TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, California. – Travis Air Force Base, northeast of San Francisco is locked as a result of what the base calls a security incident.
The base issued a security alert shortly after 3:30 pm Wednesday asking people to shelter in place, lock doors and windows.
Marie Lowe, a citizen who answered the phone at the base of the public affairs office, says details are sketchy and officials are investigating, because they do not know what exactly is going on.
Base officials asked on Facebook for the public to stay away to ensure that the emergency services can do their work.
The lockdown comes on the same day that the basis had been for the execution of the security lock exercises, but officials say that the incident is real and not a part of the drill.
