Glasgow nurse returns home from Hurricane Harvey Relief

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Marguerite McBride flew into the Houston disaster just days after Hurricane Harvey made landfall. She was there to relieve nurses and help out as much as needed. She worked for multiple hours and in medical departments she was unfamiliar with.

"There's just so much to process," she told us. She has just gotten back from her trip in Houston, and shared the experiences with us.

"It was sad, tragic, and hopeful, and such a blessing."

She spoke on the tragedy of people coming home to nothing, yet, the willingness of people to help. It moved her to tears. She even told us about what the after effects would be for years to come.

"​So may people will be dealing with post traumatic stress, just from having to be evacuate, so many people who evacuated, (and) coming home to flood waters and there homes just being destroyed."

McBride's perspective on bad days has been changed, and she has seen hope in tragedy in her time at Texas.

McBride does not know if she will be called to go to Irma, but if she does, she will go without any second thoughts.
