TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - FAMU has provided an update on its operations following Hurricane Michael.

FAMU officials say the campus did not lose power, and if anyone knows of issues on campus that need immediate attention that person should call FAMU Public Safety and Security at 850-599-3256.

Many students living off campus are among the tens of thousands of people in the Tallahassee area who lost power.

Starting Friday, October 12, Tookes Recreation Center, at 2101 Wannish Way, will be open 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. for students who would like to use the showers. The showers will also be available Saturday and Sunday. 

"We want to make sure our students have the things that they need to be prepared and feel safe in this environment," said William Hudson Jr., Vice President of Student Affairs. "We know there are several thousand people without power in the city of Tallahassee. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families effected by this disaster."

The fitness center will open on Monday as well as other campus facilities. 

Brunch will be served 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Continuous service (with limited options) will continue from 2 - 5 p.m., and dinner will be served 5 - 7 p.m.

The Student Union and Activities will open its Multipurpose Rooms for students to use as study lounges, starting Saturday, from noon - 9 p.m. The study lounges will be open through Sunday during the designated times.

Classes will resume Monday, October 15, at the main campus, FAMU Developmental Research School and satellite sites, including Crestview.
