A woman and her two young children died when the family car was caught in rushing flash flood waters in the West Texas rolling plains. The incident happened about 6 a.m. Wednesday at what's usually a small creek just outside Dublin, Texas, about 75 miles southwest of Fort Worth. Erath County Sheriff Matt Coates says the woman's husband was found clinging to a tree. The woman's body was later recovered from the car, and their children were found downstream.
