Military jets wait out Hurricane Arthur at Ohio air base

DAYTON, OHIO — Military officials say dozens of jets were moved from a base in North Carolina to one in southwest Ohio to ensure they wouldn't be damaged by high winds during Hurricane Arthur.

WDTN-TV in Dayton reports more than 50 F-15E Strike Eagles and four KC-135R Stratotankers were repositioned from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base before the storm arrived on the East Coast this week. Officials said it was simply a precaution.

Hurricane Arthur began moving offshore and away from North Carolina's Outer Banks early Friday after hitting the state's barrier islands overnight. It had strengthened to a Category 2 storm with winds of 100 mph Thursday night but weakened Friday.
