Huge war­ship helps hur­ri­cane vic­tims

The Week - Junior - - Around The World -

The UK’s big­gest war­ship, HMS Ocean, has sailed to the Bri­tish Vir­gin Is­lands – a UK ter­ri­tory – to help peo­ple af­fected by hur­ri­canes Irma and Maria. Hur­ri­cane Irma hit the is­lands in early Septem­ber, and Maria fol­lowed two weeks later. The war­ship is car­ry­ing 650 mil­i­tary of­fi­cers, plus heli­copters and emer­gency aid for sur­vivors. HMS Ocean has a flight deck big­ger than a foot­ball pitch.
