Galveston County, Texas – Catastrophic and historic flooding overnight in Southeast Texas has left thousands of people in need of rescue.

The City of Texas City has set up an emergency evacuation shelter at the Sanders Vincent Community Center located at 501 4th Avenue North and requested assistance from The Salvation Army to provide food and comfort for survivors and first responders. The Galveston Food Bank is delivering water. In a robocall to citizens, Texas City officials told residents to call 409-739-4799 for assistance.  In Galveston, a mobile canteen will be on the streets as needed. As of 6:00 pm Saturday, the only shelter on the island was at The Salvation Army Center of Hope at 601 51st Street.
