Several local media outlets have reported that students at CCSU are being asked to stay inside due to a campus emergency.
The CCSU website homepage is a warning in red text saying: "Central Connecticut State University - Campus Emergency. Get inside buildings & Stay in place! Stay away from Windows. Police Are on the Scene."

C'mon...there's gotta be one. Two? A dozen? Close to a hundred? How else to while away the hours, days, for some WEEKS, beginning a year ago today, when Hurricane Sandy pounded on the East Coast, so much so it dumped a roller coaster into New Jersey's waters? Many sat with lights out, food on ice in coolers, fires burning in fireplaces, huddled under blankets; those with portable radios calling in while I handled on-air duties for both The Mighty 960 and our sister station KC101 (my former stomping grounds), senses of humor in tact, no branches on the roof, no injuries to report. Grateful to be alive, hearing about folks who were watching their homes float away - some even sitting on the roof of their home awaiting help - it had to be difficult not to roll around on the carpe diem. How many people held each other close, so close that nine months later, well, there was a little girl who needed a name?
What the one-two punch that was Irene and Sandy taught us all, far more than how resilient we as East Coasters are, is that every day - nay, minute - is precious and not to take 'em for granted. It's pretty easy to do with minutes, I'll admit...but a day? Surely we can appreciate each of them.

At a news conference in Hartford Monday, Oct. 21, seven current and former UConn students filed a complaint against the university, alleging they were victims of sexual assault on campus. Read the story here: http://bit.ly/19Yxi3N
The Title IX complaint sets forth details of rapes, sexual assaults and sexual batteries - horrific stories that would make any father clench his fists and demand justice, especially considering he, in many cases, is paying a hefty sum for tuition that is also supposed to include security for his little girl.
UConn has been plagued with stories of sexual assault for years now, with one anonymous former rape crisis center volunteer saying on record that there were several assaults per week reported when she worked there.
Smoke, fire and all that, right? Now, cut back to the news conference and have said father(s) in attendance, fists still clenched, and the Governor saying, "The reality is that we are safer in Connecticut since I became the Governor." Mr. Early release himself!
Do YOU think CT is safer since Malloy took office?
