Swimmer Missing because of Strong Florida Rip Currents
By Veronica Perez posted Aug 29, 2010 at 10:10 PM

 

WVUM
If you frequent the WVUM office, you have surely heard a loud honk when the weather becomes cloudy. This is not a new style in music that “the Voice” is promoting—instead the noise comes from the UM swimming pool across from the office. That honk is an alarm that lets students know that there is a risk of lighting, and that they must evacuate the pool. This is the sort of precaution that keeps swimmers safe during storms, and during hurricane season all precautions should be taken.

This Saturday, August 28th , a group of four swimmers in Ocean City, Maryland,  showed signs of distress and three were rescued by officials. Now a search is on to find the fourth swimmer, who is believed to have been carried by strong rip currents. The local officials are still looking for the swimmer. These dangerous rip tides are caused by Hurricane Danielle. Off the east coast of the country, Danielle is affecting swimmers and surfers alike in the Maryland beach areas. 250 surf rescues were made in Ocean City on Saturday alone, due to the storm.

Danielle’s effects are also being felt on Florida’s beaches. In Brevard county, 30 rescues were made because of dangerous rip currents. There are reports all along Florida’s coast of similar stories.  Beach patrol officials are advising that swimmers stay close to life guard stations, and that they avoid swimming past 6 p.m.

WVUM would like to remind you to always take precaution when there is a storm near the coast, to be alert of all the safety signs posted on the beach, and to always stay out of the water when you hear the honk. Remember, you can’t keep it locked if you’re drowning!

Hurricane Preparedness and U
By Amber Robertson posted Aug 29, 2010 at 11:45 AM

 

WVUM listeners can be found all over the world, but the majority can be found right here in south Florida. While living in paradise has its obvious perks, it also means that there is a risk of hurricanes for 6 months out of the year. Hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th, and in an effort to keep listeners prepared and informed, WVUM is kicking off the fall semester week with a focus on Hurricane preparedness.

WVUM

Keep any ear out for an interview with Gilbert Arias, the Vice President of Student affairs at the University of Miami. He gave us some enlightening tips about staying safe before, during, and after a storm. Arias stressed the importance of being prepared at the beginning of hurricane season. This includes having all of the supplies that you might need, and having a plan of action during the storm. For this reason, WVUM has prepared a downloadable checklist that condenses all the information into one easy document. Stay safe this hurricane season, and as always, keep it locked!

REMINDERS FOR STUDENTS:
1. Update MyUm storm preferences. On the MyUM homepage, locate the “Personal and Biographical Info” section in the right-hand column.

Faux Pas Interview
By Laura (of Miami) Sutnick posted Aug 24, 2010 at 10:44 AM

 

Faux Pas is one of our MEDIUM ROTATION artists, which means their music gets played pretty frequently on air. Check out the interview on the NIGHTDRIVE blog:

I’ve been chatting with Tim from Faux Pas (Australia) for the last few weeks via email and we’ve finally conjured up an interview for you guys. He initially approached me about submitting his music to college radio, but to his surprise we already had his stuff in the WVUM 90.5 FM library (keep it locked! wink ). Some call his style dream pop and others say it’s more on the disco side. I say let’s not put him in a box. Here’s my favorite press quote about him:

“Impressive elastic strands of plaited sense associations; extract of flashy disco, pastoral swoon and computer exploration.” – threethousand
