Floods rip through Fort Worth suburb

Breaking Earth News

HALTOM CITY, Texas - Heavy rain caused rapidly rising floodwaters at two mobile home parks before daybreak Monday, forcing families to their rooftops and dragging away a 4-year-old girl, authorities said.

The waters unleashed by an overnight storm flooded about 100 mobile homes along a flood-prone creek in Haltom City, washing many from their foundations, emergency officials said.

The pre-dawn flood in this Fort Worth suburb left confusion as neighbors gathered in children from other families fleeing the flood, making it hard to account for all, he said.
