As a winter storm surges across Texas, many students prepare to keep warm on campus.
As it began to plunge into South Texas, TAMIU took precautions to avoid any damages such as a wintery mix. Since Laredo doesn’t get much inclement weather, it is uncommon to see students in long-sleeve clothes, knowing the city is typically arid.
A Universitywide email went out Friday to all students and faculty: “The University will continue to monitor weather and road conditions and announce any appropriate changes here and on the University’s website and social media.”
According to the National Weather Service, weather predictions show forecasts in the low 20s to a high in the low 60s throughout the week. An alert for hazardous outlook was issued as information becomes available.
TAMIU is expected to take precautions and will monitor the situation if the weather changes, to avoid any damages like what happened last year with power outages, broken pipes and delays on the University campus.
