Update to Power Outage

The source of the problem has been found and NYSEG and Buildings and Grounds are working to resolve the issue. The Library, Scandling Center, Williams, Medbery and Demarest Halls are on the same system of temporary power. It is anticipated that full power will be restored to all buildings starting at 7 a.m. tomorrow (Wednesday, May 12). For this change, Medbery and Demarest Halls will be out of power for approximately for one to two hours (estimated) starting at 7 a.m.

Tomorrow afternoon it is likely that phone service will be out for one to two hours as Williams Hall is brought back from generator to full power. More details will be available as the work status is known.

Please shut down any computers, printers, and copiers, etc. before leaving this evening in powerless buildings (Demarest, Library, Scandling, and Medbury). Buildings and Grounds people and IT people will visit each building after power is back on to assist in case of a problem.
