Austin Firefighters Save Dog From Floodwaters
The Austin Fire Department has been battling widespread flooding after a fall storm dumped up to 15 inches of rain over parts of central Texas.

Crews have been assisting with flood relief efforts as entire neighborhoods were evacuated to avoid rapidly rising rivers. This touching photo, taken by photographer Preston Culver, shows Firefighters Matt Harvey and Michael Cooper rescuing a dog from the floodwaters.

The image was posted to the department's Facebook page on Thursday, shining some well-deserved light on those at the front lines of disaster relief. Spokesperson Michelle Tanzola told The Huffington Post the rescuers' efforts are emblematic of the department's motto, "Our Mission Goes Beyond Our Name," and we'd have to agree.
