Hurricane Michael's death toll may rise, as rescuers comb through rubble

Today 03:19 GMT

As search and rescue efforts intensify on Sunday in the beachside communities that Hurricane Michael turned into a debris-filled wasteland, authorities believe it’s a matter of time until the death toll will rise.

Far, the death toll stands at 18 people after Michael roared ashore Wednesday in Mexico Beach as a Category 4 hurricane with 155 mph winds and destructive storm surge. Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Saturday that the damage caused by the storm is "indescribable and unprecedented," and that about 1,700 search-and-rescue personnel have checked 25,000 homes.

Democrats fear Hillary Clinton's 'kiss of death' as midterms near

Saturday 21:50 GMT

Hillary Clinton is viewed as “the kiss of death” for Democratic candidates in the upcoming midterm election, forcing the former presidential candidate stay low and campaign only behind closed doors.
