Pepperdine Monitoring Wildfire Activity 

Posted on Updated on

Pepperdine officials are monitoring wildfire activity in southern California.

The National Weather Service is using the word “extreme” to describe today’s Red Flag conditions to emphasize the importance of the warning. This means that weather conditions, including high winds with predicted gusts up to 50-70 MPH, and very low humidity, between 1-5%, pose an extreme risk of spreading any fires that ignite in the region.

Fires are not currently affecting any University campus. Campuses are open and classes are in session as regularly scheduled.

Please be advised of the following:

  • Community members whose homes are affected by the fire or road closures should follow the directions of their local governmental agencies.
  • Road condition information is available on the University’s Road Condition hotline at 310.506.ROAD (7623).
