Here's what we know about Barry and what to expect

Here's what we know about Barry and what to expect Tropical Storm Barry, the first tropical system to strike the US this year, is just off the Gulf Coast and gaining power. Here's what you should know: How strong is the storm and where is it? Barry was churning midday Friday in the Gulf of Mexico, with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph, per the National Hurricane Center's advisory at 11 a.m. ET. The storm at that time was about 100 miles southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River and about 115 miles southeast of Morgan City, Louisiana. Barry is expected to grow into a hurricane by the time it makes landfall, the National Hurricane Center said.

Overcrowding at the facilities was described as "a ticking time bomb" in a June inspector general's report. While Democrats have lambasted the administration over the treatment of migrants, Pence has accused them of initially denying there was a crisis at the border and then delaying funding for the facilities. Pence says he will bring TV cameras when he visits the McAllen, Texas, facility to prove it is providing needed care, but also to show it "is a system that is overwhelmed."

Alaska faces deadline on severe budget cuts

The Alaska Legislature has until Friday to meet a constitutional deadline to override Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s vetoes of more than $400 million in state spending, including $130 million for higher education. The University of Alaska says it may lay off more than 1,000 and cut dozens of programs if the cuts go through. The legislature met Wednesday to vote on whether to override the vetoes, but only 38 lawmakers convened in the state capital, not enough to reach the necessary 45 votes. The remaining 22 legislators, who support the governor, met at a middle school 800 miles away. Alaska is having money troubles due to a decline in oil production and worldwide oil and gas prices.
