  • Setting Up for Success in One Day: A Hurricane Irma Story

    Hurricane Irma had made landfall on Florida. And for the past two days, the storm was snaking its way up the Florida peninsula. Irma's initial contact with Florida was as a category five hurricane with sustained winds as fast as 185 mph. Irma's ascent inland was approaching the northern panhandle of Florida where the 129th Rescue Wing aircraft and personnel had been pre-staged for relief operations since September 9th.
