Kings Bay, Ga. — Tonight, U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff released the following statement:
“This evening at approximately 5:50 p.m., a suspected tornado touched down at Georgia’s Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. Multiple people on the base sustained injuries. I spoke this evening with Captain Chester Parks, Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay commanding officer, and assured him that he and his team have my full attention and I am standing by to provide any necessary Congressional assistance.
