HUMBLE, TX (WAFB) - WAFB's Kiran Chawla and Rick Portier are embedded with the group "Cajun Navy 2016."

The Cajun Navy, a group of volunteer rescuers from Louisiana, got their training during the state's historic flood last fall. Now, the same group is in Texas saving people and pets.

As the group headed out to rescue people in Humble, Texas, about 30 miles northeast from Houston, the water was rising before their eyes.

Their monitor showed them the water is five and a half feet deep on the roadway as they passed house after house inundated with flood water. The group, from Plaquemine and Denham Springs, was able to rescue seven dogs from one house.

All the dogs were successfully rescued from the house, and the homeowner was beyond grateful.
