Due to Hurricane Irma, TCA New London will be evacuating the Academy on
Saturday, 09 September at 12 Noon.  Cadets will return Thursday, 14 September 2-4pm.

Message from Secretary Hooks regarding Hurricane Irma preparations—

  Governor Cooper has declared a State of Emergency for the entire State of North Carolina in preparation for Hurricane       Irma which is currently expected to impact North Carolina the first of next week.  It is still too early to tell exactly what         impact or the areas of the state that will be impacted the most so it is imperative that everyone complete their                       emergency preparation and planning this weekend.  NC Emergency Management has provided the following website for     all citizens of North Carolina to assist with planning and preparing for an emergency such as a major hurricane.  Please       visit https://readync.org/EN/index.html and share this information with family and friends.  You may also download the       ReadyNC app to your iPhone or Android devices. Pay attention to local emergency announcements and local forecasts.

  Make a plan. Discuss your plan with family and neighbors. Get supplies ready this weekend.
