HOUSTON – Three people were killed after Tropical Storm Imelda hit southeast Texas Thursday, leading to heavy rainfall over the Houston area, Winnie and Beaumont.
Here are the following victims:
– Hunter Morrison, a 19-year-old man, died in the flood of Imelda. He tried to move his horse when he was shocked and drowned, according to the family statement.
– The second fatality occurred when a man was pulled from a submerged van near the intersection of Will Clayton Parkway with U.S. 59. The man's identity has not been released.
Another man was found dead Friday morning in a drainage ditch on West Mount Houston, deputies said. His death appears to be related, but officials have not confirmed whether it was drowning.
If his death is confirmed as drowning, he will be the fourth person to have died in Imelda.
