3. The USS Pelieu is providing helicopter aid

Afghanistan based helicopters are providing aid. We're doing a lot.

"Four Chinook helicopters and two Black Hawks aided Pakistani officials in the northwestern part of the country, where flooding and landslides have isolated large swaths of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

To date, U.S. helicopters have rescued 2,305 people and transported 211,000 pounds of supplies in 40 sorties. Weather has been a tremendous obstacle, with monsoon rains still falling over the area. The choppers, based in Afghanistans Ghazi air base, could not fly for two days earlier this week."
