Texas Gets A Break From Days Of Rain And Flooding

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Some Texas Boy Scouts are telling the story of their close call in a weekend flood north of San Antonio.

They had to make a quick getaway when the Guadalupe River rose rapidly. No one was hurt but the scout troop from suburban Fort Worth reportedly lost five vehicles to the floodwaters, including a 15-passenger van.

One scout says he'd "never seen water rise like that" and says he and his friends barely escaped.

South of Austin, a woman who authorities say drove a minivan around barricades and became stuck in floodwaters with two children was charged with child endangerment after they were all rescued.

The sun came out over south and central Texas Sunday after days of heavy rain.
