"In Puerto Rico, DoD continues ongoing relief operations and is leaning forward to rapidly deploy additional response capacity, expanding airfield throughput and positioning key leaders forward supporting FEMA's efforts to stabilize the situation in Puerto Rico and sustain life. DoD continues to support FEMA's immediate objectives to complete hospital assessments in PR [Puerto Rico]and establish an island-wide commodities distribution plan. The situation in USVI [U.S. Virgin Islands] continues to improve; shifting from response to recovery."
