Wednesday after an Army Blackhawk helicopter crashed during a night training exercise at Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle. Here's an overview of what happened.

The Marines are part of a Camp Lejeune, North Carolina-based special operations group and the soldiers are from a Hammond, Louisiana-based National Guard unit, according to Eglin Air Force Base officials. The Louisiana guardsmen are members of the 1-244th Assault Helicopter Battalion. The names of those involved have not been released, pending notification of their next of kin. A military official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the official wasn't authorized to speak on the record, said they are presumed dead.

Dense fog, a misty rain and darkness hampered search efforts for the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. The helicopter went down off of Navarre Beach on Santa Rosa Island, which is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico between Pensacola and Destin. The helicopter was on a routine night training mission when contact was lost. It had taken off from an airport in nearby Destin. The helicopter was reported missing about 8:30 p.m. CDT Tuesday.


Starting off foggy but by lunch we'll start to see a partly cloudy sky but a lake breeze will kick in so the lake shore areas might not make it Mid-40s! That includes downtown!!
