A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Montgomery, Washington, and Waller counties until 12pm Tuesday. Heavy rain and thunderstorms swept through early this AM, dumping 1-3 inches of rain in one hour.
Funeral services were held over the weekend for a former Prairie View A&M cheerleader.
Family and friends gathered Saturday at a San Antonio-area church to bid a final farewell to Bethany Norwood.
Norwood was paralyzed in 2004 while practicing cheerleading stunts. As fellow cheerleaders tossed Norwood in the air, they missed her as she came back down, causing her to hit head-first on the ground.
Despite her paralysis, Norwood returned to Prairie View and completed her degree in May 2006.
She died Monday at a San Antonio hospital from complications related to her injuries.
