The official 2020 NOAA Atlantic hurricane season outlook has been updated and is predicting what could be an extremely active season. Tropical Storm Josephine approaching the east coast is a great reminder that now is the time to prepare yourself, family and home for disasters. #PrepareNow

NOAA's Climate Prediction Center has issued its updated outlook for the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. Scientists state that the atmospheric and oceanic conditions are primed to fuel storm development in the Atlantic, leading to what could be an “extremely active” season.

The updated outlook calls for 19-25 named storms (winds of 39 mph or greater), of which 7-11 will become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or greater), including 3-6 major hurricanes (winds of 111 mph or greater). This update covers the entire six-month hurricane season, which ends Nov. 30, and includes the nine named storms to date.

Remember - the outlook is for overall seasonal activity and is not a landfall forecast. Landfalls are largely determined by short-term weather patterns, which are only predictable within about a week of a storm potentially reaching a coastline. The National Hurricane Center provides tropical weather outlooks out to five days in advance, provides track and intensity forecasts for individual storms, and issues watches and warnings for specific tropical storms, hurricanes and the associated storm surge.

20 Suffragists to Know for 2020

Visit the National Park Service website below to learn about the individuals who fought for women's suffrage. They lived across the United States, and came from around the world. Some were active in the battle for women's right to vote in the early 1800s; others worked to educate and enroll voters and for voting rights into the late 1900s and beyond.

#DYK - The Badge of Military Merit was established by Gen. George Washington #OTD in 1782. Though never abolished, the Badge of Military Merit fell into disuse soon after it was created and was restablished as the Purple Heart in 1932 by the War Department.

#WeRemember #PurpleHeartDay

#DYK - The Badge of Military Merit was established by Gen. George Washington #OTD in 1782. Though never abolished, the Badge of Military Merit fell into disuse soon after it was created and was restablished as the Purple Heart in 1932 by the War Department.

In 1942, President Roosevelt extended the Purple Heart award, which to that point was exclusively an U.S. Army award, to U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Coast Guard members serving in World War II. In 1952, President Truman retroactively awarded Purple Hearts to personnel in the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard that qualified after April 5, 1917, thus including World War I veterans of all services.

07/31/2020

As a precautionary measure, Navy installations in Hampton Roads began preparations today as Hurricane Isaias has the potential to bring high winds and rain to the Mid-Atlantic coast as early as next week.
Additionally, Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic (CNRMA) ordered Tropical Cyclone Conditions of Readiness (TCCOR) Four (IV) for Hampton Roads late yesterday. This means sustained destructive winds of greater than 50 knots associated with a tropical system are possible within 72 hours.
“Our current priority is twofold – keep our personnel and their families’ safe, and protect our Navy ships, assets and infrastructures from the storm’s potential impact as it makes its way up the coast,” said Rear Adm. Charles W. “Chip” Rock, CNRMA. “Our goal is to not only be prepared and ready, but also get back to normal operations as soon as possible to meet our ongoing mission. This takes a great team effort across the Hampton Roads area, and beyond, to ensure our goals are attained in advance of the storm.”
Some Navy installation preparations include:

• Securing hazards and buildings throughout the installations
• Protecting essential equipment
• Moving small craft to safe havens
• Topping off fuel in generators and government vehicles
• Preparing sandbags
• Designating alternate parking for flood-prone areas
• Removing debris from drainage areas
• Removing/relocating large items from the waterfront to more secure locations, such as brows and dumpsters
All personnel and their families should review their Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS) account at https://navyfamily.navy.mil, and visit the Know Your Zone website for information on whether you should evacuate in an emergency or shelter at home based on street address and the nature of the emergency event.
All personnel and their families should also visit the Ready Navy website at https://ready.navy.mil and follow Twitter (@ReadyNavy). Ready Navy provides information, tools, including building hurricane preparedness kits, and resources that empower the Navy family to more aptly prepare for, react and recover when faced with any emergency. Please note: hurricane supply items, such as cleaning supplies and paper products, may be in short supply due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Know your TCCOR and know your zone! 🗣
It's important to be prepared anytime of the year, but especially during hurricane season. As #HurricaneIsaias approaches, know what actions your installation will take during each TCCOR setting. If you are local to Hampton Roads, make sure you know your evacuation zone.
