Update from Loyola University New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina - 8/31/05

Loyola press release - October 2, 2005

Update from Loyola University New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina
8/31/05, 10:30 a.m.
As of this morning, Loyola's server and regular e-mail are still down. The city of New Orleans is completely without services and will be for some time. The city continues to fill with water, which makes restoring utilities and services a long term project. In the coming days, the priority continues to be ensuring the safety of the Loyola students, faculty and staff.

The Loyola administration is in touch via phone and e-mail remotely and sporadically, and they are working on plans to assist students, faculty and staff as they face these difficult circumstances. Loyola's top concern after the emergency situation is the education of its students.

There has been no official announcement to close the University for the semester, and no decision has been made about when the university will re-open. Please continue to check the AJCU website for updates. There are also plans in place to re-route the Loyola website (www.loyno.edu) to a remote site temporarily so that individuals will be able to access information this way.
