Flooding from Tropical Storm Harvey has engulfed thousands of homes in Texas, and even more of the area could be under water after a levee breached south of Houston, CNN reported Tuesday. More than 3,500 people have been rescued from Brazoria County, which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and Houston and has been hardest hit by the storm that peaked as a Category 4 hurricane.

The devastating storm has been terrifying for people whose lives were at stake but has also been a source of incredible stories of human courage. On Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” TheBlaze’s Jason Buttrill called in from Houston to share stories from the flood.

“I’m just really impressed with everything we’ve seen so far,” he said of the volunteers from around the country who showed up in huge numbers to help.

People are doing their best to let search-and-rescue teams do their work.

“There’s been no vehicles going south toward Houston at all except for Good Samaritans and other private organizations … with [rescue] boats,” Jason said. “It really is amazing. People are awesome.”

Glenn Beck specifically wanted to praise the private citizens brave enough to help.

“Look at what just the average citizen is doing: ‘I got a boat. I’m going down.’ And they’re going down, and they’re rescuing people,” Glenn said.
