University delays classes, activities until 10 a.m.


All University classes and activities will be delayed until 10 a.m. tomorrow morning due to severe weather and potential flash flooding across Austin.

While classes before 10 a.m. will be cancelled, UT shuttles will start running at 8:45 a.m.

Due to the ever changing nature of weather, Bob Harkins, associate vice president for campus safety and security asked all members of the UT community to monitor the conditions in their areas.

Students with classes that will have started before 10 a.m. should ask their professors for information, Harkins said. He further requested that instructors and supervisors work with employees who may have students in local school districts that have their own delays and closures.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch at 10:11 p.m. for the Austin and San Antonio areas from now until Tuesday afternoon, unless the watch is cancelled beforehand.
