New round of flash flooding closes Texas roads

DALLAS - Strong thunderstorms took another swing at North Texas this afternoon. Water rose to the bottom of the windows in a Hico police sergeant's home and flooded a number of other residences in low-lying areas of the town about 100 miles southwest of Dallas.

Hico Mayor Lavern Tooley says the city got hit with some major flooding. There were no reports of injuries. Some highways into the town were still closed this evening.

Heavy rains also temporarily closed roads in Glen Rose.

Meanwhile, the search was suspended for the day for a 26-year-old man missing after his raft flipped on the Trinity River in Fort Worth.

At least 16 people have died since flooding hit the state in mid-June.
