Florida Air Force base suffers "widespread catastrophic damage" from Michael
Tyndall Air Force Base in Panama City, Florida, suffered "widespread catastrophic damage" from Hurricane Michael, officials said Thursday. The base is closed indefinitely while the damage is being assessed.
"At this point Tyndall residents and evacuated personnel should remain at their safe location," said Col. Brian Laidlaw, 325th Fighter Wing commander. "We are actively developing plans to reunite families and plan to provide safe passage back to base housing."
Tyndall said roofs were ripped from buildings and there was significant structural damage.
