HOUSTON (KIAH) The recovery continues for more than 15-hundred local bats that were recovered after the freeze.

The bats suffered hypothermic shock.

Many of them have been placed in warming boxes and incubators at the Humane Society.

Rescuers hope to release them back into the wild, later Wednesday around 5:30 p.m. at the Waugh Bridge Bat Colony, located at Buffalo Bayou Park.
