US military sends warships, aircraft to Texas

US military sends warships, aircraft to Texas --'Dual-status command' established | 31 Aug 2017 | With floodwaters from Tropical Storm Harvey swallowing entire Texas cities, the US military is mobilizing its resources from states across the country to help local law enforcement and civilian volunteers in the rescue effort. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has activated the entire Texas National Guard, which is made up of roughly 12,000 troops. State, local and military rescue units have plucked thousands of stranded residents from the water and deluged homes. On Sunday, the Defense Department and Abbott agreed to establish a "dual-status command" that would allow a single commander for both federal and state forces overseeing and coordinating the response efforts.
