Quantico Marine Corps base was hit hard by the storm, which came through about 3 a.m. Base officials reported a number of large trees down and much of base housing without power this morning.

The westside of the base appears to be unaffected. Thomason, Lyman, Waller Hill, Neville Heights do not have power. Geiger and Masters Hill have power.

Non-emergency/non-essential workers at Quantico Marine Corps based are asked not report to work until noon to give repair crews time to work.

The Washington area is once again under a heat advisory today, from noon to 8 p.m. Temperatures are expected to range from 95 to 100 degrees, with heat index values of 100 to 105.

Unfouling the halyard

MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. — When halyard at the top of the flagpole in front of Lejeune Hall became fouled on Monday, the Quantico Fire Department was called in to assist, given that they are the only unit on base with a ladder tall enough to reach the top. Kevin Fines, of Facilities Maintenance, volunteered to climb the 100-foot ladder to repair the pole and gave a wave before heading back down.
