Two people found dead in Texas floodwaters

Officials say two people have been found dead after their cars were swept away in North Texas floods.

Firefighters in Garland, Texas, found a body inside a submerged Hyundai Elantra early Friday.

Garland fire spokesman Merrill Balanciere says that a search and rescue team was called to the scene about 8:30 a.m., but had to wait for the water to recede before checking the car. The driver's name hasn't been released.

The body of a second person, 33-year-old Sandra Jones, was found downstream from her car in Johnson County west of Fort Worth.

Authorities are still seeking a third person whose car was carried away in a flood in south Fort Worth.

Most of the Dallas-Fort Worth area remains under a flash flood watch, with rain expected to continue.
