With Hurricane Harvey leaving much of the Houston area flooded and many residents stranded in their homes or elsewhere, local sports radio host John P. Lopez has found a way to help.

On Tuesday morning, Lopez (whose home remains above water) began asking on Twitter for a boat he could use to rescue people stranded in flooded areas. He said he had extensive boating experience but that his boat was in a different part of the state, 100 miles away.

Eventually, Lopez found someone with a boat and set out to rescue people in his hometown of Walden, Texas.

Lopez then tweeted a video of him captaining the boat through a brutally flooded street in Walden, asking anyone in the area in need of help to message him with their address.

Lopez, who hosts a show called In The Loop weekdays on SportsRadio 610 in Houston, seems to be really going above and beyond here. The scale of the flooding in Houston is tough to even fathom, and hopefully Lopez can make a small difference for those in his neighborhood.

We’ll update this post if Lopez tweets any more about his rescue efforts.

UDATE: It looks like Lopez had a quite successful day.
