Massive storms bring flooding, tornadoes to Texas and Oklahoma

Tuesday morning reports indicate that this storm and the resulting floods and tornadoes have killed 19 people: four in Oklahoma, two in Texas, and another thirteen dead in Mexico after a tornado that sprang forth from the same weather system. Other possible victims are unaccounted for along the storm’s path. One of the victims in Texas was an 18-year-old girl whose car was swept off the roadway by a massive water wall as she traveled home from her senior prom.
