USNS Comfort & Other Navy Ships Underway - Hurricane Avoidance

Reported here:
The hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) departed Pascagoula, Miss., Sept. 20 after spending ten days providing medical and dental care, and disaster relief assistance to the citizens of Pascagoula and surrounding areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

As Hurricane Rita approaches the Gulf of Mexico region, many Navy assets in the Gulf region are preparing to get underway to ride out the storm.

“Our ship must leave to be in a position to be out of the storm’s path in time,” said Ship's Master Capt. Tom Finger.
At least the Navy has a lot of assets available in the area if needed for Rita.
