A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties through 4am Friday. Light freezing rain and sleet will be possible.
Before classes start Tuesday, East Carolina University will be testing its emergency notification system.
The testing will begin 9 a.m. Friday.
Students and staff should expect to see the alert on items such as the ECU homepage, the TV screens on campus, and their cell phones.
ECU affiliated people will receive a text message regarding the alert only if they registered for them. Otherwise, they will receive a voice message.
While walking throughout campus, people will hear loudspeakers notifying them about the alert.
The testing will also run through Friday afternoon and Saturday.
