FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE: At 5:00 p.m. [EDT], the center of Tropical Storm Colin was located near latitude 28.8 North, longitude 85.5 West. Colin is moving toward the north-northeast near 23 mph. A northeastward motion at a faster forward speed is expected tonight and Tuesday. On this track, the center of Colin is forecast to move onshore of the Florida Big Bend area this evening, then move across northern Florida and southeastern Georgia through early Tuesday morning, and move near or over the southeastern coast of the United States Tuesday. However, it's important to note that the strongest winds and heaviest rains are well removed from the center. Some strengthening is forecast on Tuesday and Tuesday night, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles to the southeast of the center.

New gate schedules to take effect this summer
————————————————————
By Lance Cpl. Sean J. Berry, MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River Public Affairs

Beginning July 5, new gate schedules will begin to take effect on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River to improve security.

"This is a relatively new concept," said Capt. Adam McKillop, operations officer with the Provost Marshal’s Office. "We’ve been at force protection Bravo for a year and a half and with that, we’ve decided to take another look at ways we can best provide security to the installation."

Changes include adjustments to the operating schedule for the Piney Green and Douglass gates. Both gates will open at 5:30 a.m. weekdays with the inbound lanes closing at 5 p.m. and the outbound lanes closing at 6 p.m.

"Based on some traffic analysis at the gates," said McKillop. "We’ve looked at closing some gates at non peak hours and keeping certain gates open to limit any security vulnerabilities of the installation."

The Tarawa Terrace II gate will also run from 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekdays and air station’s back gate will close after peak hours.
"This will significantly increase the security that the Provost Marshal’s Office can provide," said McKillop.

The Wilson Boulevard gate will continue to maintain their current hours of operation from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily and smaller changes to schedules will take effect throughout the year based off of construction around the installation.

"We’re looking forward to the changes and appreciate the public’s patience as we transition through this," said McKillop. "Security is not just something that PMO can do; it’s everyone’s responsibly to identify these issues so we can help."
