Flash flooding is thought to be a factor in the death of a Goose Creek woman who was killed in a traffic accident Thursday in Mississippi.

Becky Morgan, 58, was traveling east on Interstate 20 at 9:30 a.m. when her vehicle hydroplaned and hit a tree, according to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger. She died at the scene.

The storm forced authorities to rescue at least 18 residents from their homes.
