Authorities at Fort Benning, the U.S. Army post in west Georgia, say they're dealing with an ongoing "emergency situation" at the post's Warrior Transition Battalion.

Fort Benning officials said Wednesday afternoon on the base's official Facebook account and on Twitter that officials have secured the area and that personnel were safety evacuated as a precaution.

Base officials said in the social media posts that children in a child development center were safe but were being moved to another site due the emergency.

The base provided no other details, and Fort Benning officials could not immediately be reached or did not give further information Wednesday afternoon.
