AUSTIN, Texas - A grandmother and four of her grandchildren were killed and another person missing in floods in Texas caused by storms that unleashed tornadoes, damaging hail and torrential rains on several central US states, officials said on Saturday.



The flood victims in Palestine, Texas, 100 miles (160 km) southeast of Dallas, escaped a house where flood waters had reached the roof line and were then swept away by the rushing waters, Palestine police Captain James Muniz said.
