Tropical Storm Hermine death toll rises to six

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Search teams have recovered the bodies of two men missing in Texas floodwaters, bringing the death toll caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine (hur-MEEN') to six.

Authorities on Friday found the bodies of a 28-year-old Louisiana man swept away in the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, and a 57-year-old father who drove into a swollen San Antonio creek despite his wife telling him not to risk it.

At least one woman who disappeared in heavy flooding still remains missing. Authorities in Austin are searching for a woman who drove around a police barricade and into a fast-moving creek Tuesday night.

Hermine caused relatively few problems when it made landfall as a tropical storm Monday night, but its drenching remnants led to more than 100 high-water rescues.
