Special forces to 'invade' Tampa today

It will be hard to miss a display of military might in downtown Tampa this afternoon. U.S. Special Operations Command is holding a combat demonstration outside the Tampa Convention Center.

A mock commando assault and hostage rescue are planned, so don't be alarmed if you see boats, assault vehicles, and military helicopters in the area.

The demonstration is part of the annual Special Operations Forces Industry conference taking place at the convention center this week.

The demo starts around 1:30. There will be some road closures once it begins, and the boat channel will be closed beforehand.

Special Operations Command is based out of MacDill Air Force Base here in Tampa.
