Dear City College Community,

I would like to update you regarding the impact of this morning’s earthquake on City College.

As of 3:45 pm today, we were given the All-Clear by our Building Engineers for all our Centers and our Ocean Campus facilities.  All facilities are cleared for normal classroom and business operations.  In addition, all elevators at the Chinatown Center have been restored.  

Thank you for your patience as we secured the safety of our buildings.  We are committed to maintaining a safe campus environment for all our students, faculty and staff.  

I would like to extend a sincere thank you to those who responded to this event and their dedicated work.

Dear College Community:

As you know there was a 6.0 magnitude earthquake at approximately 3:20 this morning, centered in the American Canyon area of Napa County.

First of all, our primary concern is for the safety and well being of all our students and employees. I hope each of you are well and have avoided personal injury or damage to property.

I would like to update you regarding the impact of the earthquake on City College:

--As of this moment, the only known issue at any of our facilities is the disruption of elevator service at the Chinatown Center. 4 of our 5 elevators are not operable at this time. The elevator repair service has been called.

--As a result, we have cancelled our 10am and 12pm Sunday classes at Chinatown.

--As for our other facilities, our in-house engineers are in the process now of doing walk-throughs of all facilities to inspect for any damage.

--Once these inspections have been completed, we will be back in touch to provide you with additional information as well as updates about the restoration of elevator service at Chinatown Center.

Thank you for your attention. We will be back in touch soon.

Sincerely,

Virginia Parras,
President of Campus and Centers
