Naval officials have ordered the deployment of three large-deck amphibious ships to the New York and New Jersey coasts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The ships haven't been assigned relief duties, but the moves "will allow our forces to be best-postured to minimize the amount of time it will take these forces to get on station" if needed, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Navy's chief spokesman.
