Tropical Storm Nicole is expected to become a hurricane before making landfall along the east coast of Florida Wednesday night. In Tallahassee, there’s the potential for tropical storm winds and rain on Thursday.  

President Larry Robinson, Ph.D., and the Emergency Management team will continue to monitor Nicole closely and will make announcements regarding the Tallahassee main campus, accordingly.  Meanwhile, employees are removing banners, tents and other temporary structures ahead of the weather system’s strong winds.
