Air boats were on standby Monday, but no evacuations were reported. Authorities said there were two separate rescue operations Sunday near Argusville. Five people and a dog were rescued from one residence, and the second rescue was of a man who became stuck in his tractor when a flooded road gave out beneath him.
Comptroller mistakenly posts public records
SAN ANTONIO | The personal information of about 3.5 million Texans, including addresses and Social Security numbers, was mistakenly posted on public servers controlled by the state comptroller’s office and remained there for nearly a year or more before officials discovered the problem, the agency said Monday.
Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said that in some cases, the data inadvertently released included birth dates and driver’s license numbers. There was no indication that any personal data had been misused.
The information affected was in data transferred by the Teacher Retirement System of Texas, the Texas Workforce Commission, and the Employees Retirement System of Texas.
