    TS Harvey: Announcement regarding campus coming Tuesday

    Tropical Storm Harvey is predicted to make landfall again somewhere near the Port Arthur-Beaumont region. The storm could bring additional heavy rains and high winds, increasing the chances of more flooded roadways across the region.

    Lamar State College Port Arthur canceled classes Monday, August 28, and Tuesday, August 29. Faculty and non-essential staff should not report to work Monday and Tuesday.

    LSCPA officials are closely monitoring hourly updates on the storm and a decision will be made Tuesday regarding the remainder of the week as TS Harvey's path becomes more evident.

    Any additional information regarding the campus will be immediately distributed to the public via the College’s website, (, its Facebook page (, Twitter (#LSCPortArthur), and local media outlets. An email and text message will also be sent to the LSCPA student body, faculty and staff.
