Major Flooding

Major flooding on the campus would be the result of torrential rains, a water main failure, or from frozen pipes.

Minor Flooding

Minor or area flooding of the campus is a more likely scenario. This could be the result of multiple rainstorms or a water line break.

In the case of minor, weather related flooding, the MIT Emergency Management will monitor the National Weather Service and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) to determine necessary action, such as evacuation of areas and cancellation of classes.
