SUMMARY: First responders from North Texas, including crews from Cedar Hill, Duncanville, and DeSoto, are deployed in San Antonio, ready to assist as Hurricane Barrel, a Category 1 storm, approaches. The Cedar Hill Fire Department's amb bus, capable of transporting up to 20 patients, is on standby to aid evacuation and relief efforts, especially for vulnerable populations like those in nursing homes. State officials, including acting Governor Dan Patrick, have urged residents in coastal areas from Corpus Christi to Island to prepare for the storm's significant wind, rain, and potential flooding. Emergency crews are poised for immediate response and recovery once the storm passes.

A 7-man team, including four firefighters from Cedar Hill, two from Duncanville and one from DeSoto are staged in San Antonio right now, waiting to see where they need to go once Beryl makes landfall.

Trump document case dismissed, but far from over

SUMMARY: Just hours before his official nomination, Donald Trump learned that the federal case involving classified documents against him was dismissed. The judge ruled that special prosecutor Jack Smith was improperly appointed. This is a significant short-term win for Trump, although legal analysts believe the case is far from over. The ruling was based on technicalities regarding Smith's appointment and funding by Attorney General Merrick Garland under the Constitution's appointments clause. Legal experts anticipate the federal government will appeal to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, though it's unlikely they'll hear the case before the November election.

Hours before he was officially named the Republican Party's presidential nominee, Donald Trump found out one of his criminal cases was dismissed. Legal experts say the case is far from over.
