BOSTON (AP) — A day of tributes and a moment of silence will mark the one-year anniversary today of the Boston Marathon bombings. Three people were killed and more than 260 were wounded when two bombs went off near the finish line of the race. That's where a flag-raising ceremony and the moment of silence will be held this afternoon. President Barack Obama also will observe a moment of silence at the White House at 2:49 p.m.

GAUTIER, Miss. (AP) — About a dozen RV trailers at a campground are destroyed, trees and power lines are down and power is cut to some areas. A storm barreled through Mississippi Gulf Coast communities last night, but did serious damage in Gautier (goh-SHAY'), Miss., where there's widespread destruction at an RV trailer park. Forecasters say the storm was not a tornado, but straight-line winds of about 50 miles an hour.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Two convicted sex offenders could be arraigned today in California for allegedly raping and killing four women.
