Rubio Comments on Hurricane Hunters’ Relocation to Lakeland

Nov 30, 2016 | Press Releases

Washington. D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) decision to relocate its Aircraft Operations Center (also known as the “Hurricane Hunters”) to Lakeland Linder Regional Airport:

“Although I’m disappointed the Hurricane Hunters fleet will be leaving MacDill, I’m pleased it will be staying in Florida and the disruption to crew members and their families will be relatively minimal. The Hurricane Hunters play a critical role in getting the best information possible to help people prepare for hurricanes and tropical storms. Their work has literally saved lives, and I thank the crew for their ongoing commitment and service to our country.”

In April, Rubio urged the federal government to keep the fleet in the Tampa region.
