US Soldiers Aid Dominica Evacuees After Hurricane Maria Sep 28, 2017

All smiles as the US Navy and Marines helped to evacuate people from Dominica in the wake of Hurricane Maria on September 27. The evacuees were being taken to island airports and then to the islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe, the Navy said.

The Navy also said that the Department of Defense is supporting United States Agency for International Developmen, the lead federal agency, in helping those affected by Hurricane Maria to minimize suffering and is one component of the overall whole-of-government response effort.

The US military is supporting the United States Agency for International Development in its work following the hurricane. The USS Wasp arrived in the region on September 7 in the wake of Hurricane Irma and has remained to provide relief. The soldiers are conducting search and rescue operations on Dominica and have delivered 2,000 pounds of food, a news report said.
