Paul Goodloe, a veteran meteorologist for The Weather Channel, was broadcasting from Rockport, Texas when he saw something buried in the rubble — an American flag.
Goodloe interrupted his national broadcast to tend to the battered flag — found in front of the badly damaged high school.
“I can’t let Old Glory just sit here like that,” the meteorologist told viewers. “Make sure this is not a casualty to Hurricane Harvey.”
Mr. Goodloe put down the microphone and asked a member of the crew to help him as he folded the red, white and blue.
It was a deeply moving and patriotic moment in the midst of what has been a very terrible disaster for the state of Texas.
“It’s not a perfect fold, but definitely a rescue from Hurricane Harvey here in Rockport,” Mr. Goodloe said.
It was just fine, sir. Just fine. God speed.
