Flood–pets and great people

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.
