The Student Recreation Center reopens today at 10 a.m.; Fogler Library is closed until 7:30 a.m. tomorrow, Nov. 1.
Power is restored to east side of campus and expected to remain stable. West side remains without power.
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. Only storm day personnel are expected to report. Classes are scheduled to resume at 5 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1.
Residential students who were evacuated elsewhere on campus have returned to their halls during daylight hours.
The evacuation was for the safety and security of our residential students. Without power, fire suppression systems are off in the residence halls and there is no illumination for emergency exits in the dark. Students were evacuated before sundown.
Updates as they become available.
