    Authorities in northeast Texas say the body of a 44-year-old woman was found in a drainage ditch after her car became stranded in high water following severe thunderstorms that passed through the area.

    Acting Sulphur Springs police Chief Jason Ricketson says Martha Patricia Torres-Regalado and another woman were driving late Wednesday when their car became stuck in a flooded drainage ditch.

    The second woman went to seek help and when she returned Torres-Regalado was gone.

    Torres-Regalado's body was found the next day in a drainage ditch blocks away.

    Sulphur Springs is about 70 miles northeast of Dallas.

    The storm system had brought heavy rain and numerous tornadoes to northern Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
