Authorities say the body of a woman killed after raging flood waters swept a car from a grocery store parking lot has been recovered hours after searchers recovered her son's body from an Oregon creek.
The Albany Fire department says family members located the body of 18-year-old Catharine McLaughlin about 1 p.m. Thursday.
Her son, 20-month-old Aiden McLaughlin, also died when the creek rose rapidly Wednesday evening and the car they were in was swept away. Two other people _ a 24-year-old man who was driving the car and his 5-year-old son _ were rescued after being carried downstream.
The deaths of McLaughlin and her son are among at least three blamed on a brutal storm that is hitting the Pacific Northwest.
