Published August 23, 2020

The Air Force Reserve’s 403rd Wing relocated its 20 aircraft today as Hurricane Marco and Tropical Storm Laura make their way toward the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The wing’s 815th Airlift Squadron, a tactical airlift unit,
flew their C-130J Super Hercules to Joint Base San Antonio, Texas,
and the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, or Hurricane Hunters,
relocated their WC-130Js and operations to Atlantic Aviation Charleston International Airport, South Carolina,
where they will continue to fly both storms
and provide weather information to the National Hurricane Center, which greatly improves their intensity and track forecasts.

Marco became a hurricane today and is forecasted to make landfall on the Louisiana coast Monday, and Tropical Storm Laura could also become a hurricane and impact the Gulf Coast by Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.
