CRESTVIEW — A National Weather Service wind advisory is in effect for the inland Okaloosa County area from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today. This includes Crestview, Milton, Niceville and Eglin Air Force Base.

Winds of 25 to 39 miles per hour are expected. The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office stated that winds that strong make driving high profile vehicles difficult, and are capable of blowing around lightweight and unsecured outdoor objects.

Residents are urged to use extra caution and secure any lightweight outdoor objects.
