Moody prepares for Hurricane Michael

MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- In anticipation of Hurricane Michael, currently a Category 1 hurricane, Moody Air Force Base is making preparations to relocate some of its aircraft as well as prepare the base for the incoming storm.

While it is expected to be a Category 3 upon landfall, the current forecast still anticipates Moody and the surrounding area only facing tropical-storm-force winds Wednesday morning. At this time no changes have been made to adjust operating hours for base personnel or facilities. For the most up-to-date information, Moody members and their families are advised to continue monitoring local radio, TV and social media news sources in their specific areas.

“Our people’s safety is the top priority; we will also be taking the necessary steps to protect our combat assets,” said Col. Jennifer Short, 23d Wing commander.

Base leadership encourages everyone to monitor the weather in the coming days and to be prepared. Further updates will be made as they become available.
