Texas Flooding

Rapidly Rising Texas Flood Claims Life of Woman, 4 Grandchildren

An East Texas woman and her four grandchildren were found dead after a flash flood caused by more torrential rains in an already water-logged region. The 64-year-old grandmother was apparently attempting to escape the rapidly rising flood waters with her four grandchildren. The flooding was caused by yet another massive Texas rainfall.
