HOUSTON (AP) -- Residents must sort through waterlogged debris after deadly and destructive storms dumped inches of rain from the Hill Country to Houston in Texas, as well as parts of Oklahoma.

More than two dozen people died in the severe weather that hit over Memorial Day weekend, including 13 in the Texas-Mexico border town of Ciudad Acuna, Mexico.

A wall of water roared down the Blanco River in the picturesque Hill Country town of Wimberley on Monday, destroying dozens of homes - including one that was swept downstream and smashed into a bridge.

In Houston, where as much as 11 inches of rain fell in a six-hour period late Monday and early Tuesday, about 2,500 vehicles were abandoned on streets and freeways as drivers escaped for higher ground. As many as 700 homes were damaged in the Houston area.
