On the Radar: Flooding, Roeder sentencing, Iraq

Floodwaters leave a car partially submerged Wednesday in Fall River, Massachusetts, after heavy rainfall in New England.

Rhode Island floods - A flood-weary Rhode Island surveyed the damage as waters started receding, with officials saying Thursday the long-term recovery could take months. The Northeast, particularly Rhode Island, battled flooded roads and basements for most of the week. Many of the schools in the region remained closed Thursday.

Doctor killer's sentencing - Scott Roeder, who gunned down one of the nation's few late-term abortion providers and is facing life in prison, gets an opportunity to speak at his sentencing on Thursday at 10 a.m. and we'll be carrying it live. Roeder also has asked some longtime friends to testify as character witnesses. The 52-year-old was convicted in January of first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the May 31 death of Dr. George Tiller at the doctor's church.
