SUBJECT:    Storm/Wind Advisory Watch Your Surroundings

A rain and wind storm event has been forecasted for the San Diego area to arrive Friday, February 17 and last into Saturday, February 18 with the potential for rain accumulation of 1 to 2 inches and wind gusts up to 60 mph.

Please be advised that when the soil becomes saturated and during strong wind conditions, all trees, especially tall trees, are subject to broken limbs or complete failure. UC San Diego performs annual tree trimming and inspections throughout the campus and has been progressively identifying and removing suspect trees and limbs as a preventative measure for weather events such as this. However, please be cognizant of your surroundings when traveling outdoors on campus during these conditions.
