Two more soldiers were found and confirmed deceased at Fort Hood after their military vehicle overturned, the base said. “This brings the total deceased to five soldiers. The search continues for the remaining four missing soldiers,” the statement said.

.

Three Fort Hood soldiers are dead and six are missing, the latest victims of an onslaught of flooding in Texas that shows no sign of letting up.
The soldiers’ tactical vehicle overturned at a low-water crossing near Owl Creek at the Central Texas Army base, the public affairs office said. The bodies of three soldiers were recovered downstream; three more were rescued near the vehicle and brought to a hospital in stable condition.

.

The search continued for six missing soldiers amid a flood warning in the area, after a May that saw record rainfall in locations across Texas. So far, June has not brought a reprieve and more rain and flooding is expected, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

.

He warned that saturated ground and swollen creeks, bayous and rivers could not absorb it, as the incident involving the soldiers demonstrated. Bell County, Texas, Emergency Manager Michael Harmon said Owl Creek, the area where the vehicle overturned, regularly experiences flash floods.

.

The weather would start turning around late Saturday, Myers said, but he warned that its aftermath would bring Texans a different threat: mosquitoes.

.

He said the stagnant water would likely not recede for weeks and the insects were already flying around his shoes. He was walking on sodden grass near a flooded state park in Houston, now under about 10 feet of water.

.

“This will last for weeks,” he said. “I don’t have to tell you what that means for West Nile, for Zika,” referring to two viruses spread to humans by mosquitoes.
