Irma - Chowtime Monday morningIrma barged into Leesburg last night, an unwelcome guest, but the students and staffers who weathered the storm in the Student Center Sunday night emerged unscathed this morning.

Team Beacon arose early Monday morning to check on students and to survey the aftermath.

Power remained on through the night. Two of the three residence halls have power this morning, and crews are working to restore the third. The campus sustained minor wind and light flooding in the Chopping Block, but emerged largely not too worse for wear.

Students are putting on the feedbag w ith breakfast by dawn’s early light.

Classes tentatively will resume Wednesday, but a final determination is pending.
