Indiana Task Force 1 deploys to Louisiana, Tropical Storm Sally to become hurricane

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana Task Force 1 was deployed to the Gulf Coast on Sunday night as the area braces for Tropical Storm Sally to become a hurricane and move inland later this week.

A team of 45 people and two dogs were leaving about 10:30 p.m. Sunday for Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The team is specialized in helping with structure collapses and water rescues.

It’s the second time members of Task Force 1 will be in the Gulf Coast in less than a month. A small group was in Louisiana after Hurricane Laura hit the area more than two weeks ago.

Task Force 1 expected to arrive in Louisiana no later than noon Monday.
