Operating Status of the Washington National Records Center for Friday, August 26 and Monday, August 29, 2011

As discussed in today’s NARA Press Release, the Washington National Records Center in Suitland, Maryland will remain closed today and again on Monday, August 29th because of damage from Tuesday’s earthquake.

As we state in the NARA Press Release, during the closure, a small team of National Archives staff members are on-site to coordinate the response, prepare for potential complications from Hurricane Irene, and to service a limited number of emergency requests from federal agencies.

Like we have all week, we will share more specific information on the building status with our agency customers through our various communications channels as it becomes available.
