Heavy rains pound North Texas, severe
By Lisa Maria Garza and Jim Forsyth DALLAS (Reuters) - Storms bringing as much as 7 inches (17.8 cm) of rain drenched North Texas overnight into Friday, prompting hundreds of calls for emergency assistance and adding to the woes of the state where at least 20 people have been killed in severe weather this week. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for an area from Central Texas into Kansas, with the additional rainfall swelling Texas rivers already at dangerously high levels. The 7 inches in North Texas from Thursday morning into Friday comes after storms dumped as much as 11 inches (28 cm) overnight on Monday in the Houston area, where more than 4,000 structures were damaged in floods.

Live anthrax found in U.S. military shipment
Live anthrax has been found in a 2008 sample sent to Australia from the same U.S. Army facility identified this week for more recent, mistaken shipments to nine U.S. states and an air base in South Korea, a U.S. defense official said on Friday. The U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, did not know what kind of facility in Australia received the sample, which, like the others, was meant to have been inactive. The discovery was made during the investigation into the U.S. Army's Dugway Proving Ground in Utah that was cited for the other mistaken shipments.
