The disaster in south Texas has the rest of the state doing everything it can to help. The City of Abilene teamed up with numerous agencies, including the Abilene Police Department and Fire to assist with clean-up in effected areas.

Even though Abilene has brought back their cleaning troops, the process is far from over.

Abilene's City Manager Robert Hanna issued a statement saying:

"This will be one of the most devastating storms in Texas history, and the State Office of Emergency Management is calling upon local governments to assist in the response and recovery of this storm."
