Texas Task Force 1 demobilizes from Harvey, members return home

TX-TF1 completed demobilization today after 14 days of search and rescue, evacuation and other life-safety operations across the state during one of the largest natural disaster events in history. Harvey made landfall on the Texas Coast as a category 4 hurricane and then became a major tropical storm, dropping a record-breaking 51.88 inches of rain on the state

TX-TF1 continues to assist coastal communities experiencing major flooding

TX-TF1 and TX-TF2 urban search and rescue (US&R) teams continue to support local jurisdictions in Brazoria County, where the Brazos River is in a "flood of record" status. In Harris County, the teams are assisting the local fire department with evacuations of a community near Buffalo Bayou.

TX-TF1 continues operations as river flooding remains in East, Southeast Texas

Texas Task Force 1, Texas Task Force 2, and other state and federal resources are still conducting life-safety operations and search and rescue operations across much of Southeast and East Texas as flooding continues.
