ALTUS AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. – The 97th Air Mobility Wing will be in normal operation status Wednesday, De. 30. There is no delayed reporting. All installation entry points should be operational during their standard hours.
The Mighty 97th has restored power to a majority of Altus AFB and is diligently working to complete this action. During efforts to resupply the entire installation, there is the possibility of intermittently unscheduled power outages. These possible issues are not long-term and should not affect power in base housing.
The City of Altus asks base personnel to continue conserving water; please use only what is necessary. Excess water use can create problems at the waste water treatment plant, which currently has no power. A generator for that plant is on the way.
Especially during the holidays, be safe. Evaluate the hazards in your plans (fatigue, weather, pressing to get to your destination), and then be responsible in your actions.
