9:30 a.m.

Officials say an elderly motorist is missing after her car was swept away in fast-moving floods over 5 feet deep fueled by record-breaking rain in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Tarrant County sheriff’s office spokesman Terry Grisham says a 26-year-old deputy was also swept away during an attempt to rescue the motorist in Fort Worth early Friday. A city fire department dive team found the deputy clinging to a tree. The motorist remains missing.

More than 4 inches of rain fell at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport from Thursday through Friday morning. It has rained 55.23 inches there this year, topping the annual rainfall record of 53.54 inches set in 1991.

National Weather Service forecaster Matt Stalley says rain is forecast through Sunday, with a threat of snow and ice in the Texas Panhandle.
