Hurricane Felix assessment team arrives in Nicaragua

OVER THE MOSQUITO COAST, Nicaragua -- Army Capt. Jon-Paul Lavandeira and Tech. Sgt. Heather Prater, both engineers assigned to Joint Task Force Bravo at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, take aerial video from a CH-47 Chinook helicopter here to document damage caused by Hurricane Felix. The two service members are part of a 13-person task force deployed here for hurricane damage assessment. The video system is an Automated Route Recon Kit, or ARRK, which allows video, still images and global positioning system coordinates to be transmitted back to U.S. Southern Command, Joint Task Force Bravo, and the American Embassy in Nicaragua.
