Florida State University is telling students at its Panama City campus not to return to campus, or even the Panama City area “if possible.”

Administrators “completed a preliminary assessment of the FSU Panama City campus on Thursday,” the school said in a statement.

“The campus sustained roof and water damage, as well as multiple broken windows, due to Hurricane Michael,” it said.

“Crews immediately began repairs Thursday evening, but the campus will not reopen on Monday as originally planned. University administrators are working with local officials to assess the situation and will announce a new reopen date as soon as possible.

“The university asks the public to please avoid the area so as not to impede repair work. More information will be shared as soon as it becomes available.”
