10 Things You Need To Know Today!

1. Hurricane Dorian hits the Bahamas and threatens Florida

Hurricane Dorian crashed into Elbow Cay in the Bahamas’ Abaco Islands on Sunday as a catastrophic Category 5 storm. With top sustained winds of 185 mph and gusts up to 225 mph, it is the most powerful storm on record to strike the Bahamas. Dorian tore roofs from buildings and ripped down power lines as people sheltered in schools and other strong structures on high ground. “It’s devastating,” said Joy Jibrilu, director general of the Bahamas’ Ministry of Tourism and Aviation. “There has been huge damage to property and infrastructure. Luckily, no loss of life reported.” The hurricane continued west toward Grand Bahama Island and Florida, with its top sustained winds dropping to 165 mph early Monday. Authorities ordered evacuations of some coastal areas in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.

More than 600 Labor Day flights in the U.S. had been canceled as of Sunday afternoon, many of them in Florida as Dorian barreled toward the state’s coast.

The only recorded storm that was more powerful was Hurricane Allen in 1980, with 190 mph (305 kph) winds. That storm did not make landfall at that strength. “Catastrophic conditions” were reported in Abaco, with a storm surge of 18-23 feet (5.5-7 meters), and Dorian was expected to cross Grand Bahama later in the day “with all its fury,” the center said.

In the northern stretches of the archipelago, hotels closed, residents boarded up homes and officials hired boats to move people to bigger islands.

The government opened 14 shelters across the Bahamas. Dozens ignored evacuation orders, officials said. “The end could be fatal,” said Samuel Butler, assistant police commissioner. “We ask you, we beg you, we plead with you to get to a place of safety.”

Bahamas radio station ZNS Bahamas reported a mother and child in Grand Bahama called to say they were sheltering in a closet and seeking help from police.

Silbert Mills, owner of the Bahamas Christian Network, said trees and power lines were torn down in Abaco. “The winds are howling like we’ve never, ever experienced before,” said Mills, 59, who planned to ride out the hurricane with his family in the concrete home he built 41 years ago in central Abaco.

2. Death toll rises in West Texas mass shooting

The death toll from a mass shooting in West Texas rose to seven from five, police said Sunday. Police identified the alleged gunman as Seth Aaron Ator, a white 36-year-old male who had just been fired from his trucking job. Witnesses said he opened fire with an assault-style rifle after fleeing a routine traffic stop and hijacking a mail truck. Twenty-two people, including motorists and shoppers, were wounded between Odessa and Midland. Ator was killed by police after being cornered in a movie-theater parking lot.

The Saturday rampage was the second deadly mass shooting in Texas in four weeks. Police said there did not appear to be any link to domestic or international terrorism. “There are no definitive answers as to motive or reasons at this point,” Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke said.

3. Trump calls for Congress to help stop mass shootings

President Trump on Sunday called on Congress to work with him to “stop the menace of mass attacks.” Trump spoke hours after the nation’s latest deadly mass shooting occurred, in West Texas, and shortly after the death toll from the rampage rose to seven. Trump said any new laws would have to balance public safety with Second Amendment gun rights.

Trump said it would be “wonderful” to promise progress toward eliminating mass shootings, but that it was unrealistic. “We want to substantially reduce the violent crime,” he said. Trump came out in favor of stronger background checks for gun buyers after the shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school killed 17 people in 2018, but he backed off that proposal under pressure from the National Rifle Association.

4. Trump says China trade talks still on as tariffs take effect

President Trump said Sunday that trade talks with Beijing were still on even though both the U.S. and China imposed new tariffs on each other’s goods starting Sept. 1. “We are talking to China, the meetings in September, that hasn’t changed,” Trump said.

Trump’s new tariffs, which he recently raised to 15 percent from an initially-announced 10 percent, hit $112 billion worth of Chinese imports. China imposed retaliatory tariffs on some products on a list of $75 billion worth of newly-targeted U.S. imports. The U.S. tariffs, along with a second round due to hit Dec. 15, affect $300 billion in Chinese imports. J.P. Morgan estimated the levies could cost the average U.S. household $1,000 per year. [CNBC]

5. Hezbollah, Israel strikes raise tensions

Hezbollah on Sunday fired antitank missiles into northern Israel, which responded with artillery strikes against three villages in southern Lebanon. The exchange of fire came after Hezbollah threatened to retaliate over an Israeli airstrike in Syria that killed two of the Lebanese Shia Islamist group’s commanders.

The Hezbollah strike made good on the threat by targeting an Israeli military vehicle, Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV station said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is heading into contentious elections on Sept. 17, said Hezbollah’s strike was a failure. “We have no casualties, no injuries, not even a scratch,” he said.

Hong Kong students boycotted classes in a pro-democracy protest on Monday, the first day of the new school year. High school students gathered outside their schools, kneeling, holding hands, and chanting, “Free Hong Kong! Democracy Now!” Organizers estimated 9,000 or more students from more than 200 schools were participating.

Pro-democracy demonstrators also followed up a tense weekend of protests by disrupting transportation during rush hour, blocking train doors from closing in the city’s mass transit railway stations. Several editorials in Chinese state media condemned the protests against Hong Kong’s Beijing-backed government. An editorial on the state-run Xinhua news agency’s site said “the end is coming for those attempting to disrupt Hong Kong.” [The Guardian]

7. German president asks Poland’s ‘forgiveness’ on key World War II anniversary

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier marked the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II on Sunday by asking Poland’s forgiveness for the conflict. “This war was a German crime,” Steinmeier said during a ceremony attended by world leaders in the Polish city of Wielun, the target of one of the first Nazi bombings in the country. Elderly Polish war veterans also attended the event, as did a Holocaust survivor wearing a yellow Star of David and striped prison clothes like the ones Nazi death camp prisoners wore. “I bow to the victims of the attack in Wielun, I pay tribute to the Polish victims of German tyranny, and I ask for forgiveness,” Steinmeier said. More than 50 million people died in World War II, including 6 million Poles.

At a ceremony in Warsaw, Polish President Andrzej Duda spoke of the atrocious history suffered by Polish people during WWII and the “trauma” that they still carry today.The Polish President remembered the fallen and thanked the soldiers “who fought and sacrificed their lives for freedom.”
In an address on Sunday morning in Westerplatte, Gdansk, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki spoke of the huge material, spiritual, economic and financial losses Poland suffered in the war.
“We have to talk, we have to remember about the loses we suffered, we have to demand the truth, we have to demand compensation,” Morawiecki said.
War reparations remain a contentious issue in Poland — since coming to power in 2015, the Law and Justice (PiS) party has revived calls for compensation, Reuters reported. Germany made the last payment on reparations in 2010.
US Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Warsaw on Sunday at the commemoration ceremony to mark the 80th anniversary of Germany’s invasion of Poland. Two days later, on September 3, Britain and France declared war on Germany.
“During the five decades of untold suffering and death that followed the outbreak of World War II, the Polish people never lost hope, they never gave in to despair, and they never let go of their thousand-year history,” Pence said.
“In the years that followed this day 80 years ago, their light shone in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it,” he added. [CNN, The Associated Press]

Actor-comedian Kevin Hart suffered “major back injuries” in a car crash near his California home on Sunday. Hart was riding as a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda he had bought in July as a 40th birthday gift to himself. The driver, Jared Black, lost control and the car fell down an embankment.

9. Defending champion Djokovic out at U.S. Open

Top-seeded Novak Djokovic dropped out of the U.S. Open on Sunday, pulling out in the third set of his match against fellow Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka due to an injured shoulder. Djokovic, the defending U.S. Open men’s singles champ, said he had been bothered by the shoulder for weeks, and was taking painkillers.

Wawrinka was leading the tennis match 6-4, 7-5, 2-1 when Djokovic walked up to the net to say he couldn’t go on. Wawrinka now advances to the quarterfinals to play Daniil Medvedev. “I congratulate Stan,” Djokovic said. “He’s a great player. I really wish him all the best the rest of the tournament.” The three-time champion tersely added, “I don’t want to talk about my injuries. I said that in the past. I’m sticking to that.”

Later, when asked how he knew when to draw the line and throw in the towel, Djokovic elaborated: “It’s hard to say when you don’t know what you feel anymore, to be honest. The pain was constant for weeks now. Some days higher, some days with less intensity, and obviously [I’ve been] taking different stuff to kill the pain instantly. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t.”

This unfortunate turn was prefigured during Djokovic’s second-round match, when he received treatment for his shoulder on court during his win over Juan Ignacio Londero. Some doubted the severity of the injury at that time, but retiring from a Grand Slam fourth-round match still seems a steep price to pay for credibility.

Djokovic’s admission that he was taking painkillers, and of the internal conflict he experienced trying to decide whether to go on, probably explain the distracted state he was in for much of the time after he lost the first set. The crowd, enthusiastically pulling for Wawrinka, clearly wasn’t going to inspire him to transcend his pain and anxiety.

“I don’t really pay too much attention on that,” Djokovic said of both the earlier criticism and the crowd’s support for his opponent. “I like to respect others. I hope that others can respect me and my decision [to retire].”

Justin Verlander pitched the third no-hitter of his career on Sunday, leading the Houston Astros to a 2-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Verlander (17-5) struck out 14 batters, a crowning achievement in a dominant season. He is the sixth pitcher in Major League Baseball history to throw three or more career no-hitters.

The others include legendary pitchers Sandy Koufax, Cy Young, and Nolan Ryan, who holds the record with seven no-hitters. Verlander said he was “definitely aware” that he was making history. “It means a lot,” Verlander said. “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t know that. I’ve come so close. Since I’ve had two, I think I’ve blown two in the ninth and another couple in the eighth.” [The Associated Press]
