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.
