A local businessman has been highlighted in several photos, while in Texas, as he takes part in the rescue mission.

Jason Legnon, owner of Carabella's Bar in New Iberia, is in Texas and is helping in the rescue mission in Texas. Jason was on the front page of Yahoo yesterday and I recently stumbled upon these photos.

You can see in these photos Jason and a friend are navigating through the flood and even helping people evacuate their home.

So many people from our area are currently in Texas helping our neighbors and we proud of ALL OF YOU. Please be safe and continue doing what you do best.

You've all made south Louisiana really proud. Thank You!!
