Weather system that spawned deadly Texas storms still hanging around

GAINESVILLE, Texas (AP) -- The complex weather pattern that helped spawn a weekend of storms that submerged parts of North Texas with nearly a foot of water and killed at least five people may not be finished yet.

One expert with the National Weather Service says computer models suggest the soggy situation will continue for at least a few more weeks during what is usually the hottest and driest time of the year in Texas. The problem is a stubborn area of spinning low pressure that arrived from the Pacific Ocean last week.

Authorities say rescue workers in the Gainesville area are searching for at least five people still missing after flooding swept the region.

The dead include a five-year-old girl and her grandmother, a four-year-old girl who was swept out of her mother's arms and two people who'd driven into high water.
