Rescue operations underway in Houston, hundreds saved


Rescue operations are underway in Houston. Much of the city is struggling to stay afloat.

Some areas have seen 20 inches of rain and officials say that number could quickly double. 

Rescue teams have pulled at least 400 people from the area. Rescuers are using everything from choppers to boats and flat bed trucks to help rescue people. 

If you’d like to donate to the Red Cross response effort and help victims, you can call 1-800-RED CROSS.
