2 missing after flooding
Two people were missing after heavy rains inundated the northeast and led to severe flooding in some areas, officials said Saturday. A woman in upstate New York’s Mohawk Valley is unaccounted for after her mobile home was washed away by rising waters Friday in Fort Plain, police Chief Robert Thomas said. In Pennsylvania, officials said an 86-year-old Clinton County man was swept into a rain-swollen creek Thursday while trying to retrieve an ATV.
Search crews spot body
Authorities searching for a climber who has been missing on Mount Hood since last weekend said Saturday that they have spotted a body near the top of a glacier. Oregon Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter crews made the discovery at an altitude of about 8,400 feet, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said. The sheriff’s office said officials believe there’s a high probability that the body belongs to Kinley Adams, 59, a dentist who failed to return June 22 from a climb on the west side of Oregon’s tallest mountain.

Facebook alters ad policy
Facebook is pulling ads from pages that contain violence or sexual content. The social network said that on Monday, it will expand its definition of pages and groups that are too controversial to carry ads. In May, Facebook Inc. lost more than a dozen advertisers, at least temporarily, after the activist group Women, Action and the Media urged an advertising boycott to protest hate speech on the site. The controversial content included grisly photos and mottos that encouraged rape, abuse and other violence against women.
