The skies have cleared, but flooding is still a top concern after Hurricane Irene. Many rivers and creeks are expected to crest in New Jersey and bring new flooding. We'll also take you to Plattsville, New York, which was washed away by the storm. We'll talk to a reporter from YNN who is stuck in the Catskills town. Plus, polygamist leader Warren Jeffs is in a coma in a Texas hospital just weeks after he was convicted of sexually assaulting two girls he claimed were his "spiritual wives." And, we'll have the latest developments from Libya.
