UPDATE 12:37 PM: Rhode Island has just been upgraded to a tropical storm warning. Take cover!!
Hurricane Earl is blowing, sweeping, barreling, whatever overdramatic action verb you prefer, this way. Panic!!
No, not really. No one really seems sure what we should be doing.
The University sent an email this morning to the student body saying they’ve been closely monitoring the situation (that’s reassuring) and giving advice for how to handle it – like closing windows (do they realize how hot it is??) and avoiding the beach during the storm (duh).
