Status update - running on three hours sleep. We received our first patients from the Virgiin Islands and will receive the first patients from Puerto Rico tonight. Puerto Rico's evacuations are slow because they are under a curfew and not allowing flight traffic after 7 p.m. They are one hour behind us. I guess besides the devastation, the conditions are really bad (drinking water, food, security). My intel is pretty accurate as I receive a daily situation report.
The mix of civilian and military partners is really special. This is the first fully activated department of defense Federal Coordinating Center Defense Support of Civilian Authorities mission!
