NAS Pensacola preps
Updated: Tuesday, June 4 2013, 12:45 PM CDT
There are 23,000 people aboard NAS Pensacola.
So getting everyone ready for a storm can be a big challenge.
Hurricane Ivan ripped through NAS Pensacola in September 2004 causing millions of dollars in damage. Nearly 90 percent of the buildings on the base suffered significant damage.
And with more than 100 planes on base, NAS would never risk leaving them there. So, during a hurricane some jets will be put in hangars, others flown to different bases across the country. NAS could move its students to a Marine Corps logistics base in Albany, Georgia.
