I was awakened at 6:00am when my cell phone rang.
It was the Pepperdine Emergency Notification system with a message from 5:41am (dude, why does it take 20 minutes for me to get my notification!??!!?) saying that on-campus residents of Pepperdine’s Drescher and Malibu campuses were being asked to evacuate to the Tyler Campus Center due to a brush fire in the Corral Canyon.
The website is not updated yet, but emergency information is available at http://emergency.pepperdine.edu/
UPDATE @ 9:00AM: Pepperdine Responds to Corral Canyon Fire
