    1. Buffalo shooting

    A hurricane watch has been issued for the west coast of Florida as now Hurricane Ian threatens to soon arrive packing powerful winds and dangerous storm surge. According to the National Hurricane Center, lan grew to hurricane strength this morning with winds of 75 mph and even higher wind gusts. Models project different scenarios about where it could make landfall in Florida, and how strong it could be by midweek. While Ian’s exact path remains uncertain, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has activated the National Guard, saying its impacts will be broadly felt throughout the state.

    2. Church shooting

    Gun violence also plagued the Southern California city of Laguna Woods yesterday after a shooting at a church left at least one person dead and five others injured. The shooting occurred at the Geneva Presbyterian Church during an event to honor a former pastor of a Taiwanese congregation that uses the church for its worship services. Police have a suspect in custody, Orange County Undersheriff Jeff Hallock said during a news conference yesterday. He is believed to be an Asian man in his 60s who doesn’t live in the area. The suspect was detained after a group of churchgoers were able to hogtie his legs with an extension cord and confiscate at least two handguns from him, Hallock said. Investigators are working to determine whether he has any connections to the church or its congregants. Police do not yet have a motive, Hallock said.
