At 10 p.m. Sept. 27, NAS Key West emergency responders evacuated 61 residents from base housing to Navy Gateway Inn & Suites after a higher-than-forecast storm surge unexpectedly flooded homes on the Truman Annex. Navy Federal Firefighters and first responders assisted with the evacuation.
Capt. Elizabeth Regoli, commanding officer of NAS Key West, later issued a mandatory evacuation for low-lying areas in Sigsbee Park housing due to high tide and storm surge anticipated today between 12-4 p.m. on the Gulf side of the installation. Emergency accommodations will be available for displaced residents at Fly Navy-Navy Gateway Inns & Suites
For Navy personnel residing off installation, follow the Monroe County Emergency Management website for information about shelters nearest you.
“The safety of our Navy personnel and their families is my top priority,” said Regoli. “We will continue to direct all resources possible towards the safe relocation and emergency assistance for those displaced by Hurricane Ian.”
Navy personnel and families are encouraged to check their Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS) account (https://navyfamily.navy.mil) to ensure it is up-to-date.
