ANNOUNCEMENTS


POWER OUTAGE LAST EVENING
Last night our electrical power supplier Met-Ed experienced an outage on their system that created voltage spikes and other momentary irregularities along the distribution system.  As a result of this instability, two of the main electrical feeds at the university tripped off-line resulting in a power loss to most of North Campus.  Our folks worked through the night and power has been restored to the affected areas of campus.  However we are still in the process of restoring communication to many of our building HVAC systems and will complete this process as soon as possible.  Until this process is complete you may experience some abnormal room temperatures.  Please contact the Work Control Center at x31594 should you need assistance.  Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.
