4 dead, 3 still missing after Hermine flooding

At least three people are still missing after flooding caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine.

The search is expected to resume in Texas after daylight Friday for a missing swimmer and two motorists. The confirmed death toll now stands at four, including one person in Oklahoma.

Hermine caused relatively few problems when it made landfall as a tropical storm Monday night. But as the remnants moved north into Texas and Oklahoma, the flooding caught some people off guard.

The National Weather Service says even when tropical storms lose their power over open water, they can still carry tremendous amounts of rain across land.
