Tropical Storm Imelda doused the Houston area in rain this week, with a reported 43.15 inches of rainfall in Jefferson County alone, causing extensive flooding and state of disaster declarations from Texas Governor Greg Abbot for 13 counties.

Floods caused by Imelda’s pouring rain left numerous Texans stranded in high waters.

Over 50 of those marooned residents happened to be horses. According to KHOU, more than 50 horses at Cypress Trails Equestrian Center in Harris County, Texas, found themselves caught in chest-high floodwaters on Thursday.

Luckily, the horses didn’t stay stuck for long; a group of volunteer rescuers swam through the waters to reach the horses and lead the animals to higher ground.

The difficult task was made even more challenging by the currents from nearby Cypress Creek that were running through the floodwaters on the property, according to KHOU.

Zach Karrenbrock recorded video of the rescue, and told the station that all of the animals were moved to higher ground and then later transported to a safe location. As far as Karrenbrock knows, none of the horses were injured by the storm.

Bahamas Prime Minister says 600 people are still missing weeks after Hurricane Dorian .
Nearly a month after Hurricane Dorian pulverized part of the Bahamas, officials say there are still 600 people missing. Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said Friday the number of those missing has significantly dropped in the past weeks and the death toll has risen. Earlier figures released by the government indicated that about 1,300 people were unaccounted for. The official death toll across the Bahamas stands at 56, Minnis said. Dorian flattened homes after it made landfall Sept. 1, leaving thousands with no power, running water and a widespread damage similar to a war zone.
