Military personnel help with cleanup after Hurricane Dorian
By Trident Staff
Through Op LENTUS 19-04, military personnel from Joint Task Force Atlantic stepped in to help with the community cleanup following the damage caused by Hurricane Dorian, which hit the Atlantic region on Saturday, September 7, 2019. Hurricane Dorian was officially a post-tropical storm but the winds reached Category 2 strength. The storm included heavy rain and high winds that caused flooding and power outages across the region. Fallen trees, branches and limbs brought down power lines and work crews from utility companies operated around the clock to restore electricity to thousands of homes and businesses. When the storm subsided, military members moved in to assist with the large task of clearing away debris, including fallen trees that were a hazard to the public.
