Coast Guard Rescues 15 People In Distress Near Port Aransas”

Hahn says the Port of Brownsville reopened Saturday morning and they haven't yet been able to assess the Port of Victoria.

Hahn also says that since Corpus Christi is the third largest petrochemical port in the nation, there is the potential for chemical and crude oil spills, so they'll be watching for that, according to the AP.

But apparently some decided not to heed the message: The Coast Guard rescued a total of 32 people from Texas waters between Friday and Saturday, the New York Times reported.

Kevin Oditt says helicopters have rescued more than 100 people in the Houston area as Tropical Storm Harvey floods numerous neighborhoods.

The Coast Guard received the distress calls from people aboard the vessels Sabine Pass, Sandy Point and Signet Enterprise. All 12 people were reported to be in stable condition with no injuries, the Coast Guard said.

A Coast Guard Air Station Corpus Christi MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew responded to the scene and pulled the people to safety.

The Coast Guard closed the Port of Houston on Friday.

Harvey was a fierce Category 4 hurricane when it struck land on Friday night.
