Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., has moved aircraft to other military installations and has recommended staff don’t come to work in anticipation of storms expected to batter the state, Air Force Times reported.
A base spokesman said the planes were moved to other bases over the weekend, but declined to discuss specifics of the aircrafts’ movements.
The base outside Oklahoma City remains open, but nonessential staff were advised to stay home Monday as the area prepared for storm forecasts that include hail, flooding and wind gusts of up to 80 mph.
