Norfolk, Va -  Norfolk State University is preparing students for Hurricane Joaquin.  After a campus announcement was received Thursday, students began to consider how serious the storm would be.

According to Meteorologist Myles Henderson's tropical updates, Hurricane Joaquin threatens to bring hurricane force winds and heavy rain to the area.

Due to these updates on the weather, Norfolk State University prepared students by sending out a plethora of emails on preparations and precautions to take before the storm hits.

"I really don't know what to expect as far as the hurricane. The last time I was in a hurricane was a couple of years ago, so hopefully it doesn't hit but I'm not too sure. And to prepare for the hurricane I have to stock up on all the groceries and possibly, I will be going home to Newport News," said Norfolk State University student Jasmine Graham.

NSU decided to suspend classes and activities for Friday and Saturday but anticipate a regular schedule on Monday.
