After two major earthquakes hit towns in California’s Mojave Desert earlier this month, elements of the California National Guard were called up to provide aid to disaster victims. The 143rd Military Police Battalion set up an emergency supply distribution point in Trona High School after 30 miles of highway closed, leaving the town isolated, according to a service news release. With water lines broken and a limited food supply, Guard members have been distributing 500 cases of drinking water per day to residents, along with about 200 Red Cross snack packs and about 100 Meals, Ready to Eat.
