    UPDATE WEDNESDAY 10 P.M.

    Mercer University has cancelled all classes Thursday due to Hurricane Michael.

    "After evaluating the latest forecasts and in response to local government’s request to stay off roads so crews can clean up damage from the storm that is passing through this evening, a decision has been made to cancel all Thursday classes in Macon, Savannah and Columbus and close University offices in those locations to facilitate clean-up efforts."

    However, Mercer says Classes on the Atlanta campus and at the Henry County and Douglas County Regional Academic Centers -- as well as University offices in those locations -- will follow normal schedules on Thursday.
