Survival mode kicks in when confronted with a catastrophe. Thankfully, many people’s thinking isn’t necessarily “every man for himself,” but rather the polar opposite.
Take, for example, the enormous floods that hit Texas last week, putting both humans and animals in grave risk.
Animals in Humble, Texas, near Houston, battled for survival in the face of torrential rainfall. Fortunately, a heroic woman called Devon Horn strove valiantly to help the ailing horse, which was soon succumbing to the floodwaters. The lady swam out to help the horse land while the animal battled to remain afloat.
County crews worked tirelessly to save more than seventy horses in the area during the storms. We’re so amazed by the fearlessness of these workers, and admire them for putting their lives in danger to save these magnificent beings! It’s inspiring to see people going to incredible lengths to save animals!
More than a foot of rain had fallen by Monday evening in parts of Houston, submerging scores of subdivisions and several major interstate highways, forcing the closure of schools and knocking out power to thousands of residents who were urged to shelter in place.
The storms were part of a wide weather system that left warnings and watches through this morning for the Texarkana area, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Tyler-Longview.
