Rainstorm triggers flash floods, mudslides on Texas Creek

The first thing Ron Race did, the day after his family had waited out last week’s flood of Texas Creek from the safety of their roof, was to power up his backhoe and extract his riding lawn mower from the culvert where it had been deposited by a torrent of water and mud. The flood...
