Seven people were found dead in the southern US state of Texas after tropical storm Erin swept through, US media reported on Friday.
The storm, which was downgraded to a tropical depression as it made landfall Thursday on the Texas coast, was accompanied by torrential rains that caused massive flooding and made many roads in Houston impassable, the Houston Chronicle said.
Up to 20,000 homes lost power as a result of the storm.
