ATLANTIC OCEAN (Sept. 15, 2018)

MH-60 Sea Hawk helicopters from the “Dusty Dogs” of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 7, attached to Carrier Strike Group 12 and the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), are recalled to Naval Station Norfolk, where they will be better postured to provide land-based rotary wing Defense Support of Civil Authorities if required in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Abraham Lincoln remains underway after Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command ordered all U.S. Navy ships in the Hampton Roads area to sortie on Sept. 10, ahead of the storm, which continues to bring high winds and rain to the Mid-Atlantic coast.
