    Now is a great time to check your information in SOS 

    The official start of the 2018 hurricane season is Friday, June 1. However, as you are aware, the first sub-tropical storm of the season, Alberto, formed last week with minimal impact to the Gulf Coast. The National Weather Service Houston / Galveston has issued its 2018 Hurricane Guide, which is a great resource to have on hand.

    Now is also a good time to log in to SOS and sign up or review your contact information for SJC AlertMe. This system will automatically send an email to your San Jacinto College email in the event of a College emergency such as severe weather. You must opt-in via SOS to receive voice and text messages. You will automatically receive an email to your San Jacinto College email account.

    You are encouraged to prepare yourself and your family now for the upcoming hurricane season. In addition to the hurricane guide referenced above, the National Hurricane Center website offers preparation tips and additional information.
