United States of America PHOTOs-Huge Flooding in Texas Causes Death

Memorial Day weekend tragedy as woman drowns and 100 are rescued after 10 inches of rain falls on San Antonio in just 8 hours

By Daily Mail UK, 25 May 2013

One woman, 29, has died after a massive Memorial Day weekend storm brought up to 10 inches of rain in San Antonio.

Massive flooding was reported on Saturday across South Texas as emergency crews scrambled to rescue one hundred residents in flood prone areas.

As many as 13,000 San Antonio residents were without power on Saturday morning but officials believe electricity has been restored to many, leaving 2,000 now without power.

Police say the woman who died was driving when waters rushed upon the road and washed her car away.
She tried to escape the vehicle and is believed to have been waiting on the roof of the car when she was swept away by the rising waters.

Her vehicle was found pushed against a drainage culture, KSAT-TV reported.

Officials from the local fire department said the woman, whose identity was not released, was dead when they arrived.
Rains began on Friday evening and have been falling at a rate of nearly 2 inches per hour for the past 8 hours.

Officials have closed numerous roadways across South Texas due to flash flooding.
Weather officials warned the heavy rain could be a 'life-threatening' situation similar to a 1998 flood - when two dozen people dead, according to the National Weather Service.

Public transit spokeswoman Priscilla Ingle told the NWS how firefighters used a boat to reach a public bus that had become stranded, rescuing three passengers and driver early on Saturday.
San Antonio Fire Department spokesman Christian Bove said 'since 5:25 this morning, we've received at least 70 calls just for water rescues. We're urging the public just to stay home and stay off the road.'

Local media reported another man, in the flood-prone Olmos Park area, was standing on the roof of a structure to escape the rising waters.
Firefighters managed to reach him in a rescue boat.

The National Weather Service extended the flash flood warning for Bexar Country and surrounding counties until 3:30pm on Saturday.

Mayor Julian Castro urged San Antonians to stay home.
'Despite a break in the rain, many roads throughout the city continue to be impassable and dangerous. We ask San Antonians to please stay off the roads and stay at home,' he said.

'Just because it's not raining at the moment, does not mean that the threat has passed. If you must drive, observe all low-water crossings and use common sense.'
The San Antonio International Airport remained open on Saturday though spokesman Nora Castro told The San Antonio Express News many flights had been cancelled or were delayed.

Though Memorial Day weekend is typically a celebration of summer, many parts of the country will be experiencing unseasonably cold temperatures.

Forecasters have suggested parts of the Northeast, including parts of northern Maine, New York, New Hampshire and Vermont, could even experience snow.
