Texas Sen. John Cornyn addressed the Senate in Washington, D.C. about the tragedy earlier today:
“I have come to the floor to ask for another prayer for the small town of West, Texas…

“We're seeing the resilience of a tight-knit, self-sufficient community in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy. Businesses have reportedly stayed open throughout the night and neighbors have opened their doors to help support the victims.

“As is so often the case, ordinary citizens ran toward danger as they offered assistance. One resident loaded up his car with people and made three successive trips to the hospital. And this morning as I was waking up and watching the news, I saw one gentleman who said he made multiple trips into the nursing home to take nursing home residents who were not able to walk out themselves to bring them to safety.

“As one police officer at the scene said, ‘the people of West will not let a person stand out in the rain.’

“We, of course, grieve for those who have lost their lives, and we pray for those who were injured and still missing. So I ask that all Americans keep the people of West, Texas, in their thoughts and prayers.”
