East Campus Power Outages and Wind Damage

Posted: April 29, 2017

3:35 p.m.

Power is restored to all campus locations. 

 

11:30 a.m.


Due to the heavy winds overnight, several APU student housing areas are without power. These include Trinity, Engstrom, Shire Mods, and University Park (A Court), as well as the Student Health Center. At this time, we do not know when power will be restored. The Department of Campus Safety (DCS) is partnering with the Azusa Police Department and Azusa Water and Power and will provide APU with email updates as needed.

West Campus and Admin West are not impacted by the power outage. Libraries on both campuses are open for students who need internet access to study during this critical time leading up to finals.
 
Damage from the winds include a downed tree near University Park that took out power lines and damaged at least two student vehicles. Campus safety worked with residence life personnel overnight to ensure students stayed indoors to prevent injury.

There are several special events on campus today but those are not impacted at this time. 
 
DCS has established an Incident Command Post and is working with campus areas including student life and facilities to assist students with any needs that may arise.
