In 2005, Base Logistics responded to five hurricanes.

Hurricane Cindy (Cat 1) dumped heavy rains on Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Maryland; Hurricane Dennis (Cat 3) hit the western tip of the Florida panhandle and then tracked up through Alabama and Mississippi; Hurricane Emily (Cat 3) hit Mexico about 86 miles south of Brownsville, Texas; Hurricane Katrina (strong Cat 3) wrecked southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi; and Hurricane Wilma (Cat 3) hit southwestern Florida and crossed over the peninsula into the Atlantic Ocean.
