Seabees working 

From a series of e-mails from the folks at the Seabee base, we have a sense of what tasks they're taking on: -- Navy personnel from the Seabee base in Gulfport are repairing five schools in Gulfport and Biloxi. -- They are being joined by Marines to support efforts in New Orleans. -- NMCB 40 is building a 500-person tent city to house victims. -- Underwater Construction Team 1 from Norfolk will survey the Gulfport Small Craft Harbor today or Thursday. The Navy Divers will inspect the harbor and pier, checking the piles with sonar. They'll also map the harbor's hydrography to see if there are any hazards to shipping.
