Hurricanes bring Houston and Jacksonville fans together

- From the tailgate to inside NRG Stadium, Texans fans headed out Sunday to watch the first home game of the regular season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"I'm just coming here to visit for the game, die hard Jaguar fan," says Eric Campbell. Campbell flew into town from Florida just for the game. He is keeping up with what's happening with Irma as much as he can.

He says, "all you can do is watch it happen and hope for the best."

Larry and Seth Pointe also flew in for the game, but from Los Angeles. Both die hard Jaguar fans. While in line for concessions they met a Houston fan, suffering loss from Harvey.

"It's all about people, keeping people safe," says Larry Pointe.

"I was hit by Hurricane Harvey also, so we are all out here and that's a good thing," says Houston native James Jackson III.

The group was able to come together and talk about what happened and offer encouragement to each other.

"Good luck out there," says A.J. Medina. His dad Tony says, "it's unfortunate but I believe the storm will make us stronger, more bonded together."

"I hope everybody is safe back in Jacksonville, prayers go out to them," says Campbell.
