Texas Standard For September 1, 2017

As cleanup crews converge on Houston, just a bit to the east it’s still very much rescue mode. Texas Standard is broadcasting from the heart of the Golden Triangle, where Harvey’s gone but left Beaumont and Orange virtual islands. Emergencies in both cities as a military task force turns a big part of its resources to east Texas: There’s water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink where we are. And another growing shortage: gasoline. Rescuers say they’re running low, travelers stalled along backed up roads are running out – but the problem’s not one of supply. We’ll have the latest. Broadcasting from Beaumont, it’s Texas Standard time.
