EAST TEXAS (KSLA) - Count 'em: 1, 2, 3 ...

Almost a dozen trucks loaded with rolls and bales of hay.

That's how much East Texas farmers and ranchers collected in about three days.

Under police escort, a convoy from Panola and Harrison counties then headed south Thursday to help livestock owners in areas flooded by Hurricane Harvey.

"This is what happens when we pull together for a great cause," says a Facebook post by the Panola County Sheriff's Office.

Hours later, it was delivered with a promise of more.
