Monitoring Potential Tropical Cyclone One

Message 1 – June 3, 2022  

Palm Beach Atlantic University officials are closely monitoring the progress of the tropical system moving across the Gulf of Mexico and toward Florida. The University is open and operating normally. We will continue to observe this weather system and update you if conditions change and affect campus operations.

A tropical storm warning and flood watch are in effect for all of South Florida. A watch means conditions are possible, whereas a warning means that conditions are expected. Orlando should be prepared for inclement weather.

Please use extreme caution this weekend, as tropical storms can produce heavy rain, winds and wind gusts. Flash flooding from excessive rain is the primary threat of the storm.

Now is a good time to review your personal plans and gather supplies. Students, faculty and staff should monitor University email and pba.edu for updates.

Before you leave the office today, Information Technology Services asks you to: 

  • Backup critical business files to the F:, G: and/or OneDrive.
  • Take your laptops and charging cords with you.
  • Cover and secure, or encase and seal, vulnerable equipment in waterproof containers.
  • DO NOT unplug computers, printers, and other electrical equipment unless specifically instructed to do so. DO NOT cover computer technology in plastic.

How do I reset my PBA password or unlock my account from off-campus? 
PBA network users can reset their PBA login credentials through an easy-to-use website that allows you to change your password and unlock your account, even if you have forgotten your password! You can access this tool from any computer or mobile device on and off-campus. Simply navigate to: https://pwreset.pba.edu/ and choose your desired option. 

This will be the final communication about this storm unless there are significant changes. 

We value our PBA community and hope that you have a restful and safe weekend!
