Missouri Task Force 1 stages in Alabama ahead of Michael

Boone County-based emergency responders are standing by down south, as the Florida Panhandle gets ready for one of the worst storms in its modern history.

Hurricane Michael was a Category 4 storm, and getting stronger, as it made its way toward the northwest Florida coast early Wednesday.

Missouri Task Force 1 members were diverted from a base on the panhandle and were waiting at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama instead.

The 16 local volunteers will focus on water rescues.
