A MAJOR IMPACT ON ALL TENANT COMMANDS (NAVY PERSONNEL COMMAND (NPC), 
NAVY RECRUITING COMMAND (NRC), NAVY MANPOWER ANALYSIS CENTER (NAVMAC), 
BUPERS-3 AND OPNAV N135) AND FACILITIES SUPPORTED BY NSA MID-SOUTH.

2.  WATER FROM THE FLASH FLOODING ENTERED BASE HOUSING AND SEVERAL 
BUILDINGS, IMPACTING CRITICAL NPC AND NRC IT SYSTEMS.  TO LIMIT LONG-
TERM DAMAGE AND FACILITATE AN EXPEDITIOUS RESTORATION OF THESE IT 
SYSTEMS, AN ORDERLY SHUTDOWN WAS ORDERED.

3.  AS A RESULT OF THIS SHUTDOWN, NAVY MARINE CORPS INTRANET (NMCI) IS 
UNAVAILABLE FOR ALL PERSONNEL SERVED BY NSA MID-SOUTH SERVERS (NPC 
DETAILERS, NAVMAC, NRC, BUPERS-3, OPNAV N135, APPROXIMATELY 550 NMCI 
CSCS USERS IN DAHLGREN AND 100 NMCI CSF USERS IN BRUNSWICK, MAINE).

YET RETURNED TO WORK, PENDING BUILDING AVAILABILITY.  RECRUITING 
SYSTEMS ARE SECURED AND APPEAR TO BE UNDAMAGED BY FLOODING AND WILL BE 
RESTORED PENDING BUILDING/POWER ASSESSMENT.  ORDERS CANNOT BE ISSUED 
DUE TO LOSS OF NAVY MESSAGING SYSTEM.

5.  MAJOR SYSTEMS AFFECTED.  LOSS OF NMCI CONNECTIVITY WILL AFFECT THE 
ABILITY OF SAILORS TO MAINTAIN CONTACT WITH THEIR DETAILERS VIA EMAIL.
