A.M. Buzz: Fatal floods, terror threats and good news

Seriously, three people have died, and it’s still wet outdoors. (See exactly how wet in your own town.) Some schools are closed, and roads too. Be careful if you must go out.

It’s been a decade since the 9/11 terror attacks, and some 17 percent of us are still shying away from such events as concerts at Wolf Trap, July 4th fireworks on the Mall or Nationals games, according to a new poll. The weather is a greater (but known) hazard.

More good news: a tree will grow (again) in Georgetown, thanks to a reader of the Daily Gripe blog.

Rebooting a rivalry that was scuttled nearly 15 years ago, Morehouse College and Howard University, two of the most prestigious historically black colleges and universities, take it back to the gridiron Saturday afternoon at RFK Stadium.

More fun in the, uh, sun? It’s also a big weekend for festivals, Going Out Guide tells us, especially in the suburbs. Hopefully, the rain will — mostly — let up. We’ll have all the news all weekend (and weekdays, too) here on PostLocal.
