Update: To enable members of the UMaine community to address any storm-related issues they have at their homes, and to facilitate post-storm assessment and recovery on campus, classes are canceled Tuesday, Oct. 31. Only storm day personnel are expected to report. Classes are scheduled to resume at 5 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1.

The Field House is open for emergency Red Cross sheltering for area community residents.

Power is restored to east side of campus and expected to remain stable. West side remains without power.
