AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The bodies of two more people killed by floodwaters from Tropical Storm Hermine last week have been found in the Austin area.
One of the bodies has been identified as that of 51-year-old Jennifer Ring of Austin. The mother of two had been missing since swift water swept her sport utility vehicle away on September 8th. Austin police say two fishermen found Ring's body floating in Lake Austin on Monday, and her identity was established Tuesday.
Meanwhile, 25 miles to the north in Georgetown, police found the debris-wrapped body of a man Tuesday in a drainage field of Pecan Branch. A police statement says the cause of his death hasn't been determined but the Hermine flooding was a factor. His identity hasn't been released.
These latest cases have the Hermine-related death toll at eight; seven in Texas and one in Oklahoma.
