Drivers Stranded, Homes Damaged by Houston-Area Flash Flooding

File photo. (iStock/Thinkstock)(HOUSTON) -- Flash flooding in Houston has left roads blocked, drivers stranded and homes destroyed, according to officials.

Roadways in the Houston area are blocked, drivers are stranded and homes have been destroyed due to flash flooding, according to officials.

Between 6 and 10 inches of rain had fallen in the region by early Tuesday, with additional rain possible.

As a result of the rainfall and flooded roadways, the National Weather Service issued a flash flood emergency for the Texas counties of Harris and Fort Bend. Residents are urged not to travel unless they are fleeing a flooded area. That emergency was set to expire at 2:45 a.m. local time.

The high water shut down the Katy Freeway eastbound and westbound at the 610 West loop.

Hundreds of homes are currently impacted by the flooding, Harris County Emergency management said.

The White Oak Bayou in Houston is rapidly rising and spilling over highways. It is currently at major flood stage and is expected to rise to more than 40 feet, according to the National Weather Service. The last time the bayou crested to this level was during Hurricane Ike in 2008.

Those conditions caused some fans at Houston’s Toyota Center to remain in their seats following Monday’s Western Conference Finals basketball game between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors.

Fans and players were asked not to leave the arena following the Rockets’ 128-115 Game 4 victory.

The flash flooding follows a series of deadly, powerful storms across the southern Great Plains. Earlier Monday, a tornado ripped through Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border, killing at least 13 people.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott added 24 counties Monday to the list of those where he has declared a state of emergency, and he said with more rain in the forecast, he could add additional counties.

Iraq Launches Offensive to Drive Back ISIS from Province

iStock/Thinkstock(BAGHDAD) -- An operation to drive ISIS out of the Iraqi province of Anbar is underway, according to officials.

In an announcement on state-run television Tuesday, the Iraqi government said the army would be supported by both Sunni and Shiite militias.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has expressed confidence that Iraqi forces will retake the province from the extremist group. His assertion came earlier this month, shortly after the fall of the provincial capital Ramadi, just 70 miles west of Baghdad.

State Department to Unveil Timetable for Releasing Clinton's Emails

Scott Olson/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The State Department on Tuesday is expected to file its schedule for releasing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails as requested by a judge last week.

The judge requested the department release them in batches every 60 days, and on Tuesday, we should find out when that will start.

Campaign reporters and Clinton have been demanding to know when the emails would finally be made public.

The State Department’s Office of Information Programs and Services and its lawyers -- better known as the FOIA office, which stands for Freedom of Information Act -- have been tasked with sorting, reading, redacting and reviewing paper copies of what now amounts to hundreds of thousands of pages of documents.

They’ve established a full-time staff, with one project manager, two case analysts, nine FOIA reviewers and a slew of additional information analysts who have been working since April.

The text they must analyze includes 55,000 pages encompassing more than 30,000 emails from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account, spanning from 2009 to 2013.

They’ve also been tasked with first finding and then reviewing any all documents and communications from all of 2011 and 2012 authored by or sent to 10 separate senior State Department officials having anything to do with Libya (and not limited to Benghazi).

Pair of Studies Finds More Evidence of Coffee's Benefits

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Forget the bar. If you're looking for love, stop at the local coffee shop because apparently caffeine puts the mojo in a cup of joe.

A small field study found men who chatted up women at cafes surrounded by the pleasant aromas of coffee and pastries were more likely to walk away with a phone number.

Researchers say caffeine stimulates blood flow and social interest.

On another note, a larger scientific study found men who drink two or three cups a day can reduce their risk of erectile dysfunction by up to 42 percent. Drinking coffee even lowered the risk for obese and hypertensive men but not for diabetics.

Charter Communications Agrees to Buy Time Warner Cable

Chris Hondros/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Another cable mega-merger is in the works. This time, it's Charter Communications buying its much larger rival Time Warner Cable for $55.33 billion.

Ahead of the deal, Time Warner -- the second biggest company in the country -- was valued at $78.7 billion.

Charter also wants to buy a smaller company, Bright House Networks, for $10 billion.

If regulators approve this, Charter would have a total of nearly 24 million cable and broadband customers in 41 states, making it almost as big as Comcast, which scrapped its own effort to buy Time Warner last month.

"With today's announcement, we have delivered on our commitment to maximizing shareholder value," said Robert D. Marcus, chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable, in a statement. "This agreement recognizes the unique value of Time Warner Cable, and brings together three great companies that share a common philosophy of strong operations, great products, robust network investment and putting customers first."

The three companies expect to close the agreement by the end of 2015.

Rockets Keep Season Alive with Game 4 Win over Warriors

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- The Houston Rockets still have a chance at making it to the NBA finals.

Thanks in part to a solid performance by guard James Harden, the team avoided being swept by the Golden State Warriors during Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals Monday night.

Harden scored a playoff career-high of 45 points, helping the Rockets defeat the Warriors 128-115. The Warriors now lead the series 3-1.

"We've got to do a better job of being consistent. We're a really good team when we're playing together -- we're moving the basketball, defensively we're locked in -- and tonight it showed," Harden said after the game.

Game 5 is scheduled for Wednesday night in Oakland, California.

Nick Cannon Says "America's Got Talent" Gets 'Extreme' for Its 10th Season

Eric Liebowitz/NBC(NEW YORK) -- The 10th anniversary season of NBC's America's Got Talent gets under way Tuesday night, and host Nick Cannon says this time around, you'll definitely see things you haven't seen before.

"I definitely say this each and every season, that this is the biggest and best season, but I’m so telling the truth about season 10 because this is the most extreme season," he tells ABC Radio while makig the promotial rounds for his #LoveSnapple campaign. 

"We did so many things that have never been done on the show before by focusing on extreme acts, and when we say extreme I mean everything from like Olympic activities to motocross to people blowing themselves up, setting themselves on fire. They’re really trying to take it to the line on season 10 and we had a lot of fun with it."

Aside from featuring more "extreme" kinds of acts, Cannon reveals they've also stretched the meaning of "America" in the title of the show.

"Another thing that’s interesting about season 10 is that we’ve kind of gone outside of the idea of just America. We’ve opened our doors and allowed any international talent to come in and be the best talent in America so, a lot of times it’s always been, 'Well we want you to be from America,'" Cannon says.  "But I think this time we’ve taken some of the best talent from around the world and displayed it for America."

When asked if there will be any kind of retrospective looking back at the past 10 years, Nick replies: "You know what, I didn’t think about that. It possibly may be towards once we get to the live shows at Radio City because I know they’re talking about bringing a lot of the winners back."

Cannon, an all-around entertainer -- he acts, he sings, he does comedy -- revealed which of his particular talents he would show off if he were to audition for the show.

"I would wanna put my best foot forward. So the things that I’m probably the best at…Man, I mean, I’ve never seen anyone act on America’s Got Talent so I don’t think you can come and like perform a monologue or a scene, so it’d probably be stand-up comedy," he says.

You can catch the 10th-season premiere of America's Got Talent at 8 p.m. ET.
