Navy prepares to send Norfolk-based ships to New York and New Jersey if needed
The Navy is preparing to send Norfolk-based ships to New York and New Jersey should FEMA ask for assistance in the hurricane ravaged area.
Parts of New York and New Jersey experienced flooding, winds and fires, like never before.
The devastation is being called “unprecedented”.
Sailors will help with disaster relief any way they can.
The Navy says they have not yet been officially asked to help out, as they did after Hurricane Katrina, but they are preparing to be ready to go should FEMA, the lead agency in the disaster, request their support.
