12 missing after flooding in Texas sweeps away vacation home

Laura McComb and her two children Andrew, 6, and Leighton, 4, are among 12 people still missing following flash floods near Wimberley, Texas, over Memorial Day weekend.

A Texas mother made one final, frantic phone call as her vacation home was being swept away by flash flood waters on the Blanco River on Sunday night.

‘I’m in a house. I’m floating down the river. Tell mom and dad. I love you, and pray,’ 33-year-old Laura McComb told her sister, according to KXAN-TV.

Mrs McComb and her two children Andrew, 6, and Leighton, 4, are among 12 people still missing following flash floods near the popular vacation spot of Wimberley over Memorial Day weekend.

Trey Hatt, a spokesman for the Hays County Emergency Operations Center, said Monday night that the ‘search component’ of the mission was over, meaning no more survivors were expected to be found in the flood debris. The recovery mission resumed this morning.

Three people have been found dead today in Houston after torrential rains Monday night caused historic flash floods in Houston – bringing the confirmed death toll from the holiday weekend to 11.
