NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

The governor’s office said Cuomo will visit the U.S. territory in the Caribbean on Friday. It says the trip comes at the request of U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp, a former New York City police officer born in Brooklyn.

Cuomo has already deployed rescue teams to the area in recent weeks, including 130 members of the New York Air National Guard, along with equipment.
