Hurricane Maria lashes the Turks and Caicos on path toward Bahamas

Today 10:50 GMT

Hurricane Maria rolled over the Turks and Caicos islands Friday, bringing dangerous storm surges and possibly dumping up to 20 inches of rain in some areas on a path that next takes aim on the Bahamas before moving north into the Atlantic.

Forecasts by the National Hurricane Center have the hurricane moving between Bermuda and the U.S. coast, but other weather systems are at play on whether Maria strays closer to the Atlantic seaboard.

Guatemalans travel to Oklahoma to honor 1st US martyr

Today 10:51 GMT

The ceremony is expected to draw thousands to a downtown convention center to honor the church's first U.S.-born martyr and the first priest from the United States to be beatified.

Few religious pilgrimages lead down a dusty, unpaved Oklahoma road past grazing horses, metal barns and towering wind turbines in the distance. But the unusual destination of this 2,000-mile (3,218-kilometer) trek from Central America to a farmhouse outside a one-stoplight town seems an appropriate honor for the Rev. Stanley Rother, a martyred priest celebrated for his unassuming nature and hard work.

Today 09:55 GMT

The Salt Lake City police chief, Mike Brown, said he had visited parks and the Jordan river, which threads its way to the Great Salt Lake and has homeless camps dotted along its banks, but he hadn’t seen an influx from downtown.

While the country’s most prominent homeless crises are in coastal cities – New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles – the mountain-ringed capital of the Mormon church has also long struggled to house or, in the view of some, has politely ignored its homeless population.

Today 09:56 GMT

“I’m completely convinced taking money and power out of Washington and returning it to states to administer health care is the best way to replace a collapsing Obamacare system,” Graham said in a statement Friday. Republicans say they’ll press on one way or another with trying to remake the health-care system.
