Hurricane Delta Update

There has been a slight shift to the current projected track of Hurricane Delta and it is now predicted to make landfall well west of Tyndall. We continue to closely track the rapidly intensified storm, which is now a Category 4. Tyndall remains in HURCON 5.

As we know, the situation can change quickly and it is still too early to accurately determine where Hurricane Delta will make landfall or at what intensity. On that note, Team Tyndall personnel and their families should be prepared for the storm and its potential impacts to the area. You will be notified by your chain of command about installation changes. Information will also be posted on this page and at www.tyndall.af.mil/hurricane.

10/5, 11 am ET update: Tropical Storm Delta is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane as it moves into the Gulf with impacts to the northern Gulf coast possible later this week. We'll have additional updates as this evolves. #flwx #alwx #gawx

Tyndall Air Force Base

Team Tyndall,

As hurricane seasons continues, we are currently closely watching Tropical Storms Gamma and Delta. Tropical Storm Delta is currently located over the central Caribbean Sea and is forecast to become a hurricane as it moves into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico later this week. While there is large uncertainty in the track and intensity forecast at this time, there is a risk of dangerous storm surge, wind, and rainfall hazards along the coast from Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle with potential landfall Friday afternoon.

Tropical Storm Gamma is located just north of the Yucatan Peninsula and is moving south-southwest. These two storms could lead to hazardous conditions beginning later this week into early next week.

While we are not, as an installation, currently directing any evacuations, you and your family should be prepared for the storm and the potential to evacuate if needed based on conditions in your location. You will be notified by your chain of command if anything changes for the installation. Information will also be posted on this page.

As we know from previous experiences, the track and intensity of tropical systems can change rapidly. Now is the time to plan ahead. Inventory the supplies in your emergency kit and review your family’s evacuation plan to make sure you and your family are prepared for the worst. Please remember to have a plan for your pets as well. If you used any of your supplies during Hurricane Sally, don’t delay, replace them as soon as possible. Be ready, be safe!
