Houston Pastor Searches Flooded Cars

KPRC’s Sara Donchey originally tweeted a photo of the Houston pastor who waded out into dark 4-feet-deep flood waters to search waterlogged vehicles for survivors. These photos were captured by Police Constable Brian Roberson Jr.. Keep in mind, most of these flood waters are not still or stagnant. There are unseen currents, open manholes, and invisible hazards beneath the murky surface. This water is continually moving, often in unpredictable directions. This man is risking his life.

Thankfully, the pastor – who as yet remains anonymous – found no one inside these vehicles. Whoever was driving them likely fled as soon as their car stalled, and hopefully made it to higher ground and back to their families.

These searches – through vehicles, homes, businesses, and even trees – continue as some areas see increased flooding and others mercifully begin to recede.
