Operating Status of the Washington National Records Center for Tuesday, August 30 and Wednesday August 31, 2011

The Washington National Records Center (WNRC) will remain closed on Tuesday, August 30 and Wednesday, August 31.  Engineers have determined that the steel frame structure of the building did not sustain any structural damage as a result of the earthquake or hurricane.  However, the building will remain closed to staff to enable clean up of fallen masonry, repairs to loose masonry, and air sampling to ensure no contaminates were caused by the damage.

A small team of WNRC staff will be on duty to service emergency reference requests for Federal agencies.

Stay tuned to this blog for updates.  We will also post to the Federal Records Centers Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NARAFRC) and Twitter feed (www.twitter.com/NARAFRC).
