In photos: Louisiana reels from storm Delta as Southeast faces tornado and flooding threat

Former Hurricane Delta weakened to a post-tropical cyclone Saturday, but the storm remains a threat with heavy rains forecast to bring flooding and possible tornadoes for parts of the South.

The big picture: Delta made landfall near Creole, La., as a Category 2 hurricane Friday. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) warned Saturday while no deaths had been reported "everyone needs to remain vigilant" amid the threat of "hazards like flooded roads, downed power lines and displaced wildlife." Tornado watches were issued for Alabama, the Florida Panhandle, and western Georgia, where a suspected twister struck in Covington.


This is as close as I can get right now but here’s a look at a shelter that was damaged in Convington, Georgia. Those nearby say they heard the wind and saw debris flying. I know at least two people have been injured ⁦@FOX5Atlantapic.twitter.com/6xnMZWm1XE

Flashback: It got redefined in early 2015 by yours truly and Erin Griffith, in a cover story for Fortune, as any privately-held startup valued at $1 billion or more. At the time, we counted 80 of them.

It also plans to expand tests to limit the amount of political content that people see in their News Feeds to more countries outside of the U.S.

Why it matters: The changes could reduce traffic to some news publishers, particularly companies that post a lot of political content.
