Default Air Force Logo Hurricane Irma: Initial Information
Hurricane Irma continues its track to the Eastern United States. Recent projections show the Hurricane may directly strike the Charleston area. However, forecast projections can always change and only serve as an estimate. As we prepare for possible landfall in South Carolina, all military and DoD civilian members in the area should follow suit and have a plan ready to execute in the event we have to evacuate. There has NOT (repeat NOT) been an evacuation order as of 1800 on September 6, 2017. Personnel should wait for an evacuation order from the Joint Base Installation Commander before departing. Personnel who depart prior to the evacuation order may not be reimbursed fully for their evacuation.
