NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Air National Guard is heading to Texas and Louisiana, bringing aircraft, vessels and manpower to respond to Hurricane Harvey.
Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday he deployed the emergency personnel to aid the recovery effort.

Rescue teams, maintenance and support staff from the 106th Rescue Wing of the New York Air National Guard is responding, along with three rescue helicopters, a rescue plane and several boats and watercraft.

Harvey arrived on land in Texas Friday night as a Category 4 hurricane before being downgraded to a tropical storm. It further weakened while moving inland.

Heavy rains are resulting in major flooding that is expected to cause dangerous conditions for the millions of people who live in the storm's path, particular in and around Houston.
