JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two Navy patrol crafts, the USS Zephyr and the USS Tornado, will soon make Jacksonville their home.

The ships will arrive at 8 a.m. Thursday.

Both ships carry around 30 sailors each.

The Public information officer of Naval Station Mayport William Townsend tells Action News, the arrival of the ships will give the local economy a boost.

Not only will more than 50 sailors move to the area, but so will their families.
