WAVY News 10

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The USNS Kanawha left Naval Station Norfolk Friday for a six-month deployment to Europe and Africa.

The Kanawha is one of the Navy’s replenishment oilers.

The Kanawha will provide fuel to U.S. Navy ships at sea and jet fuels to aircraft assigned to aircraft carriers in the U.S. 6th Fleet Operations.

The Kanawha was supposed to leave Naval Station Norfolk on Wednesday, but the Navy changed the departure date to Friday because of weather.
