Rescuers have tried for nearly three days to get in to find out how Bolivar Peninsula residents fared during the massive storm. They finally got their first look at the beach resort community Monday.

Scott McKinney of the Sacramento Metro Fire Department said a search-and-rescue team found 60 residents. So far, they've found no dead.

The team plans to keep searching for the next few hours, but believes the search should be wrapped up on Tuesday. Many of the community's 30,000 residents evacuated as the storm closed in on the Texas coast.
