    Quote:It's better to be safe then sorry. It's my understanding that hurricanes can either get stronger or weaken depending on the sky conditions. I'm sure they don't want hundreds/thousands of kids stranded at school without their parents. That would be really scary for some kids.

    Stay safe!

    Well at our school it would be more like 300 kids [​IMG] I am glad that it is not as bad as the states south of us [​IMG]

    My campus shut down tomorrow. It was supposed to be our first day of school too. They just want to be safe and make sure there is no damage before they allow students back.

    My understanding is that the danger lies in downed power lines that are exposed to or in standing water.

    They probably want to clear all the debris too. Here at my house the entire yard and driveway is covered in leaves and branches.
