Task Force 1 May Be Back in Action

By  | 

With more flooding possible in the coming hours, Texas Task Force 1 is in town and ready to head south.

Teams from Austin, San Antonio and Dallas are spending the night in College Station and are awaiting word from Harris County officials. Governor Perry mobilized the rescues teams Monday morning in the wake of the Houston flooding.

Six water rescue teams are ready to move in to flood-affected areas if called upon. That determination will be made Tuesday morning.

Texas Task Force 1's activation is the first major mobilization of the team this year. In 2005, they notably assisted in search and rescue efforts in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
