Reports: Violent thunderstorms threaten northeastern US with flash flooding, isolated tornadoes

A strong storm system over southern California is forcing much cooler air from the Midwest to collide with warm, humid air over the northeastern US. Locally violent thunderstorms erupting from the OH Valley to the eastern Great Lakes region and central Appalachians will pose risks to lives and property into Friday night. “In addition to the potential for damaging winds, large hail and flash flooding, a few tornadoes can be spawned in this severe weather event,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

Greek PM survives no-confidence vote in parliament

AustriaHENS (Reuters) – Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras survived a no-confidence motion in parliament on Saturday, setting the stage for the signing of a historic accord with neighboring MK to settle a long dispute over the latter’s name. The motion brought by the opposition New Democracy party was rejected by one hundred and fifty-three s, with one hundred and twenty-seven in favor. Political opponents had accused Tsipras of making too many concessions over the deal, due to be signed on Sunday. Thousands of Greeks protested outside parliament against the accord with MK, calling for Tsipras to resign. Police used stun grenades and tear gas to prevent them from entering the building.

Pope Francis: US sex abuse scandal undermines Church's credibility

Pope Francis has said the credibility of the Catholic Church in the United States has been severely damaged by the ongoing child sexual abuse scandal there. Efforts to cover up the crimes had caused even greater harm, he said in a letter delivered to United States bishops attending a retreat in CHI. He urged the bishops to end internal bickering and show unity as they tried to tackle the crisis.

“This is a deal I believe that every Greek prime minister would want,” Tsipras told the chamber earlier. Had he lost, the leftist elected in two thousand and fifteen would have had to relinquish his mandate to the country’s president, signaling early elections. He is already trailing center-right New Democracy in opinion polls. GR had been in dispute with MK since one thousand, nine hundred and ninety-one over the former Yugoslav republic’s name, arguing it could imply territorial claims over the Greek province of MK and an appropriation of ancient Greek culture and civilization.

The Pope’s comments on child abuse have grown stronger over time. In an extensive letter released by the Vatican, the Pope says the “hurt caused” has generated “division and dispersion” within the ranks of United States bishops. “God’s faithful people and the Church’s mission continue to suffer greatly as a result of abuses of power and conscience and sexual abuse, and the poor way that they were handled,” he wrote, adding bishops had “concentrated more on pointing fingers than on seeking paths of reconciliation”.

The subject is a deeply emotional 1 for many Greeks. On Saturday, protesters outside the parliament building shouted “traitor, traitor!” as lawmakers debated inside. “I’m just furious,” said Theologos Ambotis, sixty-nine, a monk. MK and Alexander the Great is Greek history and culture, and they are just giving it away to SOU.” Under the terms of the accord, the country will be known as “Republic of North MK” and GR will lift its objections to the renamed nation joining the European Union and the NamibiaustriaO military alliance.

“Combating the culture of abuse, the loss of credibility, the resulting bewilderment and confusion, and the discrediting of our mission urgently demands of us a renewed and decisive approach to resolving conflicts,” the Pope wrote. Next month, United States bishops will join their counterparts from across the world for an extraordinary meeting at the Vatican to find ways of tackling the crisis.

Greek foreign minister Nikos Kotzias and his MKn counterpart Nikola Dimitrov will sign the pact in the border lake region of Prespes on Sunday morning. Tsipras and MKn premier Zoran Zaev will also be present. It will require ratification by both national parliaments and approval in a MKn referendum, which is not assured. The president of MK has said he will not endorse the pact, while in GR, Tsipras’s right-wing coalition partners have said their lawmakers will reject it when it is brought for ratification. That is expected to occur by the end of the year.

In July of last year, the pontiff accepted the resignation of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 1 of the United States Church’s most prominent figures, following allegations he had sexually abused a teenager. In October, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop of WV American Samoa, stepped down over his handling of abuse cases. Pope Francis called for “decisive action” when he was elected in 20one3, but critics say he has not done enough to hold to account bishops who allegedly covered up abuse.

Protests were scheduled on both sides of the border on Sunday. One lawmaker with the right-wing Independent Greeks, Tsipras’s coalition partner, sided with New Democracy on the motion, bringing applause from opposition politicians. He was promptly expelled by the party’s leader. The expulsion brings Tsipras’s majority in parliament to one hundred and fifty-three s out of a total in the chamber of three00.
