Military Personnel Notice: Camp Lejeune & MCAS New River sets TCC IE with arrival of Hurricane Florence

CAMP LEJEUNE AND MCAS NEW RIVER, N.C. – The installation emergency operations centers have established Tropical Cyclone Condition One Emergency with the arrival of Hurricane Florence.

TCC IE is established when a destructive weather system with sustained winds of 50 knots (58 mph) or greater is currently affecting the area.

During TCC IE, all but essential operations are secured, vehicular traffic is ceased, personnel and base residents are required to remain indoors and dining facilities are closed until the passing of the storm and normal operations have resumed.

The base and air station shelters are open, and the primary shelters for Camp Lejeune & MCAS New River are as follows:

  • Wallace Creek Fitness Center, Bldg. WC-1 (Remaining Capacity: 585)
  • Tarawa Terrace II Elementary School, Bldg. TT-84 (Remaining Capacity: 372)
  • Brewster Middle School, Bldg. 833 (Remaining Capacity: 503)

The Piney Green gate has been closed until normal operations resume, and all other Camp Lejeune & MCAS New River gates will observe their normal hours of operation for the duration of the storm. However, some gate closures are expected as the effects of the storm impact the local installations. (e.g. - NCDOT will close the Sneads Ferry Bridge when sustained winds exceed a certain speed resulting in the closure of the Sneads Ferry Gate, etc.) Additional gate closures may be required as trees fall and other damage occurs during the storm. We will post any closures as soon as they are shared with us from PMO on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Personnel and residents should stay indoors and stay tuned to local media, our command social media sites or our official websites for the latest information from the command on this dynamic weather event.


Military Personnel Notice: Air Station sets Tropical Cyclone Condition One Caution as Hurricane Florence approaches NC coast

Marine Corps Air Station New River is currently in Tropical Cyclone Condition One Caution. TCC IC is established when a destructive weather system with sustained winds of 50 knots (58 mph) or greater is forecast to affect the area within 6 hours.

The air station has suspended all services except those supporting emergency operations and are encouraging all to begin to shelter in place and stay off of area roads. All military personnel are restricted to quarters or place of duty.

As of 8 a.m., the center of Hurricane Florence was located near latitude 33.1 North, longitude 75.1 West. Florence is moving slower toward the northwest at about 12 mph. This general motion, accompanied by a further decrease in forward speed, is expected to continue through today. A turn to the west-northwest and west at an even slower forward speed is expected tonight and Friday, and a slow west-southwestward motion is forecast Friday night and Saturday. It is expected that this destructive weather system will impact Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River with periods of strong winds, heavy rains, flooding of urban and low lying areas, potential flash floods and coastal storm surges are expected.

The base and air station shelters have opened, and the primary shelters for Camp Lejeune & MCAS New River, along with their remaining capacity, are as follows:

• Wallace Creek Fitness Center, Bldg. WC-1 (Remaining Capacity: 590)
• Tarawa Terrace II Elementary School, Bldg. TT-84 (Remaining Capacity: 374)

• Camp Lejeune Pet-Friendly Shelter, Bldg. FC-565 (Remaining Capacity: 129) 

If these shelters reach their capacity, other shelters will be made available. 

If you plan on seeking shelter at any of these locations, our shelters have generator power for lighting, but not necessarily air conditioning so you may be warm and uncomfortable, but safe. You will be with total strangers in close quarters under less than ideal conditions. There are rules and quiet hours in shelters. You will be required to supervise your children and are responsible for their behavior. There will be a Corpsman on hand for minor issues, but no doctors. Please note that the Camp Lejeune shelters are NOT set up to feed anyone the first 72 hours, but the MCAS New River shelters can provide Meals, Ready-To-Eat (MREs) at an additional cost. Additionally, please ensure you bring the following with you to these shelters: 

• Nonperishable food and water for each family member to last 3 days
• Medications
• Diapers/pullups/formula/baby treats
• A special item that will help a child through a trying time
• Pillow/blanket/sleeping bag if you like
• Games/books/magazines
• Flashlight/small portable radio/extra batteries
• Toiletries/change of clothes 

Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune has established a storm shelter for expectant mothers, who are 37+ weeks or further along in their pregnancy or classified as a very high risk pregnancy, and their families.

The commanding general has directed that a pet friendly emergency shelter be established for authorized personnel to seek refuge during Hurricane Florence. Building FC-565 has been designated as the shelter location, and ONLY domestic dogs and cat breeds will be accepted. Owners must remain in the shelter with their pet and provide kennel, food, water, and bowls for them. Pets must be on a leash or in a kennel at all times, and vaccination records are required. Owners should also ensure you bring the following items for you and any family members that may shelter with you and your pet(s): 

• Nonperishable food and water for each family member to last 3 days
• Medications
• Diapers/pullups/formula/baby treats
• A special item that will help a child through a trying time
• Pillow/blanket/sleeping bag if you like
• Games/books/magazines
• Flashlight/small portable radio/extra batteries
• Toiletries/change of clothes

The shelter is open, and space is available on a first come, first serve basis until capacity is reached. 

Owners should check in at the duty hut located on the first floor in the center of the building.

Bldg. FC-565 is located in French Creek on Reasoner Street between Buildings FC-500 and FC-560. 

All Camp Lejeune & MCAS New River gates will observe their normal hours of operation for the duration of the storm, but some gate closures are expected as the effects of the storm impact the local installations. (e.g. - NCDOT will close the Sneads Ferry Bridge when sustained winds exceed a certain speed resulting in the closure of the Sneads Ferry Gate, etc.) Additional gate and road closures may be required as trees fall and other damage occurs during the storm. We will post any closures as soon as they are shared with us from PMO on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Air station residents should stay indoors and stay tuned to local media, our command social media sites or our official websites for the latest information from the command.

An elevation of the air station's posture to TCC IE is expected later today, and it is expected that we will remain in TCC IE potentially until mid-day Saturday as the storm slows down and moves over the area.

MCAS New River Station personnel and Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron personnel may also contact the Personnel Accountability Crisis Action Team at (910) 449-5462 as a final measure to account for yourself and dependents. Be advised that this number will only be staffed after the "all clear" signal has been given.
