More than 350 people have been killed and thousands are still stranded by historic flooding in the southern Indian state of Kerala, per the BBC, as a result of relentless monsoon rains.
The big picture: The massive floods paralyzed the region's infrastructure, perhaps most dramatically illustrated by the scene at Cochin International Airport, the fourth-largest in India, with floodwaters up to the wings of jets still parked there.
The House on Tuesday passed legislation to fund the government through Dec. 11, by a vote of 359-57.
Why it matters: The bill will avert a government shutdown when funding expires in eight days. Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said earlier that they hoped to hold a vote on the legislation on Tuesday evening.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told administration officials Monday to expect senior aides to be replaced at many government agencies, according to an internal email obtained by Axios.
Behind the scenes: Meadows asked the director of the White House Presidential Personnel Office John McEntee "to look at replacing the White House Liaisons (WHLs) at many of your agencies," according to the email. "John will be working with outgoing liaisons to explore other opportunities."
