The College of William and Mary will be evacuated with Hurricane Irene looming approximately two days away from Williamsburg. The College is also closed Friday and Monday for the evacuation. Governor Bob McDonnell declared a state of emergency for Virginia early Thursday.

While the state of emergency does not include evacuations for the Hampton Roads area, Virginia is bracing for floods and hurricane winds. Students will be notified of the College closing through the campus-wide notification system.
