SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- San Antonio and the surrounding counties along rain-swollen rivers are bracing for the possibility of more flooding amid storm predictions.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for seven counties until 6 p.m. Sunday, saying thunderstorms could produce rainfall at a rate of 2 to 4 inches per hour.

Flood warnings remain in effect for several rivers already well above the flood stage.

Two women died Saturday after being swept away by floodwaters after weekend rains deluged numerous roads in San Antonio. One teenage boy also was reported missing in the San Antonio suburb of Schertz.

The American Red Cross set up shelters for those forced to evacuate their homes in Wilson County along the San Antonio River about 20 miles southeast of the city.
