A line of storms stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes dumped record rainfall on parts of Texas, Oklahoma and other Plains and Midwest states over this long and disastrous Memorial Day weekend. Among the worst affected places were the small Texas community of Wimberley and nearby San Marcos in the Central Texas corridor between San Antonio and Austin. Many homes in those communities were damaged or destroyed. Twelve people are still unaccounted for. Here is a recap of the day’s events.
10:30 p.m. CDT
What a sheriff described as a “pretty destructive” tornado has destroyed four homes in Central Texas, killing a man. Milam County Judge Dave Barkemeyer said the storm hit a subdivision just outside of the city of Cameron, which is about 60 miles northeast of Austin. County Sheriff David Greene said the twister damaged 10 to 15 homes in all.
Barkemeyer said the man died when his mobile home was destroyed about 4 p.m. Monday. Four other people were injured. No identities have been released. That brings to four the number of people killed in Texas since Friday by the storms that damaged many parts of the state.
