IFSA-Butler is currently monitoring Tropical Storm Nate, which has formed in the Caribbean. Weather models indicated that this system will either remain a tropical storm or strengthen to a category 1 hurricane. Our students and emergency contacts in Cuba, Mexico and Costa Rica have been notified, and all students are safe and accounted for. Our resident offices have instructed students to follow the direction of local authorities and stay close to their host family homes until the storm passes.
We will continue to make updates should the system change course. If you would like more information about the weather system, please see the following online resources:
