Hurricane Ian Clean Up Team


DEOMI Recon Team Responds in Wake of Hurricane Ian

PATRICK SPACE FORCE BASE, Fla. —  
The Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute sent a recon team on Friday to assess the institute for possible damages caused by Hurricane Ian.  Ian, a near Category 5 hurricane at landfall, was downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it arrived on Patrick SFB.  

Ian passed over the base early morning Thursday with surface winds more than 50 knots (58 mph). The base was placed on HURCON 1 status, which restricted access to only those who have been authorized or are assigned to a hurricane recovery team, to minimize the hazards associated with Ian. In addition to high winds, these hazards included storm surges, heavy rain, flooding, and tornadoes or waterspouts—all of which residents in the area experienced.
