Unprecedented: Think about it: a 1,000-year flood. The amount of rainfall that drenched South Carolina over the weekend was unheard of, at least in our lifetimes. The chance of that much rain dropping in any given year is 1 in 1,000. And it absolutely wrecked the state. Five deaths. Homes and businesses flooded to the rooftops. Submerged roadways. Trapped people had to be rescued via helicopter. The capital city of Columbia — which had the rainiest day in its history yesterday — was under a curfew last night, and many homes were without power or water. And it’s not over yet. “Catastrophic flash flooding” is forecast to continue right into today.
Inquiry: Who bombed the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan? The medical charity said yesterday it wants an independent investigation after bombs blew up the hospital on Saturday. Twelve staffers and 10 patients — including three children — were killed. The destruction happened at nearly the same time af a U.S. airstrike. U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter promised a “transparent’ investigation.” Doctors Without Borders said a probe by any group potentially connected to the bombing would be “wholly insufficient.”
Merciless: The gunman showed no mercy. Not only did the mam in last week’s shooting at a college in Oregon kill nine people, one of his victims was a woman who used a wheelchair. One of the survivors — a mom of three who was shot in the hand — said the killer ordered the woman in the wheelchair to the ground. So she dropped to the floor, but then he told her to get back in the chair. As she tried to climb back into the chair, he shot her, the survivor told CNN’s Sara Sidner.
