The death toll rose to nine as floods hit Fort Hood, Texas.

Twelve soldiers were on a training mission when their vehicle became stuck in the flooded creek in a remote section of the post.

Soldiers in a following vehicle rescued three of their comrades after the truck overturned, Maj. Gen. John Uberti told reporters.

"In this incident, we've lost nine soldiers," a grim-faced Uberti said.
