INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Sixteen members of Indiana Task Force 1 will head south on Tuesday to help victims of Hurricane Michael.

The unit was activated Monday evening, but it was not known exactly where they would be heading. The storm is headed toward the Alabama and Florida coastlines in the Gulf of Mexico.


The 16 members of Indiana Task Force 1 that will head to the Gulf are part of a water rescue team.

The task force was dispatched to North Carolina last month to aid in the emergency effort in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

The team will leave Indianapolis Tuesday morning.
