Oklahoma, Texas-USA

OKLAHOMA CITY - Residents in parts of Texas and Oklahoma braced for more storms Wednesday, a day after heavy flooding led to the dramatic rescue of stranded motorists and the death of a teenager.

In central Texas, emergency officials received multiple reports Wednesday of people trapped in fast moving water atop vehicles, on roofs or clinging to trees. Emergency crews responded by land, air and boat.

The Oklahoma City area received about an inch of rain in 24 hours, bringing the city's annual total to 28.03 inches — about 10 inches above normal. The downpour was expected to continue Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. Photo Above: Oklahoma City firefighter Cpl.
