Dayton Daily News - - BUSINESS - THOMAS GNAU

Top Air Force of­fi­cers are eval­u­at­ing the mas­sive dev­as­ta­tion Hur­ri­cane Michael wreaked this week on Tyn­dall Air Force Base, lo­cated on the Flor­ida Pan­han­dle.

Wright-Pat­ter­son Air Force Base has shel­tered mil­i­tary air­craft from the re­gion ahead of the hur­ri­cane, while Ohio Task Force 1 team de­ployed to Flor­ida this week, also be­fore the hur­ri­cane made land­fall.

Sec­re­tary of the Air Force Heather Wil­son and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Gold­fein ex­pressed con­cern about the Tyn­dall com­mu­nity fol­low­ing the hur­ri­cane, which struck the Pan­han­dle about mid-af­ter­noon Wed­nes­day.

“Tyn­dall Air Force Base sus­tained cat­a­strophic lev­els of dam­age from Hur­ri­cane Michael,” Wil­son said.
