Selfridge Air National Guard Base are letting residents know there could be increased air traffic as the military prepares for Hurricane Michael in the Gulf of Mexico.

According to the air base, the 127th Wing and Selfridge are preparing to receive numerous aircraft, as early as Wednesday evening, as military installations in the Florida panhandle evacuate ahead of Michael's landfall.
