Exclusive: Confusion clouds count of cars hit by Takata air bag recall

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 06/11/2015 - 05:29

A flag with the Takata logo flies alongside an American flag outside the Takata Corporation in Auburn HillsThe number of vehicles on U.S. roads with potentially defective Takata air bags appears to be less than half the 34 million initially estimated by federal regulators, according to a Reuters analysis of recall records submitted to the watchdog and confirmed by the car companies. About 16.2 million vehicles — roughly one out of every 16 cars on U.S. highways — may have one or two defective air bags supplied by Japan’s Takata Corp , vehicle manufacturers confirmed to Reuters. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Wednesday said it has not counted the absolute number of vehicles, but said it was aware of 30 million potentially defective Takata parts that need to be replaced.

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 06/11/2015 - 05:28

Flood waters from the Red River engulf houses in the River Bluff subdivision in Bossier City(Reuters) - A surging Red River that flooded northwest Louisiana this week, damaging hundreds of structures and displacing scores of people, slowly began to recede on Wednesday but was still expected to be above flood stage for several more days. In Bossier and Caddo Parishes, the water turned fields into lakes, shut roads, flooded dozens of homes and led Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to dispatch the National Guard to help. "We have people still sand-bagging and trying to protect their homes," said Lieutenant Bill Davis, a spokesman for the Bossier Sheriff's Office.

Correction: Waco Shooting story

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 06/11/2015 - 05:27

FILE - In this May 17, 2015 file photo, authorities investigate a shooting in the parking lot of the Twin Peaks restaurant, in Waco, Texas. Six witnesses say they heard a few pistol shots before automatic fire took over during a shootout last month at a Waco Twin Peaks restaurant. Police have acknowledged firing on armed bikers, but say they cannot address how many of the nine dead and 18 wounded were shot by bikers and how many were shot by officers. (AP Photo/Jerry Larson, File)WACO, Texas (AP) — In a story June 6 about a shootout involving bikers in Waco, The Associated Press reported erroneously that witnesses said the sound of semi-automatic gunfire dominated the shootout. They said the shootout was dominated by what sounded like short bursts of automatic gunfire. The AP also erroneously reported that a semi-automatic weapon can shoot more bullets in less time than a small-caliber weapon. The story should have said that an automatic weapon can fire multiple rounds more quickly than a semi-automatic weapon.
