Question by Ray: Is it weird my governor declared a state emergency and my college is still open?
The governor of my state declared a state emergency because of Hurricane Sandy arriving tomorrow and my college classes are still in session. Isn’t that weird? I thought schools cancelled automatically after a state emergency?

Declaring a state of emergency is not the same as evacuation notices. Declaring a state of emergency means the Governor may personally take direct operational control of any or all parts of the civil preparedness forces and functions in the state.
