Nebraska National Guard sends 44 person medical team to Texas

Governor Mark Dayton has approved soldiers from the Minnesota National Guard's 34th Combat Aviation Brigade to support response efforts for Hurricane Harvey. He has led a team of two helicopters that have conducted search-and-rescue missions, supply drops and general support.

The Nebraska National Guard was deployed to Texas nearly a week ago and has since been rescuing survivors, hauling food, water and even 500 pounds of blood to a local hospital. About 30 soldiers, both Army and Air Force, have already been deployed to Texas, so the new deployment is an "exponential" increase, he said. A week ago, historic flooding began across the region, sending the Texas National Guard into high alert.
