It didn't take long for Texas Task Force 1 to make its presence felt. Less than a day after Tuesday's deployment, the Elite Rescue Team was already busy saving lives.
By Wednesday, the Task Force had already performed or assisted with rescues in Marble Falls and Burnet along with Williamson and Lampasas Counties.
Wednesday afternoon, a group of Task Force members was sent to Smithwick where 24 people were stranded.
Another team was dispatched to Inks Lake where rising lake levels threatened residents.
