An evacuation order for Team Charleston personnel and their families has NOT been given at this time. Under HURCON 3, JB Charleston will continue to secure property that may be exposed to storm conditions.

The 628th Medical Group and Naval Health Clinic Charleston will close at noon tomorrow, and remain closed on Friday. The Child Development Centers and Youth Centers will also be closed on Friday.
