GONZALES, La. (AP) — Floodwaters are receding in some areas of southern Louisiana, but they've been rising in other places downstream, sending more people to shelters. Officials say at least 40,000 homes have been damaged and 11 people killed in some of the worst flooding in Louisiana history. More than 30,000 people have been rescued since Friday. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards says there've been scattered reports of looting.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Southern California wildfire that began as a small patch of flame near Interstate 15 in the Cajon Pass has turned into a 28-square-mile blaze that's consumed a number of homes. Some 82,000 residents have been told to evacuate in San Bernardino County.

TETERBORO, N.J. (AP) — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is revamping his campaign again. He's bringing in Breitbart News' Stephen Bannon as campaign CEO and promoting pollster Kellyanne Conway to campaign manager. The move comes just 82 days before the election and represents yet another shake-up for the tumultuous campaign. Opinion surveys show Trump trailing his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton nationally and in key battleground states.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Liz Cheney is close to winning the seat once held by her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney. Liz Cheney has won the Republican primary for Wyoming's only seat in the U.S. House. And since party registration favors the GOP over Democrats better than three-to-one in Wyoming, it's likely she'll win the general election this fall.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's coast guard says it has rescued 59 migrants in an inflatable dinghy in rough weather in the Aegean Sea. The migrants were picked up early Wednesday off the eastern island of Kos by two patrol boats. Greece has been the main entry point into the European Union for hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees hoping for better lives in Europe.
