Authorities in Austin scaled back the search for a missing motorist Friday, a day after a central Texas official said hope was fading that another person swept away by floodwaters from the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine would be found alive.
At least four people _ three in Texas and one in Oklahoma _ died in flooding caused by the storm as it swept through the region this week.
Divers were no longer involved in the search for a woman who disappeared after her sport utility vehicle was washed down a swollen creek, said fire Lt. Josh Portie. He said a fire department boat was being used along with routine police boat patrols.
Hermine caused relatively few problems when it made landfall as a tropical storm Monday night, and as the remnants moved north into Texas and Oklahoma, the flooding caught some people off guard. The sudden flooding on Wednesday led to more than 100 high-water rescues and inundated some northern Texas city neighborhoods.
Hermine was the third tropical system this year to hit the Rio Grande Valley, a flood-prone area that encompasses northeastern Mexico and southeastern Texas.
