BUCHANAN, N.Y. (AP) — Part of a New York nuclear power plant remains offline after a transformer fire created another problem: thousands of gallons of oil leaking into the Hudson River.

BALTIMORE (AP) —Records show that nearly 2,600 people were brought to the Baltimore city jail between June 2012 and April 2015 with injuries too severe for them to be admitted. The Baltimore Sun obtained records showing that correctional officers at the jail refused to accept them. Baltimore police are under scrutiny for their treatment of detainees after the death of Freddie Gray last month.
