A tree has been uprooted behind Parker Residence Hall, according to an email sent to the Parker Community by Carolina Housing.

"The tree is wedged against another, and Grounds feels it will not fall onto the building or road," the email says. "However they are unable to take it down until they get a piece of equipment to it, which will probably be tomorrow."

The area has been taped and students are asked to not use the sidewalk behind the building.

Friday afternoon, an Alert Carolina email said the effects of Hurricane Florence had started and warned about the likelihood of falling branches, trees and power lines. All are encouraged to stay sheltered and exercise caution.

At time of publication, classes have been canceled through Friday. Alert Carolina says that damage to campus will be assessed when it is safe to do so, and an update will be sent by 2 p.m. Saturday.
