Officials will escort people in Braggs across the military base at Camp Gruber at 6:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 a.m. so they can get to places like work and the grocery store.

They'll then be escorted back in at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Wednesday night.

The plan moves residents across the military base at Camp Gruber on a designated roadway.

The escorts will begin at Gate 12 on Highway 10 in Muskogee County and end at the Zeb entrance in Cherokee County.

Because everyone living in Braggs is cut off due to the flooding, most of them haven't been able to get to work for nearly a week.

Right now, they're only allowing 4-wheel drive vehicles to take that road for safety reasons.

Officials recommend anyone planning on using the escorts to pack clothing and necessities in the event that the return trip is suspended due to weather.
