Hurricane Ian, which is currently in the Gulf of Mexico, is forecast to make landfall on Florida's western coast on Wednesday between 1 and 6 p.m., somewhere between Port Charlotte and Sarasota.

Tens of thousands of Russians continue to try to flee the country, fearful of being caught up in the military mobilization ordered by president Vladimir Putin last week to replenish his forces in Ukraine. Miles-long lines of traffic have formed at border crossings with some neighboring countries amid the exodus, as Russians pack exit routes, worried the government might soon impose further restrictions on military age men leaving. Officials in Kazakhstan, which borders Russia to the south, said 98,000 Russians have crossed into their country since Putin announced the mobilization last Wednesday.
The South Carolina House rejected a bill Tuesday that would've banned nearly all abortions after fetal cardiac activity is detected. The proposed ban would have made exceptions for when the mother's life or health is in danger, for fetuses with fatal anomalies and first-trimester pregnancies that are a result of rape or incest. The bill was introduced by the state Senate in September after it rejected an abortion ban proposed by the House.

A federal appeals court issued a ruling Tuesday that could delay a former magazine columnist's defamation lawsuit against former President Donald Trump. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned an earlier district court decision that said the United States government could not substitute for Trump as a defendant in the lawsuit brought by E. Jean Carroll. Carroll, a former columnist at Elle, has said she kept the dress she wore the day Trump allegedly sexually assaulted her in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman in the 1990s, a claim he has denied.
Jonathan and Diana Toebbe pleaded guilty for a second time on Tuesday to federal charges that they tried to sell secrets about U.S. submarine nuclear propulsion systems to a foreign country. The couple originally pleaded guilty in February but a judge threw out the plea agreements last month after deciding the sentences called for were too low. The Toebbes, of Annapolis, Maryland, seemed to neighbors and co-workers to be the typical suburban couple before they were arrested last October for allegedly scheming to sell secrets about Virginia-class nuclear submarines to a foreign country, which was not identified in court papers but was Brazil, a source told ABC News.

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.
