    Heavy rains soaking much of Maryland have led to flash flooding in parts of the state. >> Read more trending news Main Street in Ellicott City, which is just outside of Baltimore, was filled with rushing brown floodwater Sunday afternoon.  A flash flood emergency was issued for Howard County at 4:40 p.m. The city was still recovering from a devastating 2016 flood that left two people dead.  Gov. Larry Hogan has issued a state of emergency and urged residents in flash flood warning areas to seek higher ground. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
  • Two McDonald’s customers with a beef about cheese filed a federal lawsuit alleging the restaurant giant is engaged in deceptive and misleading business practices in its sale of the Quarter Pounder with cheese.  >> Read more trending news McDonald’s used to sell four items in the Quarter Pounder category, with or without cheese, with prices ranging from 30 to 90 cents more for cheese than without, then at some point it ended this practice in-store, according to the lawsuit. 'These products cannot be purchased either separately or as part of a value meal, without the customer being overcharged and being compelled to pay for unwanted and undelivered cheese,' the lawsuit states, according to The Miami Herald. 'McDonald's is being unjustly enriched by these practices, because it receives payment for cheese it does not deliver to its customers.' Cynthia Kissner of Broward County and Leonard Werner of Miami-Dade County filed the class-action lawsuit May 8 asking for $5 million, according to the Herald.  The Quarter Pounder was trademarked in 1975 with the following ingredients; a frozen beef patty, sesame seed bun, tablespoon of diced fresh onion, mustard, ketchup and two Heinz pickle slices, according to USA Today. McDonald’s currently lists the ingredients as; a quarter-pound beef patty, sesame seed bun, pasteurized process American cheese, ketchup, pickle slices and onion.  The current menu only lists the Quarter Pounder with cheese, however customers have more sandwich options through the restaurant’s app, Andrew Lavin, the attorney who filed the suit, told the Herald.  “So McDonald's is offering two specific products: one is a Quarter Pounder and one is a Quarter Pounder with Cheese,” Lavin said. But if you go into the restaurant that option is not available to you.' McDonald’s has 21 days to respond to the lawsuit.  “We do not believe the claims in this lawsuit have legal merit,” the restaurant told USA Today. 'The advertised Quarter Pounder burger comes with cheese. We try to accommodate our customers’ requests by allowing them to customize their orders, such as a Quarter Pounder with no cheese.”
  • Flash floods struck a Maryland community wracked by similar flooding in 2016, authorities said, and water rescues were being carried out as raging brown waters surged through the streets Sunday. News outlets showed photos and video of turbulent water rushing down Main Street in Ellicott City, some 13 miles (20 kilometers) west of Baltimore. That's in the same area devastated by flash flooding in July 2016. There was no immediate report of any injuries. Footage of Sunday's flash flooding showed water surging around cars and pickup trucks and coursing over the top of their wheels. The Howard County Fire & EMS agency tweeted that water was above the first floor of some buildings. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan urged residents of the affected area to seek higher ground. Some residents of Ellicott City told The Baltimore Sun the flooding appeared to be worse than the 2016 flooding that killed two people and destroyed local businesses. The National Weather Service said a flash flood warning has been issued for the area, calling it an 'extremely dangerous situation' and urging motorists not to attempt to navigate flooded roads. Some Baltimore County roads were also flooded. A spokeswoman in Baltimore County said the fire department has received dozens of calls about cars stuck in high water and flooded basements.
  • The Latest on planning for a U.S-North Korea summit (all times EDT): 4:30 p.m. President Donald Trump says a U.S. team is in North Korea to 'make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong Un and myself.' Trump tweeted Sunday that North Korea 'has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial Nation one day.' The president added, 'It will happen!' though his exact meaning was not clear. The State Department said earlier Sunday that a team was in Panmunjom, which straddles the border inside the demilitarized zone, or DMZ. One can cross the border simply by stepping across a painted line. But moving beyond several footsteps into the North at Panmunjom would be rare for U.S. officials. Trump withdrew from the planned June 12 Singapore summit with Kim several days ago, but quickly announced that it could get back on track. ___ 2 p.m. The U.S. State Department says American officials are meeting with North Korean officials at the border village of Panmunjom as talks continue over a potential summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert says a 'U.S. delegation is in ongoing talks with North Korean officials' inside the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea that was created at the end of the Korean War. She says preparations are moving ahead for 'a meeting' between the two leaders. Trump said Saturday that conversations about a potential summit were 'going along very well.' He announced on Thursday that he was withdrawing from the scheduled June 12 meeting in Singapore, only to say on Friday that the summit might be back on.

  • An online fundraiser has surpassed its $55,000 goal for a suburban Indianapolis teacher who was shot while tackling an armed student. A local high school student launched the GoFundMe effort for science teacher Jason Seaman. Officials say the 29-year-old former college football player was shot three times Friday as he tackled the shooter inside his classroom at Noblesville West Middle School. By Sunday afternoon, more than $55,000 had been raised through the fundraiser. Donations ranged from $10 to over $3,000. Student witness Ethan Stonebraker told ABC News that Seaman ran toward the bullets as students sought cover during Friday's attack. Seaman was released from an Indianapolis hospital Saturday. The only other person shot, student Ella Whistler, was in critical but stable condition. Authorities haven't release the shooter's name.
  • Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized Sunday in Maine after he experienced low blood pressure and fatigue, a spokesman said. Just after 2 p.m., Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the 93-year-old Bush, said he was awake, alert and not in any discomfort. He said Bush would spend at least a few days in the hospital for observation. Bush was taken to Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford. A spokeswoman said Sunday all information would be released by the Bush family. Bush arrived in Maine for the summer May 20. Coming about a month after the death of his wife, Barbara, of 73 years, the family said the 41st president was eager to return to the family compound on Walker's Point. He has visited every summer since childhood, the only exception being the years of his World War II service. On Saturday, Bush attended a pancake breakfast at an American Legion post in Kennebunkport. He had been scheduled to attend a Memorial Day parade in the town Monday. Bush, who has a form of Parkinson's disease and a history of pneumonia and other infections, was hospitalized in Houston on April 22, the day after his wife's funeral, for an infection. He remained hospitalized for 13 days. Bush uses a wheelchair and an electric scooter for mobility. He has been hospitalized several times in recent years for respiratory problems.
  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture is recalling more than 228,000 pounds of Spam and another product made by Minnesota-based Hormel after four consumers complained about metal objects in the food.

  • President Donald Trump said Sunday a U.S. team was in North Korea to plan a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jon Un, raising expectations that the on-off-on meeting would indeed take place. The State Department said earlier that a team was in Panmunjom, which straddles the border inside the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, separating the North and South Korea. One can cross the border simply by stepping across a painted line, but moving beyond several footsteps into the North at Panmunjom would be rare for U.S. officials. Trump withdrew from a planned June 12 Singapore summit with Kim last Thursday, but quickly announced that it could get back on track. His tweet Sunday afternoon, which offered praise for the longtime U.S. adversary, was the latest signal that his concerns about the North's stance toward the summit had been allayed. 'Our United States team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong Un and myself,' he tweeted. 'I truly believe North Korea has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial Nation one day. Kim Jong Un agrees with me on this. It will happen!' South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, gave details about his surprise meeting Saturday with Kim in the Panmunjom truce village, saying Kim had committed to sitting down with Trump and to a 'complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.' U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tapped veteran American diplomat Sung Kim to handle pre-summit negotiations. On a separate but complementary track was the CIA team Pompeo set up last year when he headed the spy agency. And on a third track was a White House logistical group sent to Singapore on Sunday to prepare in case the summit takes place. It was led by Joe Hagin, White House deputy chief of staff for operations. Kim, the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines, also served as ambassador to South Korea and was part of the U.S. negotiating team that last held substantive denuclearization talks with North Korea during the George W. Bush administration in 2005. The Korean leaders' second summit in a month saw bear hugs and broad smiles. But their quickly arranged meeting Saturday appeared to highlight a sense of urgency on both sides of the world's most heavily armed border. The talks, which Moon said Kim Jong Un requested, capped a whirlwind 24 hours of diplomatic back and forth. They allowed Moon to push for a U.S.-North Korean summit that he sees as the best way to ease animosity that had some fearing a war last year. Kim may see a meeting with Trump as necessary to easing pressure from crushing sanctions and to winning security assurances in a region surrounded by enemies. Moon told reporters that Kim 'again made clear his commitment to a complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.' Moon added that Kim said he's willing to cooperate to end confrontation and work toward peace for the sake of the successful summit with Trump. Moon said he told Kim that Trump has a 'firm resolve' to end hostile relations with North Korea and initiate economic cooperation if Kim implements 'complete denuclearization.' 'What Kim is unclear about is that he has concerns about whether his country can surely trust the United States over its promise to end hostile relations (with North Korea) and provide a security guarantee if they do denuclearization,' Moon said. 'During the South Korea-U.S. summit, President Trump said the U.S. is willing to clearly put an end to hostile relations (between the U.S. and North Korea) and help (the North) achieve economic prosperity if North Korea conducts denuclearization,' he said. Kim, in a dispatch issued by the North's state-run news service earlier Sunday, 'expressed his fixed will on the historic (North Korea)-U.S. summit talks.' During Saturday's inter-Korean summit, the Korean leaders agreed to 'positively cooperate with each other as ever to improve (North Korea)-U.S. relations and establish (a) mechanism for permanent and durable peace.' They agreed to have their top officials meet again June 1. Moon said military generals and Red Cross officials from the Koreas will also meet separately to discuss how to ease military tensions and resume reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. Saturday's Korean summit came hours after South Korea expressed relief over revived talks for a Trump-Kim meeting. Despite repeated references to 'denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula' by the North, it remains unclear whether Kim will ever agree to fully abandon his nuclear arsenal. The North has previously used the term to demand the United States pull out its 28,500 troops in South Korea and withdraw its so-called nuclear umbrella security commitment to South Korea and Japan. The North hasn't openly repeated those same demands after Kim's sudden outreach to Seoul and Washington. Moon has insisted Kim can be persuaded to abandon his nuclear facilities, materials and bombs in a verifiable and irreversible way in exchange for credible security and economic guarantees. Moon said Sunday that the North's disarmament could still be a difficult process even if Pyongyang, Washington and Seoul don't differ over what 'complete denuclearization' of the peninsula means. Before he canceled the summit, Trump did not rule out an incremental approach that would provide incentives along the way to the North. Following an unusually provocative 2017 in which Kim's engineers tested a purported thermonuclear warhead and three long-range missiles theoretically capable of striking mainland U.S. cities, the North Korean leader has engaged in a flurry of diplomatic activity in recent months. He has had the summits with Moon and Chinese leader Xi Jinping, as well as two meetings with Pompeo. ___ Associated Press writer Kim Tong-hyung in Seoul contributed to this report.

  • While the Trump Administration has hailed economic and job gains over the past year and a half, the price of gasoline has jumped sharply in recent months for consumers and businesses, adding to the cost of everything from a daily commute, to a summer vacation, and the amount of money companies pay to ship their products around the country. And it’s starting to used by Democrats on Capitol Hill to take aim at the White House. “Gas prices have risen more than 25% since Trump took office,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR). “Overall world crude oil prices have increased over 75 percent in the past year,” said Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), as Democrats wrote President Donald Trump a letter earlier this week, asking him to do something about the rising cost of gasoline . Americans are paying the price at the pump for Trump’s chaotic approach to foreign policy. He hasn’t pressured Gulf leaders to lift their cap on oil output, or pursued diplomatic solutions in Yemen and Syria. The result? $3.89 a gallon #GasPrices pic.twitter.com/CTaW97cez9 — Senator Bob Menendez (@SenatorMenendez) May 23, 2018 Those numbers at the pump aren’t unusual for the Washington, D.C. area as just the ohter day, this reporter filled up on the way to work, and ha the pump shut off before the tank was full, when the total hit the $50 credit card limit at that station for a single transaction. Figures released in recent weeks by the Trump Administration clearly show the increase, with gas prices up on average by over 52 cents a gallon from the same time a year ago, at an average of $2.92 per gallon. The $2.92 per gallon is the highest average price at the pump on Memorial Day in four years – in 2014, gas was at an average of $3.67 per gallon, as Republicans blamed the energy policies of the Obama Administration, arguing for more oil exploration in the United States. Gas prices generally trended down the last few years, leading President Trump to proclaim where they stood on July Fourth of last year. Gas prices are the lowest in the U.S. in over ten years! I would like to see them go even lower. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 4, 2017 But since that tweet on July Fourth of last year, the price of gasoline has only gone up, and federal energy experts expect even more in the months ahead. “Relatively higher crude oil spot prices, higher gasoline demand, and falling gasoline inventories are all factors contributing to higher gasoline prices,” the Energy Information Administration reported last week. The EIA predicted an average of $2.90 per gallon for gasoline this summer.
