Posted: Updated:

Happy Monday, Crossroads. I'm Amber Joseph with your Hometown News Update. 

Ellen surprises the students and staff of Rockport-Fulton High School in Rockport via live shot on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" today.

Last august, the city of Rockport was hit by Hurricane Harvey, wiping out a majority of its homes, schools and businesses. Rockport-Fulton High School, a title 1 school, is the town's only high school and it was left severely damaged with their gym completely destroyed. 

Despite losing so much in the hurricane, the volleyball team came together, along with other students and staff, to clean up their community. 

Then, Ellen surprises the high school with one of the biggest gifts the show has given in 15 seasons. 

Watch the video above for more on the surprise. 

Victoria Police Department's newest force is called the auto crimes task force. Newscenter 25's David Gibson sat down with them to learn more.
