UPEI has delayed opening until noon with a further update at 10:30 a.m.
The delay means exams scheduled for 9 a.m. will have to be rescheduled for a later date.
Holland College is also delaying opening until noon with a further update at 10:30 a.m.
All ferry sailings between Wood Islands and Caribou have also been cancelled until further notice.
