Residents Reported Missing in Texas and Oklahoma as New Storms Strike

At least 12 people were reported missing on Monday after floodwaters swept homes, cars and people away in parts of Oklahoma and Texas over the weekend. Making the situation worse, a large area of damaging thunderstorms gathered strength in Central Texas on Monday afternoon, sweeping eastward with time toward Dallas and Oklahoma City.
Among the missing are three members of one family in Wimberley, Texas, according to KIII-TV.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared states of disaster for 24 counties in Texas on Monday morning.
More rain is falling on Monday in some of the areas that were hardest hit by flooding over the weekend, such as the communities of Wimberley and San Marcos, Texas, where the Blanco River transformed from a gentle trickle to raging rapids in a matter of minutes on Sunday.
