        At least 18 people have reportedly died across 8 states in the storm, flooding and lost power are Irene’s main stories.

Along the East Coast, more than 4 million have lost power and many people who are evacuated3 ahead of the storm are beginning to return home. NPR’s Larry Abramson has more.

Dominion10 Virginia Power says it would be days possibly longer before power is fully11 restored to their service area. A force fatality12 due to a falling tree has been reported. State officials are warning people not to take chances over certain themselves during a storm cleaning up. 
        Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Karen Remley.
        “If you’re not used to chopping down trees, today is not the day to learn how. It’s a bit than less somebody else coming into for real. So I think it’s today we should all kind of take a deep breath and say we’re lucky there that we’re all here and think about planning the cleanup in a thoughtful way rather than trying to jump into it.”
        One positive effect of the hurricane is that extinguished bios in the great dismount swarm13. For NPR News, I’m Craig Carper,Richmond.
        Libyan rebels appear to be solidifying14 control of Tripoli. We get more from NPR’s Jason Beaubien.
        There’re robots all over the city at the moment. It’s very hard to move around. The rebels have also been making events as they say that they’ve created much of the road entirely15 from Tripoli to west, to the Tunisia border. They’re also moving closer to Sirte, the hometown of Gaddafi where loyalists are still in control there. So, the rebels are rapidly controlling more and more of the country. It is very clear that they do completely control Tripoli.

        U.S. officials say they have killed a key al-Qaeda operator in Pakistan as NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston reports that the report’s true the group has lost its new second-in-command.
        Officials said Atiyah al-Rahman was killed last week Waziristan Pakistan in the CIA drone strike. There’re often reports about drone strikes that have killed a quart of al-Qaeda leaders. Only to have targeted the terrorists surface later run escaped. In fact, that happened last year in Rahman’s case. But this time, officials seem convinced that they got the man. Rahman is more than just al-Qaeda’s NO.2. He’s one of the headquarter fighters who fought the Soviets16 in Afghanistan alongside Osama Bin17 Laden18. He became Bin Laden’s trusted aide camp. He’s in charge of communicating to other al-Qaeda leaders and other al-Qaeda the affiliate19 groups. He was also in charge getting Bin Laden’s many audio video tapes out to the media. If it is that, officials say it’s another body blow to al-Qaeda. Dina Temple-Raston, NPR News.
        The state of California is considering legislation to ban Styrofoam food containers starting by 2015. More than 50 California cities and counties already have similar ban. Supporters of the ban say Styrofoam is not decomposable20 or biodegradable and can last thousands of years.
