Salisbury University Provides Shelter From Sandy

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - As the wind and rain picked up and Sandy made its presence known on Delmarva, Salisbury University officials made the call to bring all on-campus students to one central location for shelter.

According to Dr. Dane Foust, Vice President of Student Affairs, nearly 600 students were sheltered in Mags gym.

Dr. Foust told us the decision was made because "really safety is of the utmost importance to us and we thought having the students together in a place where we can provide supervision, support."

The university had games, food, movies, and other activities to keep the students occupied while pilled in the gymnasium.

Because of the nature of the storm, Dr. Foust says he isn't sure when the students will be able to return to their residence halls, but Monday night he said "We're going to be re-assessing in the morning, we're following the weather very closely to see what kind of damage has happened on the campus and in the community."
