SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) – Authorities say a dozen people are missing after flash flooding along the Blanco River in Central Texas that damaged hundreds of homes.
Kristi Wyatt, a spokeswoman for the city of San Marcos, said Monday that 12 people are now missing after the flooding Sunday, when three people were reported missing. Wyatt says she didn’t immediately have more information.
Former Nueces County Commissioner Joe McComb says his son’s wife and their two children are among the missing.
McComb tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that his 36-year-old son, Jonathan, is hospitalized in San Antonio with multiple injuries after a house he was staying at was knocked off its foundation and carried down the raging river Sunday. It struck a bridge and then began breaking up.
The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd says five members of two families from the Corpus Christi church also were in the house and are missing.
