FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -

the Army says the bodies have been found of four Fort Hood soldiers who were swept away in a rain-swollen creek during a training exercise at the sprawling Army base in Central Texas.

Maj. Gen. John Uberti says the bodies were found Friday, a day after their 2 1/2-ton truck overturned in Owl Creek at Fort Hood. Five other soldiers were killed and three more injured.

Fort Hood spokesman John Miller has said a crossing was flooded after two days of heavy rains and that the swift floodwaters swept the Light Medium Tactical Vehicle from the road.

Central and Southeast Texas have been inundated with rain in recent days, and more than half of the state is under flood watches or warnings

At least six other people have died in floods.
