August 29, 2005 Press Release From MCLB
Albany, GA - Due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Katrina, the decision was made by Pensacola Naval Air Station (NAS) military officials to evacuate all personnel aboard the base.
Over 2,000 servicemembers to include Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force personnel residing at Pensacola were transported by bus to Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany Sunday evening.
Category 5 Hurricane Katrina, initially arrived in the lower Louisiana region Monday morning and is anticipated to cause severe damage in the four states surrounding the Gulf (including the Florida panhandle).
This contingent of evacuees from Pensacola NAS represents but a small portion of the expansive base primarily designed to train military aviators and aerial support staff. The remaining Pensacola NAS military and civilian residents have other means for evacuation procedures.
The base will accommodate these Pensacola personnel with food and shelter for the duration of the hurricane threat. The base has been used twice this hurricane season and once last year for relief shelter to safely support Pensacola personnel per a prearranged memorandum of understanding.
Because of hurricanes and other extreme acts of nature, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany is prepared to stand up a 24 hour manned facility known as the Destructive Weather Operations Center (DWOC) in the event of a weather emergency.
Currently, this action has been directed by the commanding officer of the base until further notice.
