NC – NEW RIVER – CAMP LEJEUNE – POSSIBLE HAZARDS TO NAVIGATION
Mariners traveling on the western side of the New River between Stone Bay and Farnell Bay should be aware that there are numerous sign poles without working lights and are leaning or submerged as a result of Hurricane Florence and present hazards to navigation. These poles once had signs denoting areas of caution around the Stone Bay Rifle Range and Verona Loop Firing Ranges. Signs are located along the Stone Bay, Grey Point and Farnell Bay sectors of the New River. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is working to replace these signs.
