As Tropical Storm Isaac barrels across the Gulf of Mexico and potentially becoming a hurricane soon, some VA operations on the coast may change depending on your location.

If you live in an area under the threat of storm damage and have pending VA appointments, be sure to contact your VA facility to inquire about their operational schedule. Some appointments may be rescheduled or canceled, and some facilities may be closed entirely until it’s safe to resume normal duties.

You can also follow your local facilities on Facebook and Twitter for updates on closures and appointment cancellations.

This is a good time for hurricane preparedness if you haven’t started already. The National Weather Service has some helpful tips, along with a collection of additional resources.

If you’re in an affected area, keep tabs on the storm here.

Above all, be safe, and make sure your family does the same.
