The USNS Comfort recently showed up in New York, to help battle coronavirus in the tri-state area. The USNS Mercy docked in Los Angeles on March 27 to help out on the west coast.

Eduardo Moreno, 44, of San Pedro, was handed over to FBI agents Wednesday and charged with one count of train wrecking in Tuesday’s derailment, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.
