New: July 27, 2020: A Message from the President: Hurricane Hanna Update

July 27, 2020: A Message from the President: Hurricane Hanna Update As 2020 continues to test our resiliency, this weekend brought us Hurricane Hanna. Once again, Islanders rose to the occasion in preparing for and dealing with the storm.  I am pleased to report that Hurricane Hanna did not cause any major damage to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.  The storm did produce a lot of debris and minor leaks in buildings around campus. Clean-up efforts began immediately after the storm, and long-term solutions are being explored for the leaks.  Additionally, we lost a transformer in the Center for the Sciences and had some power issues at the Flour Bluff Building. Fortunately, AEP responded quickly to replace the transformer and restore electricity.

Beyond the island, the Art Museum of South Texas took on a few inches of water on the lower level, but quick action on the part of museum and city staff helped mitigate the amount of water coming into the building.  We are fortunate to have staff who meticulously followed protocols and protected the artwork and the building, and we are extremely grateful that City Manager Peter Zanoni and Councilwoman Paulette Guajardo provided additional sandbags to the museum as soon as they heard there was a need.

We are still in the midst of hurricane season, and it’s important to make sure you receive emergency notifications. We sent a Code Blue message on Friday to announce our plans during the storm. If you did not receive that notification, please sign up for emergency notifications now. For technical assistance signing up for Code Blue, contact the IT Service Desk at ext. 2692 or email IThelp@tamucc.edu.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kelly M. Miller
President & CEO
Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi
