Military helps pump water, restore power

By Jennifer Rizzo

The U.S. military is continuing to provide support in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, focusing particularly on pumping water out of flooded areas and restoring power.

In New York, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is working to deploy 100 high-volume water pumps, supplementing 100 units provided by the Defense Department.

More than 200 power generators have been set up in New York and New Jersey. They will be deployed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as needed.

According to the Pentagon, approximately 10,000 National Guard forces have been activated to support these states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia and West Virginia.

Guard forces are assisting with search and rescue missions, debris removal, transportation and providing communication. And in West Virginia, which has been hit with a heavy snowfall, the National Guard is patrolling Interstate 68 for stranded motorists and assisting the power company with generators.

The Defense Department's Transportation Command has airlifted approximately 120 medical personnel to New York City to assist with care in nursing homes and at-risk elderly patients.

The Defense Logistics Agency is providing fuel and fuel transportation.

The U.S. Navy moved three ships toward New York and New Jersey in case the storm-struck states ask for help, officials said on Wednesday.

Navy spokesman Lt. Commander Chris Servello said there has been no official request for assistance from the amphibious landing ships that can launch helicopters, make fresh water and haul critical supplies and other aid.
