Brett Kavanaugh's supreme court confirmation has quickly moved from safe to uncertain after a woman came forward with an 11th-hour sexual assault allegation.

Capitol Hill reporter Abigail Robertson is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown. She says the upcoming testimonies are crucial, as many Senators want the full story before making a decision about confirming Kavanaugh.
Now a tropical depression, the remnants of Hurricane Florence are still lashing the Carolinas. In some areas, the worst is actually still to come.

On today's CBN News Daily Rundown she shares stories of residents who are helplessly watching rivers rise and preparing as best as they can for when they overflow.

The outer bands of Hurricane Florence are now lashing the Carolina coast with wind and rain. Early this morning the storm did decrease in size from a category four to a category two.

CBN News reporter Erik Rosales is on today's Daily Rundown, he's in North Carolina and says authorities are issuing final warnings to residents who chose not to evacuate.
