Incredible Pictures and Footage of Heroism Abound in Houston
The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey continues to pound Texas, where the government has rescued some 2,000 and still more are counting on volunteers like the infamous Cajun Navy to deliver aid and rescue. There’s a lot of sadness and devastation in Texas right now, and FEMA is calling on anyone and everyone who can to get involved in the relief effort. If you need a little motivation to pitch in, here are just a few of the rescues that have been captured by cameras.
