Extreme Weather Kills At Least 17 in TX, OK and Mexico

Extreme weather in Texas, Oklahoma and across the border in Mexico has killed at least 17 people. In the Mexican border city of Ciudad Acuña, 13 people were killed when a tornado wrecked homes and slammed cars against buildings. In Texas and Oklahoma, storms and record-setting floods have killed at least four people while 12 remain missing. Ken Bell, emergency management coordinator for San Marcos, Texas, said the flooding is the worst the region has ever seen.

Ken Bell: “It’s the largest flood in the history of this region. So, it’s significant in its impact. It is different than any flood we’ve ever had.”
