Earthquake on campus (TEST 1)

There has been an earthquake in our general area. (THIS UPDATE IS ONLY A TEST. IT'S PART OF THE "GREAT UTAH SHAKEOUT" EARTHQUAKE DRILL.) It is unclear at this time how large it was or where the epicenter was. Reports are coming in from across the campus that power has been lost and water is not available. We know there are some injuries and the campus EMS along with Orem Paramedics will be helping them out.

Students, staff and faculty: Classes are canceled for the rest of the day. An Emergency Operations Center is activating and additional information will be coming out. Please stay tuned as we get organized and help those who are hurt or injured.

If you'd like to get your updates via Twitter or RSS, posts from uvu.info will automatically feed to UVU Emergency on Twitter and the UVU Emergency RSS Feed.
