Charles Cockerham, a Vietnam War veteran, waits for an electric line crew to finish work on Friday, Sept. 20, 2019, in the Mauriceville, Texas, area. Floodwaters are starting to recede in most of the Houston area after the remnants of Tropical Storm Imelda flooded parts of Texas. Cockerham drove a pair of workers through chest-deep water, and they dismounted and walked at least 100 yards to a customer's house to try to restore their power. "I was in the same predicament 3 years ago in Louisiana," Cockerham said. "I go out of my way to try to return the favor." (Jon Shapley/Houston Chronicle via AP)

The governors of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama asked months ago for US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to declare a fisheries disaster, making federal grants available to affected people.
