Day '-2' Weather UpdateIn case you are worried about what is going to happen in College Station, i think the following excerpts from the email that the International Students Services sent out provide a balanced picture -
"...the current prediction is for heavy rain, hail (balls of ice that can range in size from 1/2 centimeters to 4-5 centimeters in diameter), and winds of up to 60+ m.p.h. in College Station on Friday."
"Several international students have already asked if they should evacuate College Station and Bryan to go further north. Remember that state officials have identified areas that it will be unsafe to remain based on computer generated models and those areas are already being evacuated. The Texas highways will be filled with cars of people who are trying to leave mandatory evacuation areas. College Station and Bryan are areas that people are evauating TO from the coast. College Station and Bryan are not currently considered hazardous and therfore being evacuated. It is highly unlikely that this area will be required to evacuate, but you should continue to monitor the weather to keep up to date on the most current information. Unless we have a specific evacuation order for our area, you are likely safer here than in your cars on the road."
