many residents of the deep south are spending an uneasy night with the possibility of more tornadoes. at least three touched down last night in eastern mississippi and western alabama, damaging homes and businesses. one of the trees knocked down fell on to a vehicle trapping the passengers. others took down power lines. no serious injuries were reported, as well. and all the rainwater in arkansas is causing flooding and in jonesboro, it washed out a major road. look at that. a long-time resident says it's not the first time he's seen the road flooded but it's the first time the water took the road with it. the washout may have been triggered by an accident at that spot or the accident may have caused that -- by that huge gap. overseas now to india where there's a desperate search under way for survivors over an overpass collapse. a surveillance camera catching cars waiting to pass, and then the road above crashing down on them. dozens of people have been pulled out alive but officials fear more are buried in the rubble. at least 22 people were killed.

well, trump is still getting slammed over his comments on abortion, and he's now suggesting they were taken out of context. trump quickly took back his remarks after saying that women who have abortions should be punished if they were illegal. but he now says he may have misspoken, blaming the remark on what he calls a convoluted interview. hillary clinton is lashing out at the bernie sanders campaign, denying she accepted money from the fossil fuel industry. she was visibly angry when she was confronted by a greenpeace activist at a campaign event in new york. she said she is sick of the sanders campaign lying about her. but the sanders campaign fired back saying that clinton had indeed taken contributions from lobbyists for fossil fuel companies. concerns are about cyber security at the state department. experts found security gaps in a department system that could have allowed hackers to doctor visa applications or pilfer sensitive data from the half billion records on file. a spokesman for the state

department downplayed the security threat in a statement that was issued to abc news. police in albuquerque have released dramatic video of a drug bust that went horribly wrong. ending with a lieutenant shooting one of his own detectives. the video captures the chaos when police set out to take down two suspects in an undercover meth sting last year. but it only took seconds before the bust went bad and detective jacob grant was shot at least eight times. >> it's jacob. talk to me! talk to me. >> are you okay? >> no. >> come on. >> detective grant has undergone dozens of surgeries and will require medical care for the rest of his life. the lieutenant involved is no longer with the department. investigators still don't know what exactly went wrong. it turns out the meth involved in that bust was only worth about $60. a preliminary study finds that the more hits to the head suffered by young football players, the greater risk of cognitive problems later in life.
2:38 am
the study of 93 former players looked at head injuries serious enough to be classified as a concussion and those less serious. but researchers at boston university cautioned that the study was not definitive and meant to be only a first step. and instead of hat trick, it was a rat trick. the florida panthers hockey team gave away 10,000 rubber rats last night. the reason? they're really too complicated to explain. >> after the panthers scored their first goal, fans started throwing the rats onto the ice. the refs threatened to hit the home team with a delay of game penalty. so, then the new jersey devils fans at the game threw the rubber rats onto the ice. >> it didn't work despite the two rat penalties, florida won, 3-2. you know, 20 years ago the panthers got into the stanley cup finals, but before the first game, one of the players killed a rat in the locker room with a stick. so, that's why the successful season was called the year of the rat.
