Hermine death toll climbs to 6 as 2 bodies found

Mass Casualties Posted on

The bodies of two men found Friday in swollen Texas waterways pushed the death toll caused by remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine to six, while a scaled-back search resumed for another woman swept away in flooding caused by a record drenching.

Five people in Texas and one in Oklahoma have died in flooding caused by Hermine, which proved more deadly and devastating this week while dissolving over land than it did after coming ashore in Mexico on Monday.

Hermine's weakening march north through Texas flooded homes, set off tornadoes and led to more than 100 high-water rescues. Only one search continued Friday — for an Austin woman who drove around a police barricade and into a fast-moving creek Tuesday night.

Divers were pulled from the search for the woman, who disappeared after her sport utility vehicle was washed down swollen Bull Creek, said Austin fire Lt. Josh Portie.
