MILITARY PERSONNEL NOTICE: As of 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 2, the MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ commanding general has established Tropical Cyclone Condition 2 (TCC II) in preparation for any potential impacts from Tropical Storm Isaias. TCC II is established when a destructive weather system with sustained winds of 50 knots (58 mph) or greater is forecast to affect the area within 24 hours.
At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Isaias was located by NOAA Doppler weather radars near latitude 26.9 North, longitude 79.6 West. Isaias is moving toward the north-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday morning. A turn toward the north and north-northeast is anticipated on Monday and Tuesday with an increase in forward speed. On the forecast track, the center of Isaias will move near the east coast of Florida today through late tonight. On Monday and Tuesday, the center of Isaias will move from offshore the coast of Georgia into the mid-Atlantic states.
All Camp Lejeune interests should monitor the NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center forecast throughout the weekend and consider possible impacts.
As of 12:00 p.m., August 1, MCB Camp Lejeune is in Tropical Cyclone Condition 3 (TCC-III).
As of 9:00 a.m., July 31, MCB Camp Lejeune is in Tropical Cyclone Condition 4 (TCC-IV).
Part of your hurricane preparations should include knowing where you will shelter in case of a destructive weather event that impacts our community. It is important to note that due to the Coronavirus pandemic, personnel should seek shelter with family, friends or in a hotel before choosing a shelter site on base or in the community as space will be limited. The Wallace Creek Fitness Center on Camp Lejeune is the only shelter on base that will accommodate families, pets (cats and dogs only) and personnel with COVID-19 symptoms and/or placed in restriction of movement (ROM). Those personnel with COVID-19 symptoms and/or placed in ROM will be separated from the general population. (U.S. Marine Corps video by Cpl. Stephanie Coronamorales)
