George,

This is the information we received from our Siljaline contact, Tuomas Nylul:Jd. who is their corporate affairs and external communications director. The charter agreement between Siljaline and LSU was approved by FEMA, but Siljaline does not have a copy of that approval. We assume it was handled on the LSU side. Siljaline's lawyers have been working with Mr. William Sylvia, vice president for finance and administration at the University, and Mr. P. Raymond Lamonica, General Counsel of LSU. Siljaline said that these two gentlemen would have a copy of the FEMA approval.

Hope this helps. We appreciate your assistance o~ this matter. Regards,

We just received word from the MFA that the Finnish ferry line, Siljeline, has been approved by FEMA to send a ferry to Baton Rouge to house the students and staff of LSU's Health and Science Center. Apparently the company is in the process of signing a contrac.t with LSU and the ferry will depart for Baton Rouge early next week. Our Consular Section is now processing visas for 22 Finnish crew members. While this is a contractual arrangement, it is a reflection of continued cooperation and assistance from Finland in the wake of Katrina.

Several Member States (Malta, Cyprus) have provided financial support to the Hurricane Katrina relief fund. In order to enable the MIC to maintain a correct overview, Member States are kindly asked to notify any changes In the offers, acceptances or delivery' of assistance.

Following acceptance of offers of assistance by the State Department there remains the opportunity to utilize NATO strategic lift to transport commodities to the US (through the EADRCC), Additional airlift is being provided by Canada (1 x Airbus A-310) and the Ukraine (1x AN-124) to help complete this mission. It is anticipated that NATO flights will take place every other day from 15 th Sept through to 23 rd Sept.

An overview of the (global) flight movement since 04 Sept - as listed by US OFDA ., is attached to this message. (Flights listed in yellow have been received).

The second NATO flight with assistance from Austrian and the Slovak Republic was scheduled for 15 Sept. A third flight with assistance from Norway and further commodities from the Czech Republic is scheduled for 17'h Sept.

An overview of the (global) flight movements is attached in annex 1. N.B.: Flights listed in yellow have been received. The list may not include all those offers that have been accepted as they enter the list only when the flight approval procedure has been -eoneluded.F rench-cargo-f1ight-also-includes-lJK-tents-(-2900-blankets)

The US military airbase at Little Rock, Arkansas (LRAFB) is the primary point of entry for international assistance by air. LRAFB has a logistics unit in place for the reception and

The commodities are being called forward by FEMA field elements including JFOs. To date 86 trucks have been sent out from LRAFB (19 to Mississippi, 61 to Louisiana, 4 to Arkansas and 2 to Texas), including commodities received from the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

FEMA have highlighted the Swedish Ericsson equipment as particularly useful.

Operations in the New Orleans region:

The German led and Luxembourg supported THW team continues to work closely with the local authorities as well as with US forces and is housed on US Naval vessel Shreveport together with the Dutch team. The THW team have 12 major pumps operating in St

Bernard and Jefferson parishes. In addition to this, the team is undertaking a variety of smaller scale pumping activities in the New Orleans area and has helped to return to use

of at least 3 permanent pump stations so far. The team have also been contributing to

contingency planning to deal with the heavy rainfall anticipated in the next few days. The

Washington Times on Sept 15 ran an article on THW work with interviews of the team members.

A French diVing team arrived in the New Orleans area on Tuesday (13 th Sept) and is

working in collaboration with the US Navy, The team has been split into two. One team

has been helping identify and unblock marine channels whilst the other has been conducting underwater searches and the recovery of bodies. Team leader M. Arnault reports they are due to move on to work in the Gulfport area tomorrow.

The Dutch pumping team is conducting operations in Plaquemines parish, the team consists of five experts, three pumps of 50 cubic metres flow per minute, and transportation. The team is now located on board US Naval vessel Shreveport.

. British ready-to-eat meals donatedfor Hu;ricane Kat;ina'victl'ms are stuck on shelves at Little RockAir Force Base in Jacksonville, the hub for all international Katrina aid, because ofstrict US. regulations put in place after a mad cow disease scare. The meals containing British meat cannot be used because US. regulations prohibit the importation ofBritish beefand poultry. The prohibition was put in place after the degenerative disease was found in British cattle. A human/arm ofthe disease can be deadly.

Gidday Tim & Denise et al-

To clarify a few points:

There is a cargo bottleneck with the designated NATO 707 flights-limited cargo capacity of about 20 MTlflight thus the remaining accepted NATO country goods being consolidated at Ramstein (anticipated at about 220 MT with some volume restrictions; that is some of the goods like blankets will volume out the aircraft before weight does).

• N003 & NOOS are 707 NATO flights (limited cargo capacity of about 20 MT per flight).

• N004 is a Canadian military aircraft (probably limited to about 33 MT of cargo).

• N006 is a donated commercial aircraft to move the NATO goods (about 90-110 MT).

• WHY-to move the accepted goods (about 200 MT) from Ramsteln AFB to Little Rock no later than

23 Sep. to allow for tlmelydlslrlbutlon-of the goods to the field.
