The tarmac is getting a little more crowded at Scott Air Force Base. Nine C-17 Globemaster-Three aircraft are arriving at the Metro-east base today to escape possible damage from Hurricane Irma. The transport planes are being moved from Charleston, South Carolina. Irma isn't expected to make a direct hit but the Air Force is concerned about the effects of potential flooding.
