New flood warning for Houston as death toll rises
The National Weather Service issued a new flash flood warning on Wednesday for Houston where storms have left five people dead and turned neighborhoods into lakes in the fourth most-populous U.S. city. Southwest of Dallas, police evacuated people living near a dam that threatened to burst due to surging floodwaters as emergency officials searched for bodies from storms that killed at least 18 in Texas and Oklahoma. Water had topped the Padera dam, about 25 miles (40 kms) southwest of Dallas, and police in Midlothian said they have called on people living downstream to evacuate and move livestock to higher ground in case the structure gives way.

Appeals court rules with states challenging Obama's immigration action

Obama delivers remarks at the Memorial Day observance at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VirginiaBy Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's plan to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation was dealt another setback on Tuesday when a U.S. appeals court refused to lift a block put in place by 26 states that argued Obama overstepped his authority. By a 2-1 vote that could pave the way to a Supreme Court ruling, the judges from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled that Obama's executive action should remain on hold pending further judicial proceedings. The decision further delays Obama's immigration order, which was first blocked by a Brownsville, Texas lower court judge in February.

Colorado movie massacre defense: We need to talk about James

File photo of James Holmes sitting in court for an advisement hearing at the Arapahoe County Justice Center in CentennialBy Daniel Wallis and Keith Coffman CENTENNIAL, Colo. (Reuters) - In a hushed courtroom on the outskirts of Denver, defense lawyers played family videos of a young boy sitting on a sofa in shorts and a T-shirt, playing on a slide in a park, and frolicking in waves on a sunlit beach. The films gave no hint of the violence that would later be committed by James Holmes, who could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering 12 people and wounding 70 others by opening fire inside a suburban Denver multiplex in July 2012. Painting a picture of a bright, normal child who could have belonged to any member of the jury before he fell prey to severe mental illness that runs in his family, Holmes' lawyers will seek to save the now 27-year-old's life.
