HOUSTON (AP) - At least two people died as their vehicles were swept into flood waters in the storms across Texas this weekend.
In Houston, authorities say 47-year-old Cassandra Bryant of Harris County drowned Friday night after her car sunk in a retention pond. Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva tells the Houston Chronicle that Bryant was backing up to avoid a flooded road when she went over a curb and floated into the pond.
In Midland, police tell the Midland Reporter-Telegram that a 46-year-old Teresa Townsend of Midland was found dead in her submerged car after Friday's storms.
The rainfall also affected the search for a 17-year-old from Cuero who went missing Friday while swimming the Guadalupe River. The DeWitt County sheriff said Sunday that the search is in recovery mode.
