The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced Friday it will not cut a check to any North Texans who lost their homes in the Christmas weekend tornadoes.
Hundreds of residents lost their homes entirely, while hundreds more have homes with serious or significant damage.
FEMA's decision was immediately met with a wave of outrage and shock from local and state leaders, and also from victims themselves.
"We're going to be suffering from this for years to come," said Richard Tullius, who lost his Rowlett home in the tornado.
A woman found an abandoned dog chained to a tree in a New York City park Friday morning, the animal's paws frozen to the ground amid the day's bitterly cold temperatures.
Jennifer Williams told NBC 4 New York that she was walking her dog in Brooklyn's Prospect Park on Friday morning when her pet broke free of its harness ran toward a tree. When she caught up, she found the neglected animal sitting on the ground, unable to move.
"She wouldn't stand up for me so I just wrapped the coat around her and picked her up," Williams said.
This barker could hit Broadway, the way she dances.
The rescue dog's moves, caught on camera at a central Florida animal shleter, earned her the name Ginger Rogers, star of dance movies like "Top Hat," "Swing Time" and "The Barkleys of Broadway," which co-starred Fred Astaire.
The video, posted by on Orange County Animal Services, has been seen more than 250,000 times. The shuffling pup is up for adoption, or "looking for a new partner," as the shelter's video put it.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said on Friday that she regretted the way her support for Hillary Clinton was perceived, NBC News reported.
"I have spent much of my career as a diplomat. It is an occupation in which words and context matter a great deal. So one might assume I know better than to tell a large number of women to go to hell," Albright said in an op-ed published in the New York Times, in which she renewed her call to women to support each other.
Albright said earlier that “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other,” a line she has used many times in the past.
During the Democratic debate on Thursday, Clinton shrugged off the comment and said she is running on her own experience.

Mexico's deadliest prison brawl in many years was a bloodbath in which inmates attacked each other with hammers, cudgels and makeshift blades, authorities said Friday, underlining yet again the power that drug cartels wield inside many of the country's lockups.
But questions about the melee deepened Friday when Nuevo Leon state prosecutor Roberto Flores revealed that three officers of the state public safety department, which supplies the prison's guards, had been charged with homicide and abuse of authority. He did not say if they were accused of killing inmates, but authorities have said a guard fired a bullet found in one dead inmate.
Flores also said that four of the nine bodies still unidentified could not be named because the prison had no record of them at the facility.
A Washington D.C. man expected a quick ride and a small bill when he got into an Uber driver's car -- but he woke up to a steep charge, because the driver cruised as the rider snoozed. The Uber rider, Mekele Baucom, told News4 he was billed $171 for a 71-mile ride when he asked to be taken home 1 mile away but fell asleep in the car. The driver drove back and forth on the Capital Beltway, Baucom's receipt shows. "This dude literally just took me on a ride," he said. "Anything could have happened." Uber refunded Baucom his money but declined to specifically address the incident to News4.
Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, offered this year's hopefuls advice about a hard-learned lesson: Release your tax returns before the primaries and avoid tough scrutiny later. But the top three Republicans leading in national polls don't appear to be listening.
Even as other candidates -- most notably Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush -- have already disclosed years' worth of private tax returns to dispel questions about their personal finances, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have failed to do the same despite promises to do so, sometimes after events that have now come and gone. None of the campaigns will say why they've delayed or when the candidates will release their returns.
As Hillary Clinton traveled to a black community in South Carolina, her African-American allies in Congress seized upon comments the Vermont senator made at the debate insinuating that race relations would "absolutely" be better under a future Sanders administration.
One questioned the allegiances of Sanders, who is the longest serving independent in congressional history but running for president as a Democrat.
"He was never a Democrat. He is only a Democrat for convenience," Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said in an interview with The Associated Press. He accused Sanders of "dismissive and disrespectful behavior toward the president."

Donald Trump has long questioned whether Sen. Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada, is eligible to be president. Now, Trump is threatening to sue Cruz over it.
Trump says Cruz may not be a natural born citizen, one of three qualifications to be president that are listed in the Constitution. Trump tweeted Friday he has standing to sue Cruz over the issue.
Cruz has defended himself from the "birther" claim that he's disqualified from the office, including in a presidential debate in January. But Trump's latest remark, coming after a week of negative campaigning between the candidates, is the first time he's threatened to take action over it.
Presidential candidates in both parties battled for the crucial backing of black and Hispanic voters Friday as the race shifted toward states with more minority voters.
Republicans crisscrossed South Carolina looking to derail billionaire Donald Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who each came to the state with a burst of momentum after the first two nomination contests. Several candidates embraced the chaos as they felt out the best strategies to survive South Carolina and advance into a grueling March primary schedule, when 58 percent of the party's delegate total will be at stake.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush defended his decision to bring his brother, former President George W. Bush, to South Carolina to help him campaign. Speaking to ABC's Good Morning America on Friday, Bush said recruiting the former president wasn't a sign of desperation, as Trump suggested has suggested. George W. Bush left the White House in January 2009 with low approval ratings.

Republican Jim Gilmore has suspended his longshot bid for the presidency, the former Virginia governor announced on his Facebook page Friday.
Gilmore, 66, entered the race last summer but found himself in a crowded field of candidates who had more money and greater name recognition. He finished a distant ninth in the Republican primary in New Hampshire, with fewer than 200 votes, according to unofficial results.
Born in Virginia, Gilmore served as a prosecutor and attorney general in that state before he was elected governor. He was barred by state law from seeking a second consecutive term.

Eight on-duty police officers have already been killed by gunfire this year, including five this week, NBC News reported.
The five were shot in Colorado, Maryland, North Dakota and Georgia. The most recent was Officer Greg Barney, who was shot Thursday at an apartment complex in Riverdale, Georgia. He was serving a “no-knock” warrant, when the suspect ran and opened fire, striking the 25-year veteran.
Only one officer was shot dead between Jan. 1 and Feb. 11 last year, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. A total of 13 officers were killed in this time period last year; most of them traffic-related. That’s compared to 11 officers killed so far in 2016.

A 70-year-old Massachusetts man shot another 70-year-old man 10 times, killing him in the victim's Wareham home earlier this week over a love triangle with the arrested man's dead girlfriend, prosecutors allege.
John Witty of Berkley was arraigned in Wareham District Court Friday on one count of murder in the shooting death of John Williams, who was found dead in his Glenn Charley Road home on Tuesday.
Investigators say they believe Wittey shot Williams 10 times in the head and back after allegedly learning the two men had been involved in what's described as something of a love triangle. It wasn't immediately clear if Witty had an attorney.
