Texas Task Force 1 Deploys to Cooke County

With more rain expected in North Texas, members of Texas Task Force 1 have deployed to Cooke County.

On Monday, Governor Rick Perry authorized the activation of state resources, including the College Station-based task force. Two water rescue teams consisting of 15 members are on standby in the Gainesville area, which sustained devastating flooding a week ago.

Forecasters predict more heavy rain throughout the week.

Texas Task Force 1 is sponsored by the Texas Engineering Extension Service, or TEEX.
