The installation will be open tomorrow, Oct. 11. Civilian and military personnel should contact their supervisor or chain of command for specific unit duty reporting instructions.

Forecasters are monitoring the potential impacts of Hurricane Michael across South Carolina, including Joint Base Charleston for tomorrow, Oct. 11.
As poor as conditions will be today, they will steadily worsen tonight as Hurricane Michael draws into closer proximity of the area. The National Weather Service anticipates tropical storm conditions will overspread the forecast zones from southwest to northeast depending on how quickly Hurricane Michael diminishes in strength from a hurricane to a tropical storm.
JB Charleston officials are working closely with local emergency preparedness officials and are receiving regular updates about the weather from the National Weather Service.
As safety and security is our number one priority, officials will continue to monitor the storm to determine the potential impact on the installation.
The 628th Medical Group and Naval Health Clinic Charleston will be open. The Exchanges and Commissaries will be open. The Child Development Centers and Youth Center will be open. The Weapons Station Galley and Air Base Flight Kitchen will open for normal operations.
