WSU Cleaning Up After Wind Storm

Updated: 4 p.m. MST

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University plans to hold evening classes as scheduled Dec. 1, except at the Weber State University Davis campus and WSU’s Kaysville Center at Davis High School. Both Davis facilities remain without power.

WSU canceled daytime classes at all locations earlier today due to high winds and blowing debris.

Evening courses will be held at the Ogden campus, Weber State University West Center in Roy, Weber State University Morgan Center in Morgan, and the WSU Training & Learning Center in Layton.

All classes starting after 4:30 p.m. are considered evening classes. Campus offices remained open Thursday afternoon. Students, faculty and staff were encouraged to stay indoors or “shelter in place” until the winds subsided. Gusts began to decrease by midday.

All testing centers remain open at all WSU locations, except WSU Davis.

Events and activities scheduled to be held on campus Thursday evening may not be affected by this cancellation. Individuals are encouraged to contact event organizers directly to find out if a specific event has been canceled or postponed.

Following an extensive review of WSU facilities, the wind storm is estimated to have done $1.84 million in damage to the Ogden and Davis campuses. Approximately 50 to 60 trees were toppled by the storm.
