Univ. of Miami Parent Orientation Spawns Lots of Hurricane Prep Questions

Plenty of out-of-state parents dropping their "most precious assets" off at school while Hurricane Dean is reported by all news media as a dangerous storm headed straight for Jamaica caused a fair amount of concern should the storm have tracked farther North. Fortunately, the University of Miami sounds to be very well prepared having learned valuable lessons from Andrew 14 years ago. I think the administrators did a real nice job reassuring parents that there is a plan, there is plenty of supplies, and there is an effective communication plan for students and parents alike.

Let's hope they don't have to implement it!

The plan is much more up-to-date than their public website on the topic which as of today still says 2006
