What military bases are more highly to be affected by hurricanes?
I’ve heard that Tyndall Air Force Base was struck by a Hurricane Michael, Homestead Military Air Base was hit by Hurricane Andrew, the largest joint military base in Hawaii Pearl Harbor was affected by Hurricane Lane, Keesler Air Force Base was hit by Hurricane Katrina and that Naval Station Norfolk was struck by Hurricane Florence. What other American military bases are more likely to get by hurricanes?

In the rare event of a west coast hurricane, Naval Air Station North Island. While any storm stronger than Category 1 is unlikely, I'm not sure how well prepared they'd even be for that.

Pretty much anything along the Atlantic or Gulf coasts, plus Hawaii.
Of course, the odds decrease as you make your way up the East Coast.

Any base/post on the east coast or gulf. Guam and those in Japan. Hawaii has multiple bases but gets hit once in a blue moon.

Coastal bases. NORAD is unlikely to be hit by a hurricane.

Keesler also got a pretty good hit from Hurricane Betsy back in '65,,, I was there.
