As Hurricane Florence moves full steam ahead toward the East Coast, its all hands on desk and Nebraska's Task Force One has been activated.
It tweeted early this morning that it is en route to the areas ahead of landfall to gear up for any response as needed once the storm hits.
NE-TF1 has been activated as a Type 3 task force and is in route prior to Florence making landfall. https://t.co/2QZhEZJIOr
