Houston flood victim grateful for Uvalde man
It didn’t take more than watching The Weather Channel for Russell Furnace of Uvalde to launch a two-man rescue mission.
Between last Sunday and Wednesday Furnace and his brother, Justin Furnace, rescued more than 1,000 Houston area residents, many who were elderly or disabled. On Thursday, 83-year-old Minjo McKinny phoned the Uvalde Leader-News to express gratitude.
“I felt that his hometown should know he is a hero,” McKinny said.
McKinny, along with two others, was rescued from the second story of her brother’s Houston residence on Monday afternoon.
