THIS IS THE LATEST INFORMATION
PERTAINING TO OUR REUNION
Dear Wisconsin shipmates and families,
We wanted to assure everyone that plans are still on for the reunion next week in Norfolk, VA. Today’s Hurricane Florence forecast is good news for Southeastern Virginia and the Norfolk/Tidewater area. We are expecting only moderate flood levels on Friday and into Saturday, tropical storm force or less for winds, and less than 5” of rain from the storm. By Sunday the worst should be past for flooding, wind and rain. Barring an unexpected hard right turn in the next 24 hours, Norfolk and the surrounding area will be spared from much of Hurricane Florence.
Out of caution, Nauticus and the Battleship Wisconsin have been closed for the remainder of THIS week so that they may be as prepared as possible for the impending weather. They anticipate re-opening on Monday, Sept 17. The Sheraton will remain open and is operating business as usual.
On Monday, Sept 17 we will assess the effects of the storm and will immediately communicate if anything has significantly changed.
Please do continue to plan on attending the reunion – it is going to prove to be another fantastic event with over 200 shipmates, family and friends!!
