More than 3,300 Coast Guard men and women from Florida to Louisiana continue to utilize a mix of more than 50 aircraft, dozens of cutters and hundreds of small boats to conduct search, rescue, response, waterway reconstitution and environmental impact assessment operations today.Scuttle is that JTF Katrina (that would be Joint Task Force Katrina) is taking over ops and air assets flying (and perhaps other) will likely be DoD dominated. CG air assets will quickly demob.
The numbers of rescues have decreased significantly in the last 36 hours, with only about 50 people being helped to safety in the New Orleans area Tuesday, bringing the number of people rescued to date to more than 23,800 people.
