3 dead, following multi-day flood in the South

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS (AP) -

At least three people have died in fast-moving floodwaters in North Texas as freezing rain and flooding pummeled the state and other parts of the central U.S. on Friday, with forecasters warning that the chilling weather would worsen over the holiday weekend.

Forecasters issued flash-flood watches and warnings from northern Texas up to St. Louis, with up to 4 inches of rain reported in some places as the storm system makes a slow trek to the northeast.

Freezing rain and strong winds also caused at least two fatal traffic accidents in western Kansas on Thursday.
