Eighteen dead and more flooding to come as rains continue over Texas

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Several more inches of rain were expected through the weekend in already soaked Texas and Oklahoma.

The death toll continues to rise in flood-ravaged Texas and Oklahoma and as receding floodwaters revealed mounting destruction, rains continue to threaten even more flooding on Wednesday.

In hard-hit Houston, some of that destruction came Tuesday in the form of a waste water treatment plant so inundated with waters from an overflowing nearby bayou that more than 100,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled out into surrounding floodwaters.

Flash flood warnings were expected through the weekend in Texas, as a storm system that has settled along several southern states brings several more inches of rain.

Hundreds of people were ordered to evacuate flood-threatened areas of Texas on Wednesday as storms bringing torrential rains battered the state, where at least 15 people have been killed in weather-related incidents this week, including six in Houston.

People were told to stay away from more than 200 homes in Parker County where the Brazos River was poised to spill its banks about 30 miles west of Fort Worth on Wednesday night, county officials said.

A rep for KOD confirmed to TMZ that Justin did in fact cash in $75K worth of one dollar bills, and went in as the night carried on. Justin surely isn’t a kid anymore throwing that kind of doe in front of stripping women dancing on poles.

Girl Who Performed At Inaugural Was Gunned Down In Chicago

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

A 15-year-old Chicago girl gunned down a week after she performed during President Obama’s inaugural festivities was remembered Wednesday as a “walking angel” – the last person her family could imagine dying by a bullet.

Hadiya Pendleton was an honor student, a marching-band majorette, and a doting big sister who thought about becoming a journalist or a pharmacist or even getting into politics after she witnessed history in Washington last week.
The biggest trouble the insatiable reader ever gave her parents: running up their credit card buying books on Amazon.

“I couldn’t ask for a better child,” her mother, Cleo Cowley, said through tears at her Chicago home. “She didn’t give me any hard time at all. She had a heart of gold.”

A sophomore at Chicago’s selective King College Prep High School, Pendleton was walking with fellow members of the volleyball team in a park Tuesday afternoon when the skies opened. They ducked under a canopy to get out of the rain, joining other teenagers.

At that moment, Chicago police say, a gunman came running down an alley behind the park, opened fire and then darted into a waiting vehicle and took off. No arrests have been made.
