Salvation Army Deploys To Texas City

As the pictures start coming in from the Texas coast, it's becoming clear just how much help is needed down there.  The Salvation Army in Tyler deployed 23 canteens and communication vehicles to Texas City Sunday afternoon.  It's one of the most devastated areas, and the Salvation Army says it will be there as long as it's needed.  

"We have to bring whatever supplies we have on hand," said Salvation Army Canteen Liaison Sergeant David Craddock.  "We have to make sure we pick up the supplies from the areas we are staging, and then when we get there we hope are own personall from around the state have enough food and water, things we need to continue our mission."  The disaster relief team that left Sunday will stay for two weeks.  A new team will then come in and relieve them.
