USS George Washington to deploy to the Philippines

The USS George Washington will deploy to the Philippines to help with recovery from typhoon Haiyan.

The aircraft carrier is currently docked in Hong Kong, a two-day sail from the Philippines.

The ship has 5,000 sailors and more than 80 aircraft onboard.

The crew is being recalled from shore leave and the ship is expected to leave late Monday. 

U.S. Marines are already in the Philippines to help distribute the aid.

Officials are concerned there could be even more deaths there due to outbreaks of disease and a lack of food and water. (Source: CNN)
