MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Mobile District commander, Col. Sebastien P. Joly and Wynne Fuller, chief of Operations Division, will be touring sites affected by Hurricane Michael Oct. 16-17 in both Georgia and Florida.

The sites that will be visited are: Jim Woodruff Lock & Dam, the Lake Seminole office in Lake Seminole, Ga., the Walter F. George Dam in Fort Gaines, Ga., the Panama City office in Panama City, Fla., and the Tyndall Air Force Base office located in Panama City, Fla.

Joly said he was impressed with how Mobile District has responded to Category 4 storm and how they are still doing great work.

“I am absolutely amazed at how everyone has responded and want to publicly thank everyone for doing what it takes during this natural disaster to get the job done,” Joly said. “The work we will need to do to support our teammates in the impacted areas, the devastated communities, and our federal responsibilities will continue to ramp up over the next several weeks. Their support is our number one priority and I am confident that we will provide exactly what is needed.”

During the trip, Joly will meet with USACE employees who work at projects impacted by the storm and deliver supplies to the families and employees of the district.
