The Cajun Navy has ‘landed’ in Houston as Harvey floods rise

An elderly disabled woman and her family were among hundreds of people in and around Houston rescued from the floodwaters produced by the remains of Hurricane Harvey Monday, Aug. 28, 2017.

Members of the Cajun Navy volunteer group have landed in Houston to assist residents affected by flooding from Tropical Storm Harvey Monday, according to posts on the group’s Facebook page.

“Clyde and the other team members and teams are all safe”.

“People that want to be rescued are trying to steal the boat”, Cain said, to the surprise of host Costello.

Due to damage to the boats, Cain said the group is having to replace boats while also trying to rescue people.

“Okay Texas The Cajun Navy from Louisiana is enroute to Dickinson”.

“We are now on stand down pending a new strategic plan”, members said. Dozens of trucks and boats are seen arriving in Texas, and the group has continued to call for more volunteers to join.
