After a brief spell as a hurricane, Barry continued to churn a swath of flooding and torrential rain from Louisiana and Mississippi to eastern Arkansas.

Details: The National Weather Service issued flash-flooding warnings on Saturday for the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts, as the storm brings with it torrential rain and potentially "life-threatening flooding" — which the National Hurricane Center forecast could continue into the middle of the coming week. On Sunday, Barry was downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression.

We're losing the war on the coronavirus

Chart: Danielle Alberti/Axios

By any standard, no matter how you look at it, the U.S. is losing its war against the coronavirus.

Why it matters: The pandemic is not an abstraction, and it is not something that’s simmering in the background. It is an ongoing emergency ravaging nearly the entire country, with a loss of life equivalent to a Sept. 11 every three days — for four months and counting.

President Trump on Friday evening commuted the sentence of his longtime associate Roger Stone, according to two senior administration officials. Stone in February was sentenced to 40 months in prison for crimes including obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress.

Why it matters: The controversial move brings an abrupt end to the possibility of Stone spending time behind bars. He had been scheduled to report to prison on July 14.
