Alerts, Shut Downs & Detours



A lightning strike at the campus substation caused a power outage in multiple facilities across campus. Temporary repairs have allowed for restoration of power to most of the facilities, however, it will take most of the evening to restore all of the HVAC systems. If the power is out in your building, please call the Physical Plant at 601.266.4414. After 4:30 p.m. please call the University Police Department at 601.266.4986.
