3 Killed, 8 Missing After Floods Ravage Plans, Midwest

Three people were killed as a storm system barreled through parts of Texas, Oklahoma and other Plains and Midwest states, dropping record amounts of rainfall, causing flash floods, spawning tornadoes and destroying homes, NBC News reported. Rescuers were searching for eight people, including three young children, early Monday in the Hays County town of Wimberly where roads turned to torrents, some 1,000 people were forced to evacuate, and hundreds of homes were destroyed. The weather system also triggered 36 reported tornadoes on Sunday in Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Colorado and Iowa, according to the National Weather Service. On Monday, flash-flood warnings stretched from the Texas-Mexico border to western Tennessee as widespread heavy showers and thunderstorms was predicted across most of Oklahoma, central and eastern Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. The storms could bring damaging wind gusts, hail and isolated tornadoes, said Weather Channel lead meteorologist Kevin Roth. Read »

Dozens Arrested in Protests Over Officer's Acquittal

Police in riot gear made 71 arrests as protesters flooded the streets of Cleveland following the acquittal of a white police officer charged in the shooting deaths of two unarmed black motorists, officials said early Sunday, NBC News reported. In one incident, three people were arrested after an object was hurled through a restaurant window, injuring a female patron, police said in a tweet. At a Sunday morning press conference, officials said 71 people were arrested, including 39 adult men, 16 women and "a few juveniles." The protests — which were largely peaceful — began Saturday morning after police officer Michael Brelo was found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the killings of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, who died in a barrage of police gunfire after a high-speed car chase in November 2012. The 31-year-old patrolman mounted the car that Russell and Williams were in and fired into their windshield while standing on the car hood. He was one of 13 officers who fired a total of 137 shots at the car. The Department of Justice announced Saturday it will conduct a probe into the case. Read »
