The death toll from flooding caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine has reached eight after two more bodies were found in Texas.
One body was identified Tuesday as that of Jennifer Ring of Austin. The mother of two children had been missing since swift water swept her sport utility vehicle off a road on Sept. 8. Austin police say two fishermen found her body in Lake Austin on Monday.
In nearby Georgetown, police on Tuesday found the debris-wrapped body of a man in a drainage field. A police statement says the cause of his death hasn't been determined but Hermine flooding was a factor.
Those deaths bring to seven the number of people killed in Texas in Hermine-related flooding.
One person also was killed in Oklahoma.
