Three Hampton Roads-based ships are home tonight after helping with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The USS Wasp, USS San Antonio, and USS Carter Hall all traveled to New York and New Jersey to help.

While there, the ships also served as a landing platform for the US Coast Guard helicopters on search and rescue missions.

A number of Navy personnel are still helping people affected by the storm.
