SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Search teams have recovered the bodies of two
men missing in Texas floodwaters, bringing the death toll caused by
the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine to six.
Authorities on Friday found the bodies of a 28-year-old
Louisiana man swept away in the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels,
and a 57-year-old father who drove into a swollen San Antonio creek
despite his wife telling him not to risk it.
At least one woman who disappeared in heavy flooding still
remains missing. Authorities in Austin are searching for a woman
who drove around a police barricade and into a fast-moving creek
Hermine caused relatively few problems when it made landfall as
a tropical storm Monday night, but its drenching remnants led to
more than 100 high-water rescues.
