Navy: Diver in scuba gear spotted off largest base
Officials say a scuba diver appears to have breached a barrier at the country’s largest naval base and they have stepped up security as a result.
Navy spokeswoman Kelly Wirfel said several sailors on watch at Naval Station Norfolk briefly saw the person Monday in the water near the secured piers.
A security gate sits in the water surrounding the base and its 14 piers. Ms. Wirfel said security teams were looking for the person while restricting access to and from the piers.
