Florida U.S. Navy bases prepare for the arrival of Tropical Storm Idalia


Recommended Posts

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Navy has ordered all ships and aircraft to make preparations for the arrival of Tropical Storm Idalia.

Ships will begin departures from Naval Air Station Mayport today and tomorrow or complete heavy weather mooring if required to stay in port. Aircraft will initiate evacuations from area airfields or be secured in hangars rated to withstand hurricane force winds.

Rear Adm. Jim Aiken, Commander 4th Fleet, set the ships’ sortie condition as a precautionary measure to reduce the risk of significant damage to ships, aircraft and piers during potential high winds and/or seas.
