The death toll rose to six in Texas as more bodies were recovered Saturday after another band of strong storms and heavy rain spawned three tornadoes and dangerous flooding in the waterlogged state. It was the second day of turbulent weather in Texas. At least four people died Friday in flood waters in central Texas. The storms and suspected tornadoes, which forecasters say were caused by an upper-level disturbance from Mexico, soaked an already-sodden swath of Texas that was still drying out from the remnants of Hurricane Patricia.
