Title: Status of NuMI experiments: MINOS+ and NO$$\nu$$A

The NuMI beam at Fermilab has been upgraded and is now capable of producing a 700 kW neutrino beam. Two major long-baseline neutrino experiments, MINOS+ and NOνA, have started data collection in the new NuMI configuration. This paper describes the latest developments of MINOS+ and NOνA. MINOS+ constitutes a new phase of the MINOS experiment and will provide improved sensitivity to new physics phenomena with a higher energy beam. NOνA will take advantage of its off-axis position to deliver precise measurements of
