With barely two days rest, College Station-based Texas Task Force 1 on Sunday deployed its assets back to rain-soaked areas in north-central Texas that may face additional flooding.
Two TX-TF1 swiftwater rescue squads (a total of 11 task force members) are headed to Eastland County, while another two squads (a total of 15 members) are destined for Parker County.
Task force leaders are prepared for the deployment to continue through the end of the week, as the National Weather Service believes additional heavy rains will fall on these already-flooded areas beginning Monday.
