Waterford Institute of Technology has made the following contingency plans in light of the weather warnings for Storm Emma, also referred to as ‘the beast from the east’:

Waterford Institute of Technology will be open during Met Éireann Status Yellow or Status Orange weather warnings for Waterford (unless otherwise stated at www.wit.ie).

Details of current National Weather Warnings are available at http://www.met.ie.

If the weather warning status for Waterford changes to Status Red, the Institute will close and is expected to re-open once the weather warning is Status Orange or Status Yellow for Waterford, or there is no longer a weather warning in place.

As weather and road conditions will vary between WIT and their home locations we strongly advise students and staff to put their own safety first when making the decision to travel to the Institute.

Please check the National Weather Warning status at www.met.ie or through news bulletins before making any journeys. We advise that people only travel if they are confident it is safe for them to do so and to heed all travel and advisory warnings.

The Institute will be monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis and will endeavour to keep our community updated via the WIT website www.wit.ie.

Any closure or re-opening will be stated at www.wit.ie.
