Nebraska Task Force 1 — an urban search and rescue team — has had boots to the ground in the Houston area since the weekend.

The group of  firefighters and civilians has made 350 rescues.

Today, the group staged on Interstate 10 in Katy, Texas.

Other states have sent teams as well, and FEMA is now asking for additional Nebraska Task Force 1 members to head to Texas to help.

No decision has been made yet about whether additional members will be sent.
