Texas Task Force 1 Sent to Southeast Texas

By  | 

Texas Task Force 1 is headed to Southeast Texas because of heavy rainfall.

The College Station-based Urban Search and Rescue Team deployed two water strike teams to the Beaumont area late Friday.

In all, 16 members of Texas Task Force One will likely assist with water rescues.

Extensive rainfall has led to road flooding in Southeast Texas. And officials believe waters will continue to rise through the weekend.
