Hurricane Ian, forecast to make landfall in Florida this week, is expected to bring a dangerous storm surge of up to 12 feet near Fort Myers and 8 feet near Tampa. During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, at least 1,500 people died "directly, or indirectly, as a result of storm surge," the National Hurricane Center said. When Hurricane Sandy hit New York and New Jersey in 2012, many homes filled quickly with water that reached levels of 8 to 9 feet.
Jury selection is underway Tuesday in one of the most complex and crucial cases being brought by the Justice Department in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, as five members of the Oath Keepers anti-government group -- including its founder Stewart Rhodes -- stand trial on charges that they conspired together to oppose by force the lawful transition of presidential power. The trial, which is expected to last over a month, could prove to be the toughest test yet for prosecutors in the DOJ's sprawling investigation of the Jan. 6 attack, which has so far resulted in federal charges against nearly 900 defendants. Failing to secure convictions against Rhodes or others in the case with the rarely-brought seditious conspiracy statute, experts say, could prove to be a significant setback to the department's ongoing efforts to target alleged domestic extremist groups driven to carry out acts of violence against the government.

The Conference Board said on Tuesday its Consumer Confidence Index rose to 108.0 this month from 103.6 in August.

Thousands of protesters opposed to the state-funded funeral of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe lined the streets near parliament in Tokyo on Tuesday, as helicopters whizzed above and dignitaries from all over the world paid their respects to the slain leader. U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, who was among those who came Tokyo's famed Budokan arena on Tuesday, said she came out of respect for the slain leader's legacy and that Abe was a great friend to the United States. Japan's government said about 3,600 people from Japan and about 700 from overseas would come to the state funeral.
Teresa Giudice is reflecting on her "Dancing with the Stars" journey after her elimination during Monday's "Elvis Night." The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star and her partner, Pasha Pashkov, found themselves in the bottom two for the second week in a row after performing a jive set to "All Shook Up," which earned them a score of 23 out of 40 from the judges. "I thought I was gonna make it a few more weeks, but all good," Giudice, 50, told "Good Morning America" Tuesday.
Meta, the parent company of Facebook and other services, said that the accounts tied to both countries were taken down manually, though for more in-depth investigations and bigger networks an automated feature for takedowns is also used. The accounts, as a whole, did not reach nearly the same scale as past documented efforts on social media to spread politically related messages to U.S. users and others. In response to this scrutiny about foreign actors on their platforms, Meta and other leading internet companies have taken steps, they say, to curb the spread of suspicious and misleading information.
Prince William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales, traveled to Wales on Tuesday to meet with different communities across the nation and learn about the work of key charitable organizations. The couple first traveled to Anglesey to meet with crew and volunteers at the RNLI Holyhead Lifeboat Station, one of the oldest lifeboat stations on the Welsh coast, then visited St. Thomas Church in Swansea, a redeveloped church supporting locals and serving as a hub in the community. William and Kate have a "deep affection for Wales," according to Kensington Palace.

Most children in the United States have returned to school for the year as districts aim to bring kids back to a setting that resembles the pre-pandemic normal. Dr. Greta Massetti, chief of the field epidemiology and prevention branch at the CDC, told reporters at the time that because unvaccinated and vaccinated people were no longer being advised to quarantine, test-to-stay was no longer necessary. Cases and hospitalizations do not appear to be dramatically rising and adults have the highest rate of weekly cases per 100,000, per CDC data.
Two Texas legislators held a listening session Monday to hear from Robb Elementary School victims' families, who continue to voice how unheard they feel by their representatives as they plead for gun control statewide and nationally. "The fact that I have to sit here and tell y'all, the state and federal government, how to do your job, is evidence enough of the massive failure we've experienced," Kimberly Rubio, mother of 10-year-old victim Lexi Rubio, told the legislators. "This was not the first school shooting and will not be the last until we federally ban these weapons," Rubio said.
Four people have died and two are missing after a tourist boat sunk near the Galápagos Islands on Sunday night, Santa Cruz officials confirmed to ABC News.

Canada is lifting all of its COVID-19-related entry restrictions, effective Saturday, government officials announced. Travelers, regardless if they're Canadian citizens or not, will no longer have to submit public health information through an application the government launched for travelers before or after they enter the country, provide proof of vaccination, go through pre- or on-arrival testing, quarantine or isolate, or monitor and report if they've developed COVID-19 symptoms when arriving in Canada, the country's public health agency said. Additionally, the Canadian government said travelers will no longer be required to wear masks on planes and trains, adding that it strongly recommends people "wear high-quality and well-fitted masks during their journeys."
More than 32,000 young patients newly diagnosed with cancer now live in states that have imposed or have impending abortion restrictions, according to a new study published Monday in The Lancet Oncology. Because many life-saving cancer treatments harm future fertility, many teens and young adults with cancer decide to freeze eggs, sperm or embryos in the hope of having a family later in life. Now, in the wake of the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, the American Cancer Society is warning that their fertility preservation options could be at risk in the future.
A federal judge last week ordered Ruby Montoya, a 32-year-old climate activist, to serve six years in prison for her role in damaging the Dakota Access Pipeline -- a sentence that federal prosecutors said they hope will deter others who plan to engage in what they characterized as "domestic terrorism." Montoya, who pleaded guilty to one charge of conspiring to damage an energy facility, and 42-year-old activist Jessica Reznicek snuck through security fences, set fire to equipment and used chemicals to burn holes in the pipeline itself from 2016 to 2017, according to their plea agreements. On Thursday, in addition to Montoya's prison sentence, U.S. District Judge Rebecca Ebinger ordered the pair to pay more than $3 million in restitution.
President Joe Biden's federal student loan forgiveness plan will cost $400 billion over 10 years, according to a revised estimate this week from the Congressional Budget Office. In a letter sent Monday to North Carolina Republicans Sen. Richard Burr and Rep. Virginia Foxx following their inquiries into Biden's announcement last month to forgive up to $20,000 in federal student loans, the CBO noted that the cost of pausing repayments through the end of 2022 will add an additional $20 million onto that $400 billion price tag.
NASA has successfully tested its Double Asteroid Redirection Test spacecraft, or DART, which collided with an asteroid Monday night. On the receiving end of that collision will be Dimorphos, a small asteroid that is the moon of a bigger space rock, Didymos. The instruments will give viewers a first glimpse of Didymos and allow the spacecraft to autonomously steer itself into a direct collision with the small asteroid, Dimorphos.
