Beverly, Massachusetts-Based FEMA Team Prepares to Respond to Hurricane Harvey

Many roads in and around Houston are flooded. "Obviously, Texas is a very large state, and as far as the destruction, we only know what we've seen on TV and what's been broadcast over the air", he said.

The rising water chased thousands of people to rooftops or higher ground and overwhelmed rescuers who could not keep up with the constant calls for help.

"I was at my kids' baseball games, so I had to tell them goodbye, and they finished their games, and I came and packed and got here real quick", said Beikes. "They're what I call typical Texans".

Houston proper has a population of 2.3 million people, but the greater metropolitan area has more than six million.

Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the Mexican consul general in Austin, also said he's been in constant touch with Abbott's office about how he can help.

"The breadth and intensity of this rainfall are beyond anything experienced before", the National Weather Service said on Twitter.

Volunteers joined emergency teams to pull people from their homes or from the water.

The team is equipped with boats, motors, rope tools, and rescue equipment for collapsed buildings, as well as 72 hours worth of food.

"There is no doubt that Hurricane Harvey is creating a temporary housing emergency in the state of Texas", said Governor Abbott.

"Some people have not been to sleep because they have been anxious about just that very thing, waking up and water is in the house", said Pradia. Most deployed overnight and many more are on standby to leave. Plano's Director of Emergency Management, Carrie Reyes, deployed at the state's request to South Texas to assist with command and control.

"This disaster's going to be a landmark event", Long said.

They say the hard work begins in the days after natural disasters hit.
