Members of Task Force Bowie provide food, water and ice to Beaumont residents at Parkdale Mall in Beaumont on Thursday Sept. 29, 2005. The task force was assembled with members from San Antonio, Grand Prairie and Terrell. Although many stores had made huge leaps to open and provide residents with needed supplies days earlier, it was the first day FEMA had arrived to feed people at Parkdale Mall in Beaumont.
