A heartbreaking scene out of Texas this week, where flood waters have caused dozens of deaths.
"Twenty-six people were killed by these storms throughout the week included six-year old Andrew McComb. His father survived, his mother and sister are still missing," reports Fox News.
President Obama signed a disaster declaration late Friday, which will allow federal disaster assistance for Texas. Funding will be available for the counties of Harris, Hays and Van Zandt.
