DALLAS (August 19, 2012)—A search was underway Sunday for two men who were swept into creeks after thunderstorms dumped as much as 4 inches of rain on the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Richard Harrison told The Associated Press crews resumed searching Sunday for a man who was swept into a creek on the east side of the city Saturday night.
A witness told them that the man had stepped into the creek to cool off.
Lt. Jerome Henry of Dallas-Fire Rescue told The Dallas Morning News that the search resumed Sunday for a man who was swept away in Dallas' White Rock Creek.
Witnesses said the man was fishing when he lost his footing.
The storms caused street flooding, stranded drivers and a partial cave-in of the roof of the Urban Inter Tribal Center of Texas.
