Hours after the deadly Oklahoma tornado, Texas Task Force 1 was mobilized by FEMA.

A team of 80 urban search and rescue members, along with five search and rescue canines and their handlers, departed from TEEX in College Station Monday around midnight.

The team got to Oklahoma early this morning to get their assignment and help assist in any way needed.

They have enough gear to be self sufficient for 72 hours. They'll stay as long as needed.
