No Respite After Fatal U.S. Storms
Many Americans are enduring a horribly wet Memorial Day weekend. After record rainfall and devastating floods in Texas and Oklahoma destroyed hundreds of homes, killing at least three, forecasters are warning folks to brace for more rain. In Austin, torrents washed away 400 homes and two bridges, forcing helicopters to pluck survivors from rooftops. Rescuers continue to seek those caught in the deluge, and shelters are filling quickly. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service warns that rivers are struggling to contain the runoff, and the region remains on alert for flooding.
