February 25, 2016 — Schools in the area closed early Wednesday because of tornado warnings and forecasts of storms and flooding. Here on campus we had rain off and on until a full-blown hail storm at 5 o’clock. UNCP sent alerts when that storm hit, telling people to shelter in place. The university stayed open during the day and for evening classes. But Robeson Community College and the Public Schools of Robeson County had both dismissed by 12:30 pm. Fayetteville Technical Community College cancelled all classes after 1:00 pm.
