8/27/2012 - Darlene Gnuschke, Air Force retired and Biloxi resident, receives help from Maria Ainaga, head bagger at the base commissary with loading cases of water and other hurricane supplies into her trunk Aug. 27, 2012, at Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. Keesler personnel are taking preventative measures to prepare and protect themselves and Keesler's assets as the base commander has declared HURCON 3, meaning destructive winds of 58 mph or greater are expected as Hurricane Isaac approaches.

I still have many fond memories from my time stationed at Keesler while in the USAF 67-71. Sure hope all are out of harm's way and the base sustains no damage. Take care everyone...Joe

I am worried about the hurricane passing through Biloxy specially the waves. The base is too close to the beach and the national weather service is expecting over 6 foot waves and the sea getting on parts of the city. You should concider moving the staff farther away from the sea. The wind might not be so much problem as the hurricane moving too slow.
