Thanks to Texas Task Force 1 and others who responded to the devastating floods in Texas early this week. Other units included Texas Task Force 2 Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Texas Military Department.
As another round of thunderstorms is expected to slowly march into the Houston region Wednesday, more flooding is possible for areas already underwater.
