ASU down too

Posted By on Thu, Jan 29, 2009 at 2:07 PM

Arkansas State University has had to close for the week, too, on account of intermittent power failures thanks to ice damage.

Ice photos from the Northeast welcome.

Utilities briefed legislators and executive agencies today. Bad, in case you didn't know. The Electric Co-op reports it has 7,000 poles down, far more than were downed in the cataclysmic ice storm of 2000.

Trivia: Arkansas may account for the first disaster declaration of the Obama presidency.


Due to intermittent power failure on campus, effective at 1 p.m. today,
Arkansas State University will close until Monday, February 2. In order
to accommodate students living on campus, the Student Union and Dining
Hall will remain open.

The Payroll Office in the Administration Building will open Friday,
January 30, from 8-11 a.m. in the lobby to provide checks to employees
not on direct deposit.

Also, the Convocation Center will remain open as a community shelter.
