National Guard troops being deployed in Texas: governor

National Guard troops being deployed in Texas: governor

In addition to the briefing, Governor Abbott and President Trump were joined by federal, state, and local officials to continue discussion to improve coordination of resources and response efforts.

Following the visit to Corpus Christi, Governor Abbott and President Trump returned to the Texas State Operations Center (SOC) in Austin to receive an extensive briefing on the current status of the storm and the recovery effort.

"It's important that we remember that the greatest power that exists is the power of God, and the way that God can touch and move all of our lives", Abbott said. Yet, Abbot said he thinks Congress will come up with more money for Harvey recovery than other recent mega storms.

Abbott signed the proclamation to cheers from the crowd before inviting Pence to speak. "You're going to see very rapid action from Congress". Sign up for free news alerts from WND.com, America's independent news network.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GREG ABBOTT, Governor of Texas, pursuant to the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim Sunday, September 3, 2017, as a Day of Prayer in Texas. "We will pray for everyone regardless of your church, your faith or your background".

"There is no storm as tough as the people of Texas", Abbott said.

Since they started training with the Texas Army National Guard in 1995, Singapore's Air Force wanted to do their part to help.

In 2005 after the storm, Mexico sent their troops into the United States for the first time since the Mexican-American war in 1846, where, for three weeks, they rescued stranded storm victims, provided meals and supplies and offered medical care. "We will pray for the future of this state and country and for healing and hope and for rebuilding this great state for the next generation of Texans".
