FEMA Using Montgomery as Staging Area for Hurricane Dorian

Sep 1, 2019

 Hurricane Dorian has grown into a massive Category 5 hurricane, and it's moving toward the east coast of Florida. 

As the storm approaches the U.S. and continues to gain strength, preparations are underway ahead of its pending landfall, expected sometime Sunday or Monday.

WSFA-TV reports the Federal Emergency Management Agency is moving personnel and 18-wheelers loaded with supplies into position. One of the staging areas is Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery.

And, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she gave approval Friday for the Alabama National Guard to send up to 50 support personnel to Florida, should the need arise.
