USNS Comfort Heads Towards Hurricane Florence

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Sailors assigned to Arleigh Burke-class destroyer USS Truxton (DDG 103) pose for a photo on the pier after helping Mercy-class hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH-20) depart the pier ahead of of Hurricane Florence. There are nearly 30 ships underway from Naval Station Norfolk and Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek as Hurricane Florence is forecasted to bring high winds and rain to the Mid-Atlantic coast. Ships will be directed to areas of the Atlantic where they will be best prepared for storm avoidance. (photo by Stacy M.
