HAYS COUNTY, Texas, May 24 (UPI) -- Following record-setting rainfall, multiple people were killed and homes were washed away in Texas and Oklahoma Sunday after flash flooding hit the areas, officials said.

Authorities are surveying the damage but have said so far hundreds of homes have been destroyed and about 1,000 others severely damaged.

At least three people are dead and many others have been injured, CNN reported Sunday.

"We do have whole streets that have maybe one or two houses left on them, and the rest are just slabs," Hays County, Texas Emergency Management Coordinator Kharley Smith said, adding that two main bridges have also been washed away.
