A convoy of Federal Emergency Management Agency trucks loaded with relief supplies rolled out of Montgomery today, headed to Florida to assist victims of Hurricane Irma.
More than 800 FEMA tractor trailers left Maxwell Air Force Base this morning headed to Florida. Drivers in Montgomery were alerted this morning that the trucks could cause major delays as they left via Highway 31 South before making their way onto I-65 South.
The trucks have been staging at Maxwell since this weekend awaiting deployment to Georgia and Florida. The trucks contain supplies such as water, food, generators and cots.
As many as 5 million meals, 100,000 tarps, more than 2 million liters of water, 47,000 blankets and 19,000 cots were included in the supplies managed by a FEMA Incident Management Assistance Team deployed to Alabama.
