Rafters Missing in Texas on Swollen Trinity River due to Flood Rains

The torrential rains and flooding have taken their tole in the Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas areas. They have been responsible for several deaths as well as a missing 26 year old rafter whose raft capsized on the flood swollen Trinity River in Texas.

The sky was mercifully clear over much of Texas on Saturday after three weeks of drenching rain, as search teams combed the swollen Trinity River for a missing rafter.

The death toll from storms that have battered Texas since last month climbed to 15 with the recovery of two other flood victims elsewhere in the state.

The 26-year-old missing man was on a rubber raft that capsized Friday on the Trinity.

“We don’t know if he’s still trapped in that low-head dam or whether he went downstream,” Fort Worth fire department spokesman Kent Worley said.

A companion had to swim about 300 yards against the swift current to safety, but Worley said that man never saw his friend after their raft flipped. Neither men wore a life jacket. (AP)
