Randolph College officials and the Critical Incident Management Team are closely monitoring weather conditions associated with Tropical Depression Florence. The College will conduct normal operations on Monday.

Update: Sunday, Sept. 16


Florence has now been downgraded to a tropical depression and is moving up the East Coast. As we mentioned yesterday, forecasters continue to call for our area to receive the most effects from the storm system this afternoon and evening  and into Monday. We expect to receive heavy rain during this time—up to 6 inches. Although winds are not expected to be extremely strong, a few gusts over 25 mph could occur. This, along with saturated soil, increases the potential for downed trees and power outages across our region. High rain totals also increase the potential for flash flooding.


The safety of those in our community remains our foremost priority, and Randolph is prepared to respond to any storm-related issues that might arise. We encourage everyone to stay alert and aware of weather conditions outside.

At this point, the College plans to continue normal operations Monday. The Critical Incident Management Team will continue to  monitor the storm’s progress.
