Longhorn legend Vince Young is pleading with Texans to heed local officials warnings during tropical storm Harvey after his family evacuated.

The former Texas quarterback posted a photo on his Instagram account Tuesday taken by his mother which showed floodwater covering a street. In the photo caption, Young wrote, “Thanks you to the city of Houston and our National Coast Guard for rescuing my family and the families of others!”

Young tagged the location of the post in Sealy, a town west of Houston. Southeast Texas has been inundated with heavy rainfall since Harvey made landfall near Rockport late Friday as a category 4 hurricane. Though the storm has since downgraded to a tropical storm, rain continues to pummel the greater Houston area leading to historic flooding and evacuations in some spots.

He ended his post by telling his fans he would “see everybody shortly with team help!!!”
