The Jacksonville and Camp Lejeune communities are dealing with the tragedies of the 16 service members, seven from Camp Lejeune, lost in Monday night's KC-130 crash in Mississippi.

Mississippi Public Safety Commissioner Marshall Fisher says residents should be aware of unsafe debris. The KC-130 is used as a refueling tanker.
