Part of Pennsylvania Task Force One is going to Texas.
Forty-five members of the Urban Search and Rescue Task Force left Philadelphia yesterday for an unknown amount of time. The team is highly trained in search and rescue efforts.
The members are taking big rigs, pick up trucks, vans and other equipment with them.
Nearly two-dozen of the first responders are members of the Philadelphia Fire Department. Some parts of the Houston area could get 50 inches of rain over the next couple of days.
