TULSA, Okla. — Several Tulsa firefighters arrived in Louisiana on Sept. 14 to help with Hurricane Sally.

TFD officials said they have 35 rescue techs, three K-9's, five boats and more capabilities with them at the local rec center. Hurricane Sally appears to be heading more east, so TFD said they are not sure if they will stay in Louisiana or move onto another state to help with efforts.

TFD shared a video on Twitter early Monday morning showing the crew leaving.

The team is going to Baton Rouge and then New Orleans, where flooding is expected.
