National Guard Deployed For Hurricane Irma

Over 2,500 members of the Wisconsin National Guard will help with the massive recovery efforts in Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.  The Wisconsin Guard’s mission is expected to include rescuing people who were trapped by rising floodwaters, preventing more injuries and protecting property left vulnerable by residents who fled the approaching storm.  Irma has been one of the strongest Atlantic Ocean storms since record-keeping began.
