Late today, Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic ordered all Navy installations in Hampton Roads to return to normal operations, thus setting Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness Five (V), as Hurricane Dorian no longer poses a threat to the area.

Initial damage assessments were completed and there have been no reports of damage to infrastructure, however, minor flooding occurred in areas that routinely flood. Bases will begin to support the return of Navy ships and aircraft that sortied earlier in the week beginning as early as tomorrow afternoon.

“I am very proud of the hard work and dedication of our total force – Sailors, civilians and families – who worked diligently to prepare for Hurricane Dorian in our area,” said Rear Adm. Charles Rock, Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic. “We were very fortunate the hurricane had minimal impact on Hampton Roads, but we are thinking of those who felt the strongest effects of the storm as they recover.
