Boat ride reveals flood devastation in Meyerland area

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Government and volunteer rescuers are continuing to search flooded areas of the Houston area for any stranded residents.

Rescuers on a boat launched a pre-dawn mission Monday covering the notoriously flood-prone Meyerland area.

ABC13's Jeff Ehling, who resides close to Meyerland, rode along with the rescue boat, pointing out homes that have water at their door steps as well as those that were built to prevent the same.

During the mission, the crew encountered folks who were trapped by the four feet of water on roads.
