Ryan Gorman and Tampa Bay Times Military Reporter Howard Altman discuss the impact Hurricane Michael had on Tyndall Air Force Base and how a team from MacDill is assisting officials in the Florida Panhandle.
- It is unknown how many aircrafts are operational at the base and how many were left behind.
- Hurricane Michael popped up so quickly that you couldn't get the aircrafts moved quickly enough.
