HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say two people in Texas and Louisiana have died from Hurricane Ike, while the U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a teenager who was swept out to sea by a large wave.
Authorities say a Pinehurst, Texas woman died in her bed early Saturday after a tree fell on her home, crushing her. Officials say she was the first reported death attributed to Ike.
Louisiana officials say a 16-year-old boy drowned Saturday after falling out of a fishing boat in Ike-flooded Bayou Dularge.
The Coast Guard has been searching for 19-year-old Michael Moxly off the shores of Corpus Christi, Texas. Petty Officer Josh Morales says Moxly was on a jetty when he was swept away Friday off North Padre Island as Ike approached a Texas landfall.
