Why Did Trump Work Again With Democrats? ‘He Likes Us,’ Schumer Says

But Mr. Schumer, who had engaged in a public feud with Mr. Trump for months, thinks that Democrats — meaning Mr. Schumer himself — seem to have finally figured out a way to exert influence on the president without getting too close to a man most Democratic voters view as unfit to serve.“He likes us. He likes me, anyway,” Mr. Schumer was overheard saying on the Senate floor on Thursday, adding that he had told the president, “You’re much better off if you can sometimes step right and sometimes step left.”Moving only in one direction, Mr […]

Amid Hurricane Chaos, Domestic Abuse Victims Risk Being Overlooked

PhotoA shelter set up in the NRG Center in Houston, Tex., during Hurricane Harvey.Credit Christopher Lee for The New York TimesNatural disasters like hurricanes Harvey and Irma can displace people and leave them scrambling to find stability and routine.But during catastrophes, victims of domestic violence face a unique challenge: seeking safety from their abusers.Most evacuees are seeking shelter but domestic violence survivors face a “double whammy” of escaping the danger of their abuser and finding safety from the looming disaster, said Ruth Glenn, the executive director of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.Disasters leave physical and social environments in disarray and are likely to increase any person’s or family’s vulnerability to violence, according to the World Health Organization.Loss of property, inadequate food and water, unraveling social networks and loss of income heighten stress during disasters, which can leave domestic abuse victims particularly vulnerable, the W.H.O. said.These times of upheaval make it difficult to collect data to compare instances of domestic violence, but the data that exists suggests that natural disasters might spur an uptick in domestic and sexual violence and child abuse.“Isolation, safety, resources and housing: Those are the things that are exacerbated by a storm for these victims,” said Pamela Jenkins, a professor at the University of New Orleans who has researched violence against women, disasters and community response, particularly in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.During and after a disaster, it can be more challenging for these women to obtain services and aid. Domestic violence hotlines may be disconnected, and emergency responders can be overwhelmed, sometimes leaving abuse victims to fend for themselves. That, in turn, can lead them to return to or remain with their abuser.If people evacuate with their abuser, they may find themselves cut off from resources, such as family, friends and neighbors who have been helping them, said Brenda D. Phillips, the associate dean of Ohio University Chillicothe where she oversees its emergency response training center.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. Please try again later.You are already subscribed to this email.View all New York Times newsletters.“When you’re trying to rescue lives, domestic violence remains that hidden thing,” she added.A 2010 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said approximately 42 million women in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.The Bureau of Justice Statistics reported in 2006 that 30 percent of female homicide victims were murdered by their intimate partners — compared with 5 percent of male homicide victims — but other analyses put it at as much as 50 percent.In the aftermath of disasters, financial help can sometimes go to the abuser, further oppressing the victim, Ms. Phillips said.“If an aid agency cuts a check to the family, who controls that check?” she asked. “And if you’ve lost your home, and the shelter is now destroyed, and your abuser has the check, and you’re displaced from your family and friends because you’re halfway across the state or country now, you’re really in a difficult situation.”The Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence reported that after Katrina, women were being assaulted by their partners in emergency shelters.In the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew around Miami in 1992, spousal abuse calls to the local help line increased by 50 percent, and more than one-third of 1,400 surveyed residents reported that someone in their home had lost verbal or physical control in the two months after the hurricane, according to the The Gender and Disaster Network.Children compound these obstacles, as day care centers and schools shut down. Custody arrangements may also leave victims separated from their children […]

Irma Shifting Forecasts: It’s All a Matter of Probability

Hurricane Irma has confounded even the experts. Brian McNoldy, a researcher at the University of Miami and respected blogger on tropical storms and hurricanes, decided on Thursday to evacuate from South Florida with friends and his two dogs and drive to the Tampa area.Continue reading the main storyHe said he was willing to take on the risk of a powerful storm, but the prospect of what at the time appeared to be the eyewall of a Category 4 or even 5 slamming into Miami with obliterating force gave him “a sickening vibe,” he said. He recalled thinking, “We don’t want to be here.”When Irma’s track shifted west, they drove back to face what he expected to be a rough but survivable blow.Even considering his own actions, he says officials in cities on the west coast of Florida could have been more attentive.“From my perspective, the east coast and the west coast have been equally in play for the last week,” he said […]

Hurricane Irma Live Updates: Storm Strikes Cuba and Turns Toward Florida Keys

“Now, we must think of the safety of our emergency operations staff and first responders and evacuate them out of harm’s way.”The United States Coast Guard in Key West has already evacuated all its employees. — FRANCES ROBLESIrma strikes the Turks and Caicos, and the BahamasIrma lashed the southern Bahamas on Friday with intense winds and rain, leaving a trail of downed trees and power lines, damaged roofs, and scattered debris.Mayaguana and Inagua were among the first Bahamian islands to feel the impact. “It was very loud,” said Marcus Sands, an assistant superintendent with the police in Abraham’s Bay, Mayaguana’s main settlement. “You could hear the debris flying around crashing into buildings.”.The National Hurricane Center said the eye of the storm was expected to move just north of Cuba and the central Bahamas for the rest of Friday and Saturday.Irma was predicted to dump 10 to 15 inches of rain on northern Cuba, with some areas seeing as much as 20 inches. The storm passed Baracoa, a town near Cuba’s eastern tip, on Friday morning, but wrought less havoc there than was expected. Cuban state media reported winds of about 90 m.p.h. and said that waves had towered over the city’s breakwater, causing localized flooding.In the Turks and Caicos, Virginia Clerveaux, the director of Department of Disaster Management and Emergencies, said officials were assessing the damage, which included torn-off roofs, electricity outages and widespread flooding.Irma is among the strongest hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean and one of the five most forceful storms to hit the Atlantic basin in 82 years, according to the National Hurricane Center.Get updates about news across the United States via Twitter and in the Morning Briefing newsletter.Continue reading the main story […]

As White Nationalist in Charlottesville Fired, Police ‘Never Moved’

Officials have insisted that no “stand down” order was issued, and a state police spokeswoman said troopers did not hear the shot. But many people suspect the inaction was deliberate, because just a month earlier, the police were heavily criticized for responding harshly at a Ku Klux Klan rally where anti-Klan protesters were sprayed with tear gas and arrested.On the day of the “Unite the Right” rally, Aug. 12, only eight arrests were made, even with 125 local officers, hundreds of National Guard troops, the state police and neighboring police agencies present. Those arrested included James A. Fields, the driver who has been charged with murder in the death of Heather D. Heyer.Investigators are also close to making arrests in the case of DeAndre Harris, 20, a local teacher’s aide and African-American who was beaten with a metal pipe and slabs of wood in a parking garage just a few yards from Police Headquarters, the city manager, Maurice Jones, said.The police chief and mayor declined requests to be interviewed.Mr. Jones said the police had developed two “tactical mobile force contingency plans” that were to be used as “quick responders” to skirmishes and fights that were popping up throughout downtown. The officers were instructed to “respond to fights directly” and to make arrests in teams and squads, he said.“We saw plenty of video of officers stepping in to de-escalate situations,” Mr. Jones said.He stressed that the city had tried to prevent the rally, but that a federal judge had ordered the city to grant the permit. But even a member of the City Council asked the city manager and the police chief why there was an “apparent unwillingness of officers to directly intervene during overt assaults.”The city did not use a number of security measures recommended by the state police, said Brian Moran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety and homeland security, including a ban on weapons and sticks of all kinds.
