The Goodyear blimp evacuates to Valdosta

August 31, 2006

Valdosta - Many Florida residents chose to weather Tropical Storm Ernesto from the comfort of their own home rather than evacuating to Georgia.

But Valdosta did take in one giant evacuee.

The Goodyear Blimp made the long trip from Pompano Beach to wait out the storm at Valdosta Regional Airport.

After its two day stay, the 192 foot blimp began it's journey back to Florida this morning.
