NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (AP) - Authorities are set to resume their
search for two men swept down a central Texas river by floodwaters
fueled by the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine.
New Braunfels police Lt. John Wells said the search would resume
Thursday for 28-year-old Nikos Paraskevopoulos of Alexandria, La.,
and 23-year-old Derek Joel-Nelson Clemens of Baldwin, Mich.
Wells says the men were swimming in the Guadalupe River on
Wednesday when they got caught in a fast-moving current and were
swept over a dam. Clemens was later seen being carried toward an
Interstate 35 overpass.
The search was suspended Wednesday night and will resume at
Remnants of Hermine swamped central and north Texas, causing at
least two deaths.
