Notes on radio reports for which I haven’t found stories to include here (RJN).
—Suppose you were offered rescue in a flood but would have to leave your dogs, cats, birds behind. So hard! Some people have refused rescue and died with their pets. That’s why the Texas legislature is considering a law requiring rescuers to take animals. Think of all the problems in the arenas and other rescue centers!
–A family whose house was safe from flooding looked at their snorkel-equipped jeep with their inflatable kayak and said, “Why not?” With this special equipment, they went to a village for the elderly. At a house their jeep could not approach, they took the kayak in and brought out a couple. The man had had recent heart surgery. They went on to make 14 more pick-ups.
