VandyBrad, Gainesville is likely to see quite a bit of rain from this storm, perhaps up to 5-7 inches (depending on how much has already been received). Wind gusts may briefly get to tropical storm force, but that is just in gusts and sustained winds are more likely in the 20s. If you feel that there may be something worth going in and taking precautions for, it's better to play it safe than sorry, but I do not believe that there will be a lot of damage...particularly considering the good quality of most of the buildings at UF. It'll largely be like Florida's afternoon thunderstorms, just over a longer period of time and with a bit more rain.
