ATTN: Impending Weather and Potential for Base Flooding

A tornado watch was issued at 12:42 and valid until 7:00 p.m today, February 6, 2020. A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for a tornado to form in the watch area. Be prepared to take cover on short notice.

Weather forecasts indicate a heavy line of precipitation currently approaching Virginia Beach at 40 MPH. Wind gust this evening will reach 50kts. Consider securing items outside work areas and home. Tie down items that could become missile hazards.

Be alert to flooded roadways. Stay alert to high water and road closures. With periods of moderate to heavy rainfall, the storm has the potential to cause localized road and parking lot flooding on NAS Oceana. Areas historically hit include the traffic circle (Hornet/Tomcat), intersection of 3rd and B, intersection of 3rd and E, intersection of F Ave and 3rd, and the housing area by the golf course.

Stay tuned for updates.

Every year, the United States recognizes February as Black History Month. The movement began in the summer of 1915 when Dr. Carter G. Woodson and thousands of other black Americans traveled from across the country to Chicago to take part in the Celebration of 50th anniversary of emancipation.

Greatly inspired by this, Woodson decided to team up with four others to form the Association of the Study of African-American Life and History (ASALH). It has been said that Woodson chose the month of February to encompass the birthdays of two great Americans, Abraham Lincoln and Fredrick Douglass. As the unofficial celebration grew every year with more and more Americans celebrating the lives and Achievements of Black Americans in U.S History, Black history lessons began being taught in schools across America.

In 1975, President Ford issued a Message of the Observance of Black History Week which would later be expanded by the ASALH to Black History Month. Every year since 1976, every president has issued proclamations advocating the Association of the Study of African American Life and History's annual theme.

This year's theme for Black History Month is "African Americans and the Vote." 2020 marks the sesquicentennial of the fifteenth amendment that gave black men the right to vote and the centennial of the nineteenth amendment that gave women the right to vote.

Happy National Hat Day!

Sailors from Naval Air Station Oceana are showing their #OceanaPride by wearing their ball caps today!

Hats have been a part of the Navy uniform since around 1866 and have since become a part of Navy tradition. As early as the 1970s, the Navy began allowing Sailors to wear baseball caps embroidered with their command logos on them, and the Navy ball cap is a seabag-issued item first received by Sailors at boot camp.
