Hundreds of Guard, Reserve and Active Duty airmen have deployed for Hurricane Harvey relief in Texas and Louisiana, carrying aid, rescue helicopters, and other equipment to help with the massive search and rescue effort.
The storm moved on from Houston, hitting additional cities in Texas and moving toward Louisiana on Wednesday. The storm is expected to reduce intensity to a tropical depression by Thursday morning, but heavy rainfall is expected to linger, according to CNN.
Air Force aircraft and crews have been flowing in this week. The response includes two HC-130Js, three HH-60Gs and 120 personnel from the 41st, 38th, and 71st Rescue Squadrons from Moody AFB, Ga., deploying to College Station, Texas.
Two C-17s from JB Charleston, S.C., carried 30.6 tons of relief supplies to Alexandria, La., on Tuesday. Members of the 14th, 15th, and 16th Airlift Squadrons launched to carry relief cargo and support personnel, according to an Air Force statement.
