NORFOLK, Va. Three Virginia-based Navy ships that supported storm relief efforts in New York and New Jersey are coming home.

The Navy says the amphibious ships Wasp and San Antonio are scheduled to return to Naval Station Norfolk on Monday. The Carter Hall is scheduled to return Monday to Joint Expeditionary Base Little-Creek-Fort Story in Virginia Beach.

Sailors and Marines from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit helped with the repair of the Hoboken Ferry Terminal and the Sandy Hook Coast Guard Station. They also assisted emergency clearance and restoration efforts in Staten Island, N.Y., and New Jersey's Barrier Islands.

The Coast Guard used the ships as a landing platform for search and rescue operations.
