The Wilmington District has deployed staff to the U.S. Virgin Islands working closely with local officials to coordinate preparedness and response activities.
The US Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District is in constant contact with our federal, state, and local response partners to implement recovery responses.
Under PL 84-99, we provide disaster preparedness services and advanced planning measures designed to reduce damage caused by an impending disaster.
Under the Stafford Act, we support the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA in carrying out the National Response Plan, which calls on 30 federal departments and agencies to provide coordinated disaster relief and recovery operations.
Call centers for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will be established as communications on the islands improve.
