DAYTON — Military planes normally stationed along the Florida coast are heading north to avoid Hurricane Ian and some of those planes are landing at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
News Center 7′s Kayla McDermott says we should be seeing more planes than usual landing at Wright-Patt throughout the day from people evacuating Florida.
If you notice more military aircraft in the sky today or in the next few days, it is just people from the southeast seeking shelter, the base said.
McDermott reports there are six Air Force bases in Florida that could be affected but two of them sit directly in the path of Ian, the base station in Miami and another in Tampa.
People in those areas who the closest to the impact zones of Hurricane Ian should begin landing at Wright Patterson Air Force Base before 1:00 p.m. today.
The arrival as well as departure times could change depending on the direction and movement Hurricane Ian ends up taking.
