856, and 77598.
All of us who will not be impacted by this storm need to be praying for those in its path. May the Lord give them the wisdom to evacuate, and provide safety in their travel, and calm in their uncertainty.
This is a big storm. The path of Ike can be followed here.
