Hermine Floods Parts of Texas, Heads North

Ad Feedback

BELTON, Texas -- Flood warnings were put in place Wednesday across Texas as remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine slowly moved through the state.

Some places have seen more than a foot of rain, causing creeks and rivers to overflow.

Flashflooding has killed at least two people, and more than 100 have been rescued from high waters.

Floodwaters caught one local woman's family off guard.

"They didn't have no warning, no nothing that it was going to flood," she said. "They said within five minutes, they came out their door, they were all full of water and some of them barely got their cars out and barely get out of their homes."

Rescue workers have geared up for more rescues across the region because forecasters said that remnants from Hermine, which has been downgraded to a tropical depression, could spread.

Meanwhile, the remnants of the storm have been drenching Oklahoma, and flood watches are now in effect for Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas.
