Nebraska National Guard Deploying Task Force To Florida For Irma Recovery

Officials say 100 Nebraska Army National Guard soldiers are being deployed to Florida for post-Hurricane Irma missions.

The 80-member Nebraska Task Force 1 already has arrived in northern Florida to perform aid and rescue work just days after helping people survive Hurricane Harvey in Texas, according to officials. 

The responding unit is made up of mostly firefighters from Lincoln, Omaha and Papillion.

The weakened hurricane pushed inland Monday, hammering Florida with winds and floodwaters.

The Guardsmen will be operating its four UH-72 Lakota helicopters
