Four killed in storm-related incident in Texas

DALLAS - Four people died in a storm-related incident in Texas near where a tornado touched down on Saturday, bringing the death toll from tornadoes and flooding this week in the southern United States to 22, according to officials and local media.

The four victims were killed in what was believed to be a traffic accident in the Texas city of Garland, about 15 miles (24 km) northeast of Dallas, police spokesman Mike Hatfield told the Dallas Morning News.

Reuters could not independently verify the report as local authorities could not be immediately reached.
