Despite the inclement weather that faced Ithaca Wednesday and the City of Ithaca’s warning against potential flooding, Cornell remained open Wednesday.

The University’s emergency preparedness team was “continuing to monitor a developing winter storm” on Wednesday afternoon, according to the University. As of 11 p.m. Wednesday night, there were no changes in the University’s operating status.

Wednesday night, the Ithaca Police and Fire Departments monitored areas, including Six Mile, Cascadilla and Fall Creek for ice jams, which could cause potential ice jams, according to a City press release.
