RFA Lyme Bay Helps Dominica after Tropical Storm

Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) Lyme Bay is approaching the final phase of her taking to assist the island of Dominica following Tropical Storm Erika.

The British naval vessel has spent six days stationed off Dominica and has achieved much following her short-notice rerouting to the island.

The multinational relief mission has included aid from US, Venezuelan and British military ships and the effort continues with the recent arrival of the Dutch ship Pelikaan to ensure unbroken support to the island.

RFA Lyme Bay has now departed Dominica and is now re-storing and preparing for further tasking in what is the most risky period for hurricanes in the region.
