By Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A grandmother and four of her grandchildren were killed in floods in Texas caused by a storm system that unleashed tornadoes, damaging hail and torrential rains on several central U.S. states, officials said on Saturday. The flood victims in Palestine, Texas, 100 miles (160 km)southeast of Dallas, escaped a house where flood waters had reached the roof line and were then swept away by the rushing waters, Palestine police Captain James Muniz said. The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch on Saturday extending from east of the Houston area, where floods this month have killed eight people, into much of Louisiana and Mississippi.
