10,000-Plus Can Thank Coast Guard for Their Rescue

The U.S. Coast Guard is working with federal, state, and local responders on active search and rescue in flood-impacted areas of Texas and Louisiana.

The Coast Guard has saved 10,618 lives and 1,429 pets -- and counting.

The service has deployed an additional 1,050 active duty, reserve and civilian personnel along with 22 cutters, 37 helicopters, six airplanes and 102 shallow water vessels to assist in response efforts, and to augment the 4,300 Coast Guard personnel stationed within the impacted area.
