Hurricane support in the Caribbean

17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC has been working hard in the Caribbean to support those affected by the devastating hurricanes that have swept across the region this month.

Members of the regiment onboard Royal Navy support vessel RFA Mounts Bay, have been providing aid to the islands following Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma.

RFA Mounts Bay was already in the region before the hurricanes hit and according to the Ministry of Defence “can provide a high level of capability and flexibility during disaster relief operations”.

The vessel can also provide emergency supplies of food, water and personnel ‘ as well as medical support, temporary shelter and sanitation and the repair of infrastructure.
