SUMMARY: Hardline Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called for a vote to oust Speaker Mike Johnson, but the motion was quickly rejected by a vote of 359-43.

Straight-line winds can be just as dangerous as tornadoes, with 100 mph winds causing extensive damage in downtown Houston.

SUMMARY: Daisy Ridley stars in the new film “Young Woman and the Sea,” based on the true story of Trudy Ederle, the first woman to swim across the English Channel in 1926.
