Raging floodwaters carry entire house downstream as severe flooding hits Central Texas

Severe flooding in Central Texas on October 16 caused an entire house to float down an overflowing river, as captured by a local resident.

In the video filmed at Lake Marble Falls near Cottonwood Shores, the tops of the structure's roof and bits of debris that had broken off can be seen being carried by the fast-moving waters.

A state of emergency was declared in 18 counties, and several remained under flash flood warnings throughout the night. Across the region, residents reported overflowing rivers, inundated streets and houses going underwater as rain pummeled the region.

One person's body was found in Lake LBJ in Burnet County, near the east bank of the shore in a neighborhood between Kingsland and Highland Haven. The victim was not identified.
