BRENHAM, Texas (AP) — At least two people are dead and five people are missing after this week's torrential rains in Texas and Kansas, officials said Saturday. The same areas face the possibility of more rain over the long Memorial Day weekend.
Eleven people, most of them children, were injured Saturday when lightning struck a birthday party in a Paris park, officials said, adding that six of the victims were seriously injured. Police said eight children and three adults were hurt when the storm hit as they were holding the celebrations in Parc Monceau in northwest Paris. "They had taken shelter under a tree," said Paris official Karen Taieb.
