MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (AP) - Six airmen skilled in securing and re-establishing cellphone and satellite communications are on their way to help with Tropical Storm Harvey recovery in the Houston area.

The Wolf administration said Tuesday the members of the 193rd Special Operations Wing departed on a C-130 transport plane for Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio.

They’re based at Harrisburg International Airport in Middletown, Pennsylvania.

Officials say they don’t know how long the team will be helping out in Texas after being activated by the National Guard Bureau.
