Deadly weather in the Southeast killed 15 people and injured dozens more, authorities said Sunday, as residents along the Georgia-Florida line braced for more intense, fast-moving storms — including unusually strong "long track" twisters.
On Sunday, an apparent tornado blew through a mobile home park in rural Cook County in southern Georgia — sheering off siding, upending homes and killing seven people, officials said.
Coroner Tim Purvis said the tornado "leveled" the park before dawn Sunday and that emergency responders searched for survivors for hours after the twister struck. Purvis said the park had about 40 mobile homes, and roughly half were destroyed. The area was cordoned off by police.

President Donald Trump is striking a more unifying tone as he gets down to business on his second full day in the White House.
Speaking in the East Room of the White House during a swearing-in ceremony for 30 new "assistants to the president," Trump told his top advisers that they're in the White House not to "help ourselves" but to "devote ourselves to the national good."
"This is not about party, this is not about ideology. This is about country, our country. It's about serving the American people," he said.

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, said the White House press secretary gave "alternative facts" when he inaccurately described the inauguration crowd as "the largest ever" during his first appearance before the press this weekend.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer gathered the press to deliver a five-minute statement Saturday in which he issued multiple falsehoods, including declaring erroneously that "this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe," NBC News reported.
Asked on "Meet the Press" why Spicer used his first appearance before the press to dispute a minimal issue like the inauguration crowd size, and why he used falsehoods to do so, Conway pushed back.
"You're saying it's a falsehood and Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that," she told NBC's Chuck Todd.

A Trump administration official responded to the women's marches yesterday after Press Secretary Sean Spicer ignored shouted questions about the matter on Saturday, NBC News reported.
The statement from the Trump administration official said it was a "shame" that the March for Life next Friday "will not get anywhere near the same amount of coverage that this march got—and those pro-life members were NOT welcome at the Women’s March."
"The organizers noted that their platform is pro-choice and they revoked partnership status’ from pro-life groups," the statement continued.
President Donald Trump, who spent his first full day in office berating the media over their coverage of his inauguration, will spend Sunday engaged in more routine matters, like overseeing the swearing in of high-level staffers.
On the second full day of his administration, Trump will see the "assistants to the president" sworn in, according to his press secretary, Sean Spicer. He'll also hold a reception for law enforcement officers and first responders who helped with his inauguration as he celebrates his 12th wedding anniversary.
Trump has said that he'll consider Monday his first real day in office.

Presidents typically avoid facts and figures when delivering inaugural addresses, serving up a blend of broad platitudes and generalities to lay out a vision. President Donald Trump was no different in that regard.

A bright neon piece of rock 'n' roll history is going up for auction — a marquee from the legendary Los Angeles club, Whisky a Go Go. The 13-foot sign, with letters alight in bright pink, adorned the West Hollywood club in the '80s and '90s, during the heyday of punk, new wave and grunge. Saco River Auction Co. is putting it up for bid Wednesday.

Donald Trump promised an “unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout” for his inauguration but crowd estimates, though difficult to gauge, appear to cast doubt on that claim.
