2 dead in severe San Antonio flooding

Two women died Saturday - one of them swept away after being inches from her would-be rescuers - due to raging floodwaters in San Antonio, which braced for yet more drenching rains.

San Antonio International Airport received 9.57 inches of rain Saturday morning alone, CNN meteorologists said, and a number of rivers and creeks were well above flood stage.

    Floods are nothing to sneeze at, and are very dangerous; evidenced here with this story...be safe, people.

    It is amazing how quickly the waters come up. Just in a matter of hours, In some cases less than that, you go from dry land to an emergency. People need to learn to respect what water is able to do. It can save your life, but it can take your life just as quickly. ( Wow, talk about Capt. Obvious )

    Hello dazzle
    I see they took down our convo on the other blog.

    I live in San Antonio and have lived in Florida. Compared to Florida's Huricanes this was a "walk in the park." Really, Unimformed and un prepared people and a 2nd rate "town"
