Pentagon coordinating massive response to Katrina

(Washington-AP) August 31, 2005 - Every branch of the US military is involved in the rescue-and-relief mission following Hurricane Katrina.

The US Northern Command is coordinating search and rescue, medical help and supplies. The work will support the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

The Army and Air Force are providing search-and-rescue helicopters. The Army Corps of Engineers is organizing one of its largest response efforts in recent memory.

The Navy says four of its ships loaded with supplies such as food, water, soap and medical supplies are preparing to leave Virginia. They're expected in the Gulf by the weekend.

The hospital ship USNS Comfort is leaving Baltimore for the Gulf, and eight swift water rescue teams from California are on the way to Louisiana.
