BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Authorities in Louisiana's Ascension Parish, south of Baton Rouge, expect thousands of residents to be impacted by floodwaters in the next six to eight hours. They're preparing for the worst because swollen streams heading toward the Gulf don't have anywhere to go. The town of Sorrento is expected to be hit next. More than 11,000 residents in the region are in shelters. About twice as many have had to be rescued following nearly 48 hours of intense rain late last week.

NEW YORK (AP) — Police in New York say they're fairly certain they've arrested the man who killed an imam and his friend.

A police spokesman says surveillance video shows the man speeding away from the scene of the shooting near a Queens mosque.

CHILMARK, Mass. (AP) — Taking a pause in his vacation, President Barack Obama has warned that unless Democrats campaign aggressively in the next 80 days, it's still possible for Hillary Clinton to lose.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Health officials say a Texas resident from the El Paso area who recently traveled to an area of Miami where local Zika transmission occurred has tested positive for the virus.
