Holiday Storms Poised to Bring Rain, Snow Across U.S.

Storms brewing in the U.S. are set to bring rain, snow and winds that could make holiday travel a messy affair, NBC News reported. A soggy north-south storm system that slammed the Pacific northwest and Southern California Sunday night, bringing down trees and power lines, is pushing eastward, threatening to deliver rain and gusty winds along the Gulf Coast and snow in the Upper Midwest on Tuesday. The storm is then expected to batter the East Coast with wet and windy weather on Wednesday — right at the prime pre-holiday travel time. The Midwest lakes and central Mississippi Valley may be the only areas likely to see a white Christmas, as snowfall is expected Wednesday evening and on Thursday.

No Terror Link for Driver Who Hit French Pedestrians: Prosecutor

A driver who ran down 13 pedestrians in France while shouting "Allahu Akbar!" (Arabic for "God is great”) has a known history of psychiatric problems and was not carrying out "a terrorist act," a prosecutor said Monday, NBC News reported. The man, who was arrested after Sunday's rampage in the city of Dijon, has sought psychiatric assistance 157 times in the past 13 years, the prosecutor told a news conference. There is also "nothing in his history that ties him to Islamic activity." The incident had happened one day after police in a suburb of Tours shot and killed a man also shouting "Allahu Akbar" who had stabbed and wounded three officers in a police station. Read »
