FREEPORT, Texas (AP) - The Coast Guard says three kayakers has been treated and released after being caught in storms and high waves in the Gulf of Mexico off Freeport.

Two kayakers were rescued Friday morning about one-half mile off the mouth of the Brazos River. The third man reached shore on his own.

A Coast Guard rescue boat crew was dispatched, amid 6-foot waves, after a person on shore summoned help for the three kayakers.

Rescuers found one man clinging to the side of his kayak, while another man was still on his kayak. Rescuers provided medical care and transported the pair to shore. A third kayaker was located on shore and treated by emergency personnel.

Forecasters issued a coastal flood advisory for the Freeport area from Friday night to early Saturday.
