Ore. flooding claims lives of mom and son after raging waters sweep away car from parking lot By The Associated Press

ALBANY, Ore. (AP) ' 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.
