In case of Inclement Weather
The following radio and television stations are notified when the College is forced to close or to operate on a delayed schedule because of inclement weather.

NOTE: Separate announcements are made for day and evening classes.


Following are some suggestions for obtaining accurate information during inclement weather:

  • 1. Listen to more than one radio or television station. We strive to provide accurate up-to-date information to each station. However, mistaken information is sometimes aired. Verify the information you hear with the broadcast of another station.
  • 2. Listen to the announcements more than once. Occasionally, severe weather warrants that a decision to delay opening be changed to a decision to close.
  • 3. Call PDCCC (757.569.6700). You will reach the automated attendant. Don’t dial an extension; simply hold the line to hear the recorded information.
  • 4. Check the college’s web site. In the event of a closing or delay, an effort will be made to post this information on the college’s web site ( Student and PDCCC personnel are encouraged to utilize this option, but please be aware that technical difficulties sometimes prevent this information from being posted in a timely manner.

Remember, we do not announce via radio and television that the college is open. Announcements will be made only if the college will be closed or operating on a delayed schedule.
