Searchers and dog teams will look for victims in the storm debris in Galveston and in Chambers County.

The search will begin in Galveston today, and then move to Chambers County over the weekend. The Chambers County judge has been asking for help from the governor's office since day one. He says he's confused by the delay.

"I don't have a clue why it is taking so long," said Chambers County Judge Jimmy Sylvia. "You know, it really should be Galveston County pushing because those are Galveston County folks that would be up here in my county."

State Representative Craig Eiland says the delay is something that will have to be investigated.
