The Arecibo Galaxy Environment Survey (AGES) is using the Arecibo L-band Feed Array to search for and study galaxies and gas clouds in different environments using the 21-cm line of neutral hydrogen. I will discuss the results coming out of AGES, including the Virgo cluster, where we have found a population of dark clouds, analysis of our sample of isolated galaxies, and our newest results from the NGC 7619 field. I will also give an update on the recovery process at Arecibo Observatory following Hurricane Maria in September.
