At 3:20AM (PST) on Sunday morning, August 24 Northern California was hit by a 6.0 earthquake with an epicenter near Touro University California (TUC). Thank God, there were no injuries or fatalities on campus. Although there was isolated damage to some campus buildings and facilities, operations at TUC are continuing normally thanks to the readiness and quick action of campus security and facilities management. I would like to express my congratulations to the leadership of TUC for not only their effective response but for their extraordinary preparatory work to protect against crisis situations. You have my deep-felt appreciation for your diligence, dedication and exemplary performance in the aftermath of this event.
