Oklahoma National Guard deploying soldiers to Texas for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

Pennsylvania National Guard Soldiers load bottled water onto a CH-47 Chinook helicopter September 1 at Fort Indiantown Gap in preparation to depart for the Hurricane Harvey relief effort in Texas.

Governor Asa Hutchinson has authorized the deployment of 1,500 National Guard troops from Arkansas to help with the recovery efforts in Texas following Hurricane Harvey. It's possible Texas Gov. Greg Abbott could request additional assistance in the coming weeks.

Schroeder says so far, they've rescued more than 200 survivors and dozens of dogs, whom many survivors refuse to leave behind.

The 38th Infantry Division, headquartered in Indianapolis, deployed its Mobile Command Group, consisting of 27 personnel, to Texas.

The 10 Pennsylvania National Guard soldiers join six airmen who deployed earlier this week.

"A lot of devastation throughout the area", said Macias.

The soldiers from the 34th Combat Aviation Brigade were scheduled to fly Friday from St. Cloud, the Minnesota National Guard said.

Christianson, the helicopter pilot, said Texans have been extremely appreciative of all the help, adding that area residents have taken "more food than we could ever eat" to the Sugar Land air base.

"We're just trying to bring all the supplies and equipment that these guys need to set up operations", Bundy said.
