Hurricane Florence

A tree collapsed on the Paradise Point houses during Hurricane Florence on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Sept. 15. Hurricane Florence impacted MCB Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River with periods of strong winds, heavy rains, flooding of urban and low lying areas, flash floods and coastal storm surges.

The Marine Corps has just received confirmation of our authority to reimburse service members, civil service employees and dependents who departed the area prior to, and as a result of, Hurricane Florence for the period from Sept. 15 to the date of their return or Sept. 23, whichever occurred first.

We are refining the details and processes associated with these reimbursements in order to make claim submission as efficient as possible for all those eligible.

We anticipate starting claims processing on or shortly after Monday, Oct. 22.

Contact your unit’s administrative section for details. MCCS (NAF) employees are advised to contact their HR representatives for details.
