In case you haven’t heard, Naval Station Norfolk has locked
down ships and piers after several lookouts on watch spotted a
possible diver in the water. NCIS, EOD (explosive ordinance
disposal), security, and fire departments are on scene.
The base is not on lock down, just the piers and ships. We hope
everyone remains calm. News came out about an hour ago and
hard telling how the lock down will last.
We had a few of these when I was in dungarees and it usually
turned out to be nothing and we hope that is the case here. It
does make for tense moments for all involved. Especially on the
ships with munitions loaded and ready to go to sea.
