Northwest Texas Hospital Helping Out

Northwest Texas Hospital is helping people in east Texas prepare for Gustav to hit land. A medical crew of four met Thursday afternoon, getting ready to head out to Beaumont, TX near the border of Texas and Louisiana.

The crew will go down with medical supplies and will be on call in that area to transport special needs patients if necessary.

Northwest Texas Hospital deployed their helicopter earlier Thursday morning headed to Houston, then it's expected to land in Beaumont around 9:30 Thursday night.
