The massive Chinook helicopters have two engines, two sets of rotors and a loading ramp in the back.

The Nebraska National Guard has deployed a 44-person medical team to Texas to provide emergency medical help as part of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The 44-person medical team will join 36 current Nebraska National Guard crew members now working in relief efforts.

The Nebraska National Guard was deployed to Texas nearly a week ago and has since been rescuing survivors, hauling food, water and even 500 pounds of blood to a local hospital.

Once the Chinooks have dropped off supplies, smaller aircraft, trucks or other forms of transportation can ferry the water or food to the places that need it most: hospitals, shelters or temporary military bases. This deployment comes as a response to a request for help from teams in Texas. The National Guard took over a private airport in Brookshire, where they are preparing 8,000 pounds of supplies.

The soldiers will join guardsmen from across the country who are being activated in response to Hurricane Harvey. "This is what we train for".

So far, the Oklahoma Army and Air National Guard has more than 60 soldiers and airmen deployed to Texas in support of relief efforts.

"The Indiana National Guard stands ready and is well prepared to assist in any way needed for our friends in Texas", said Maj.
