|Duke shuts natgas plant due to Florence floods, coal ash leak feared
Duke also said it cannot rule out the possibility that coal ash from another plant is flowing into nearby waters. Water breached the cooling lake dam at Duke's 625-megawatt natural gas L.V.

|'Hotep' — community action in East New York
East New York, a residential neighborhood in the eastern section of Brooklyn, has battled poverty since the 1950s.

"There have been no changes to the deconfliction mechanism as a result of this unfortunate event," the military official said on condition of anonymity, referring to Monday's downing following Israeli air strikes. The arrangement was agreed by Israel and Russia in 2015, when Russian forces intervened alongside the regime in Syria to avoid clashes between their militaries inside Syrian territory.
