Fresh flooding renews misery
DALLAS — A new round of flooding swamped parts of Texas, leading officials in one county to declare a fresh disaster area in the hard-hit Plains.
Smith County officials made a disaster declaration Sunday night, asking for state and federal aid. They say flooding has caused about $200,000 worth of damage to their eastern Texas county.
“We still have areas that are dangerous,” county Commissioner Bill McGinnis told KLTV of Tyler. “We have barricaded those off. We beg people not to go around those barricades because it is just so extremely dangerous to do that.”
The search for a 26-year-old man missing since his raft capsized on the rain-swollen Trinity River near Fort Worth resumed yesterday morning, said Kent Worley, spokesman for the Fort Worth Fire Department.
Teams had shifted their search from a rescue mission to a recovery, Mr. Worley said.
“The water has gone down, but it’s still fairly swift. It’s still fairly rapid,” he said.
In central Texas, some homes in low-lying areas were flooded in Hico, about 100 miles southwest of Dallas. No injuries were reported, but some major roads into the town were closed.
High temperatures blamed in fish deaths
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — A heat wave has warmed the Firehole River to as much as 82 degrees, killing hundreds of rainbow and brown trout.
Park officials say the trout died last week when temperatures reached triple digits in some places. The warm water has prompted voluntary fishing restrictions along several Yellowstone rivers and streams.
