Task Force 1 ready for the worst on the Gulf Coast

Boone County-based emergency responders are standing by down south, as the Florida Panhandle gets ready for one of the worst storms in its modern history. Hurricane Michael was a Category 4 storm, and getting stronger, as it made its way toward the northwest Florida coast this (wed) morning. Missouri Task Force 1 members were diverted from a base on the panhandle, and will wait at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama instead. The 16 local volunteers will focus on water rescues.
