Former President Jimmy Carter Begins Cancer Treatment

The former president says he is ‘ready for anything’ as he begins the fight against melanoma, a serious form of cancer.

The cancer was found in his liver and then in his brain, but very well may have started in his skin. Carter underwent his first chemotherapy treatment this afternoon. Doctors are using a promising new drug, called Keytruda. It was approved by the FDA last year, after positive clinical trials show it targeted mutations in genes, and strengthened the immune system to fight melanoma.

President Obama Will Mark 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

President Obama is set to travel to New Orleans for the commemoration. He will likely highlight the ongoing rebuild of the region, and will also focus on climate change.

Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, and created massive flooding to the city of New Orleans. Many people lost their homes, and businesses. 1800 people died in the storm.

A Flash Flood Watch Tonight, Across the DMV

A cold front will bring showers and heavy thunderstorms to our area this evening…especially across the Baltimore and Washington DC metro areas.

A line of rain (heavy in spots with some embedded storms possible) will move through from the Blue Ridge into the DC Metro and continuing east to the Eastern Shore. These storms have the potential for gusty winds but more likely very heavy rainfall, with possible flooding is some areas.

The line of storms will be east of our area by about midnight as skies clear, and humidity drops.
