BEAUMONT/LIBERTY, Texas (FOX 26) - The road to recovery will be a long one for the Texas coast. Although the need for rescue efforts is starting to decrease, the need for food and water remains steady, especially in the cities of Beaumont and Liberty. FOX 26 was invited on board a military aircraft to witness some heroes in action.
We were invited on board a Chinook helicopter to witness the National Guard load up supplies, and then distribute them in Beaumont and Liberty. Liberty resident Maggie King was nearly moved to tears when she saw the supplies coming in. "There's people here that's lost everything, and there's shelters that are needing food and water and stuff, and we've been seeing people throughout social media looking for food and water and all kinds of clothes and everything that you could possibly imagine."
