WESLACO, Texas – Arkansas Baptist disaster relief (DR) teams have been hard at work in Weslaco, Texas after major flooding in June. About 15 inches of rain fell within a 36-hour period, requiring more than 200 rescues.

“Homes had two to four feet of water in them,” said Jimmy Blackford, unit leader for the Tri-County Association DR team. “This means everything they own is ruined with very little able to be savaged.”
