There were no significant issues on Duke’s main campus overnight. Winds will pick up during the day with projections of 20-30 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 40-45 mph in the Durham and Raleigh areas. The highest wind risk is between noon to 1 p.m. Friday.

Rain totals during the next several days are projected to be 6-10 inches, which could lead to moderate flooding in areas.

Wake County, which includes Duke Raleigh Hospital and several Duke Health clinics, is currently under a tornado watch until 5 p.m. A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for the development of a tornado. The tornado watch does not include Duke’s main campus in Durham.

Duke’s buses are running on a weekend schedule. Community members are encouraged to check the severe weather transit announcement on Duke TransLoc before heading out for real-time schedules and routes. Duke’s emergency management response teams are on site and will be working through the day and tonight to address any operational issues that arise.
