The Rector of the University of Iceland has sent the following announcement to University staff and students due to the weather warning for the Reykjavík area:
Dear students and colleagues,
There is a major storm forecast for tomorrow (Friday). An orange/red weather warning has been issued for the Reykjavík area and due to the storm, classes will be cancelled tomorrow. I urge you all to take care and stay up to date with announcements from the Meteorological Office. I would also point out that all staff finding it difficult to travel to work due to the weather has the option of working at home if possible.
