Here's a news release from veterans affairs:
The Department of Veterans Affairs St. Petersburg Regional Office in Bay Pines has announced the closing of facilities in Florida due to Hurricane Irma
Two companies of an Army Reserve helicopter regiment stationed at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport are bugging out in advance of Hurricane Irma.
About two dozen Black Hawk helicopters and some 50 soldiers assigned to A and F Companies of the Army's 5th Battalion, 159th Aviation Regiment will be leaving because of the storm, said Army Capt. Matthew Roman, an Army Reserve Aviation spokesman.
No decision has been made yet on where the helicopters and troops will go, said Roman, who declined to say when the move will take place citing operational security concerns.
