CORONADO (NEWS 8) – A Navy helicopter squadron deployed to Houston to help in rescue efforts returned to Naval Air Station North Island Wednesday evening.
Four MH-60S helicopters flown by HSC-21 and HSC-23 crews flew into Houston to deliver food and water and assist other Navy personnel in rescue missions in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Eighty-nine locally based Navy personnel assisted in Hurricane Harvey relief. The Blackjacks and HSC-23 Wildcards alongside other east and west coast based helicopter squadrons flew for a combined 485.5 hours, rescued 357 people and transported 12,810 pounds of cargo in Houston.
