Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton said his immediate family is safe, but he has two cousins waiting for help as flood waters from Hurricane Harvey continue to rise in Texas.

“They’re in the second story right now waiting to get rescued,” Dalton said. “I just found that out a little bit ago. My immediate family has water on the streets but nothing has gotten in their house. I’ve got an uncle that his house got flooded and he lost his car.”

Dalton is one of 14 Texas natives on the Bengals roster, six of which are from the Houston area, including wide receiver Brandon LaFell, safety George Iloka, kicker Randy Bullock, cornerback William Jackson and offensive linemen Trey Hopkins and Eric Winston.

“The thing that’s tough for my uncle is that his house got flooded and there’s a lot of stuff that was my grandparents and they’re going to end up losing it,” Dalton said. “But luckily everybody is safe.”

Ohio Task Force 1 and our Gabrielle Enright are based out of Dalton’s old high school in Katy, Texas.
