Following Cyclone Sidr on November 15, 2007, the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps conducted humanitarian assistance. The storm killed over 3,000 people and left several hundred thousand homeless. Two U.S. Navy ships were diverted to the afflicted areas: USS Tarawa (LHA-1) and USS Kearsarge (LHD-3). Working with the USAID, the Bangladesh government, and the U.S. State Department, over 100 sorties were performed by helicopters and aircraft. More than 400 tons of food, 12,000 gallons of fresh water, and 200 tons of relief materials were transported to remote sites. Approximately 1,000 patients were treated by the military medical teams. The mission ended in early December.
