ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Authorities say flooding from the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine has killed a second person who was swept away from his pickup truck.
Johnson County Sheriff's Department Capt. Mike Gilbert says a 49-year-old man drowned Wednesday afternoon after being swept away from his truck on a road near a flooded creek in an area between Alvarado and Lillian.
He says the man's body was found about 200 yards from his truck.
The National Weather Service says at least one person died in a vehicle submerged by water from a swollen creek in Killeen, north of Austin. And authorities in Austin say they're searching for a woman whose black Lexus SUV was swept off a road by a swollen creek.
Flooding has also swamped parts of northern Texas, including Arlington, west of Dallas.
