Hurricane Dolly Hits Texas

Dolly pours rain on San Benito, Texas in the southernmost tip of the state.

A 16 member Emergency Response Strike Team from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has entered into Dolly Territory since the hurricane smashed its way through South Texas on Wednesday afternoon, flooding streets, snapping trees and downing power lines, leaving more than 152,000 residents without electricity. Equipped with a mobile command post, a Lab/GIS trailer, and a communications trailer, the team has deployed to the Rio Grande Valley to assist with damage assessment.
