BRUNSWICK, Ga. — The trial of three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery has put Brunswick back in the national spotlight. Arbery was the 25-year old Black man shot to death last year while jogging through a neighborhood.

Artist Marvin Weeks memorialized Arbery in a mural that has become a focal point for racial justice advocates in this town on the Georgia coast.

Even as climate change increases the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, from fires to floods and hurricanes, two-thirds of Americans say if their home is hit they would rather rebuild than relocate, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds.

Republicans were the most likely to say they would hunker down and rebuild (81%). But more than 6 in 10 Democrats and two-thirds of independents said so as well.

Four nursing home patients are dead and 14 hospitalized after they were evacuated to a facility in Independence, La., ahead of Hurricane Ida.

Three of the deaths are confirmed to be storm-related, according to the Louisiana Department of Health.

Now, the department is responding to complaints of unsafe conditions at the site, named Waterbury. It's unclear what the facility's intended use is, but it is not a registered nursing home.
