Defense Logistics Agency Energy Pacific provided more than 1 million gallons of fuel in support of humanitarian relief efforts in the aftermath of Typhoon Bopha that hit southern Philippines Dec. 4.

Fuel support originated with DLA Energy in Japan, which was the departure point for the Hercules aircraft flying the relief, said DLA Energy Pacific at Guam Commander Navy Cmdr. Andrea Lemon.

“We coordinated with U.S. Task Force 73 Commander, Logistics Group Western Pacific, about shipboard support, confirmed that our Into-Plane contractors were operating and that our Joint Special Operations Task Force – Philippines forces were unaffected by the typhoon,” Lemon said

The typhoon left more than 1,000 people dead and 800 missing. With 1.2 million families displaced, Bopha is the strongest and deadliest storm to hit the Philippines this year, according to the country's emergency management agency. As of mid-December, approximately 80,000 persons were staying at 63 evacuations centers set up as part of the humanitarian relief efforts.

As of Dec. 12, two KC130-J Hercules aircraft have delivered more than 330,000 pounds of materiel to Davao City, Philippines, including 49,000 pounds of rice, 14,500 family ration packs and 40 generators.
