Navy evacuation info 

The U.S. Navy has approved a liberal evacuation policy for its personnel and dependents in the Gulf Coast region, allowing them to go up to 500 miles from their homeports. Families in the local area are encouraaged to either evacuate to the Seabee base, to Tallahassee, Fla., or to a safe haven of their choice. If families choose to evacuate to Tallahassee or to another safe haven, they are to keep hotel receipts and the Navy will reimburse them at the established Tallahassee per diem rates only for hotel lodging and travel mileage. Personnel should remain in contact with their chain of command to get word as to when it is safe to return. For families in Navy housing, they are required to evacuate family housing to either the CBC shelter, Tallahassee, Florida, or a safe haven of your choice. For information regarding this policy announcement, call the NCBC Gulfport Emergency Operations Center Operator at 871-2171/72/73/74.
