A levee near the Rio Grande River in Presidio, Texas, threatens to overflow into the city if the water level rises much more, but the CH-47 Chinook helicopter pilots and crewmembers from Company B "Black Cats," 2nd Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, plan on keeping that from happening. The Black Cats have been dropping oversized sandbags (seen in white) along the levee since Sept. 19 in an effort to keep back the rising waters.
