Naval Station Norfolk Locks Down Piers

Norfolk, Va. — Naval Station Norfolk’s piers and ships are on lockdown after reports this morning of a possible diver in the water. “At 9 a.m. this morning a shipboard watch stander reported a possible diver in the water,” said Kelly Wirfel, spokeswoman for Naval Station Norfolk. “That sighting was confirmed by multiple other watch standers and the situation is still under investigation.” Wirfel said the Navy Criminal Investigation Service, Navy explosive ordnance disposal, Naval Station Norfolk base security and fire departments are still on scene investigating. “All piers remain on lockdown and ships are in a security alert status,” she said. The base itself is not locked down, only the piers, she said. It remains unclear when the lockdown will be lifted. Stay tuned to Navy times for further information as it becomes available.
