U.S. FLAG DRAPED OVER TREELIMB AFTER FLOODING.
An American flag hangs in a tree along the banks of the Guadalupe River after record flooding, October 20. In the background, is a home that was carried off its foundation and pushed hundreds of yards downstream. Texas Gov. George W. Bush asked the federal government to declare 20 Texas counties disaster areas. New Braunfels, north of San Antonio, on the Guadalupe River, was one of the hardest hit communities with some 500 homes and businesses destroyed.
