Post Houston Water Rescue Thread
Guys,

Please use this thread as the main line of communication for water rescue efforts. It's best to keep all info in one thread.

Feel free to post up any and all info on emergency operations contacts, launch sites, meeting spots, fuel locations etc.

Those going to help bring lots of fuel and water as you may be out there for a while with not much help.

God Bless everyone going out there. Stay safe!

Post Re: Houston Water Rescue Thread
As I posted in my thread...

The Cajun Navy is on their way to Houston. Their FB page says all boats welcome! The weather channel is reporting the same thing.

I will be headed out in the morning from Fort Worth, through College Station and into west Houston. Will be looking for guidance from police, fire and rescue as I work my way down.

I don't have a lot of information, but will share as it is acquired.

God bless, Bob

Not many from Houston read mud motor pages just saying. Thanks for your efforts. I can't even get to my boat right now. I'll be out in the morning assuming little to no rain overnight.

This is what we are working on. Several authorities are using it now. Gives you an idea of where the highest need victims are.

MMT old timer here. A close friend of mine's grandmother, aunt and uncle are stranded. They've got knee deep water in the downstairs of their house. They are at 11639 Idlebrook Dr. in Houston. If anybody could go pick them up, I'll buy you a beer. Please text me if you can help: 9039263049

Anybody know if authorities are welcoming the help of citizens with boats? I can round up 2-3 boats and head that way from TN but don't want to get in the way. Not sure who to contact to see if we can help.

It's hard to get around to rescue areas. Fire hydrant put a pretty good dent in my boat. Broke a finger last night but my motor is acting up now. All along the interstates the people are being rescued. The people that are further back are the ones that need help. I don't know the area but rivers are coming up. Other areas are draining. If you want to help you just have to get in your boat and go. I've had law enforcement or fire department in my boat the whole time. Houston pd was even nice enough to put me up in a hotel
Last night. Gonna leave the rest for yall

You folks be careful out there. Looks like some of the Katrina evacuees never left. Personally, I would not be in a situation like this without firepower to defend myself.

Post Re: Houston Water Rescue Thread
That's a good point Kirk, and why I've chosen to stay pretty local to me for now as far as helping out. I'm preparing to have to go that direction in the next few days to assist as long as my place stays dry and my people here are safe. That's still priority #1. Everyone should help where they can IMO, but not at the expense of neglecting their own.

-everyone stay safe out there no matter where you're at. This isn't even close to being over with.

Does anyone have an idea of where the best place would be to go with a boat Friday afternoon? Lake Charles area? I'm in Florida and would need to know where to go with my GTR!

The water receded enough this afternoon for me to get to my boat. I want to get out there and help as soon as possible, but I am not certain where help is needed. Does anyone know what staging areas will need more boats tomorrow? Thanks.
