    NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- The Navy says almost 30 Virginia-based ships and 128 aircraft sent away from their bases in the Hampton Roads-area because of now-Tropical Storm Florence have been given the go-ahead to return.

    The Navy says the aircraft will make their way back beginning Saturday, and the ships will start to return Sunday.

    A Navy statement says the decision comes after inspections of the region’s port and airfield.
