Cleveland County officials warned residents near the Little River to be ready to evacuate Sunday morning, according to a notice from the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Senate passed bipartisan legislation Friday night to strengthen the administration's hand in global trade talks, clearing the way for a highly unpredictable summer showdown in the House. The vote was 62-37 to give Obama authority to complete trade deals that Congress could approve or reject, but not change. A total of 48 Republicans supported the measure, but only 14 of the Senate's 44 Democrats backed a president of their own party on legislation near the top of his second-term agenda.
WASHINGTON (AP) — An ex-convict likely had help from others holding a family captive inside their mansion for at least 18 hours, authorities said. During their ordeal, the business executive and his wife told others to stay away — even ordering a pizza deliverer to leave two pies at the door — as they frantically arranged for $40,000 in cash to be dropped off at the home. But once the money was left on the seat of a red sports car in the family's garage, Daron Dylon Wint struck and stabbed Savvas Savopoulos, the CEO of the American Iron Works company where he had once worked as a welder, Wint's charging document said. At a court hearing Friday, Wint was ordered held in jail on a murder charge.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A magnitude-4.8 earthquake struck a rural area of southern Nevada on Friday, shaking buildings more than 100 miles away and shutting down a busy Las Vegas interchange as road-tripping travelers were descending on Sin City for Memorial Day weekend. The U.S. Geological Survey revised an earlier report that pinned the magnitude of Friday's earthquake at 5.4. The temblor hit at 11:47 a.m. about 24 miles southwest of the small town of Caliente, and most of Southern Nevada felt it, along with parts of Utah including St. George and Cedar City, the USGS said.
