Posted October 13, 2019 08:18:18 Houston truckers have been forced to wait weeks for more than 100 trucks that will be unloaded from the city’s truck terminals to be transported to their destinations.
The trucks are being moved by a team of more than a dozen volunteers, some of whom are already on the road, while others will be in Houston to pick up and deliver the containers to their homes.
The Houston Chronicle reports that a truck from the National Guard was the first to be unloaded Thursday.
It was unclear how many trucks were waiting to be loaded, but the Chronicle says the first shipment of trucks is expected to arrive Friday.
Houston-area residents were encouraged to stay in their homes during the storm and to take precautions to protect themselves.

The Texas Department of Transportation says it is helping to ensure the trucks can be unloaded quickly in Houston and that trucks can safely leave Houston.
