"We want to be as helpful as we can to Texas", Carbo said. "They're coming from all over the United States".

A total 26 people from Colorado and Wyoming left Friday ahead of the storm to assist in rescue and recovery efforts, according to Bill Fortune, Regional Communications Specialist with the American Red Cross.

State and federal officials continue to monitor how the storm and how it will affect Louisiana. "We've been working with these shelters to transport as many pets as possible to APA! and as of Saturday morning, we've transported over 235 animals to our shelter", a statement on the website says.
