NOAA in Newport

OPB | July 5, 2011 9:20 a.m. | Updated: Sept. 10, 2013 10:18 p.m.

As of July 1st, Newport is officially home to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Pacific Fleet. Two years ago, the competition for where NOAAs ships would be based was fierce — the fact that Newport won out over bigger cities was something of a coup. Now that operations are beginning, we want to know, how is that affecting people in Newport — from residents to scientists to business owners?

Do you live or work in Newport? Are you a scientist at the Hatfield Marine Science Center? What difference will having the fleet in town make to you?
