President Trump and first lady to visit hurricane-ravaged areas in Florida, Georgia

Joe Raedle/Getty Images(MEXICO BEACH, Fla.) -- President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Florida Monday afternoon, where they are expected to highlight ongoing recovery efforts following Hurricane Michael as dozens still remain missing in the wake of the deadly storm.

Speaking to reporters on the tarmac at Eglin Air Force Base in Okaloosa County, the president repeatedly touted the coordination with Florida Gov. Rick Scott through last week and said the priority is ensuring displaced residents are safe and have access to food and water.

“The job they've done in Florida has been incredible, and likewise I'm hearing in Georgia pretty good things,” Trump said. “Just making sure everyone's safe, that they're fed, you know many of these people, they have no – they have no home. Some of them have no trace of a home, you wouldn't even know it just got blown right off the footing. So our big thing is feeding and water and safety.”

While the White House has not provided a detailed itinerary for the trip, the president tweeted prior to his departure saying he would be sitting "with FEMA, First Responders and Law Enforcement." The official White House schedule has the president and first lady returning at the White House in the evening.

Parents brawl during youth baseball game after disagreeing with 13-year-old umpirefstop123/iStock(LAKEWOOD, Colo.) -- A baseball game between a group of 7-year-old kids degenerated into an all-out brawl with parents throwing haymakers, other cowering for cover and a woman even jumping on someone's back.

The reason for the brawl: a parent didn't like the calls being made by a 13-year-old umpire.

The fight began at Westgate Elementary School in Lakewood, Colo., a suburb southwest of Denver, on Saturday at about noon as 15 to 20 adults got into a violent tussle, according to Lakewood police.

The brawl was still ongoing as Lakewood police arrived at the scene.

Police issued four citations for disorderly conduct, but said they are still searching for others involved in the fight.

Police are looking for an adult in a white T-shirt and teal shorts in particular because he can be seen in the video throwing sucker punches at people looking in the other direction. Police said it is unknown if this person is a parent of one of the children in the game.

There were a few minor injuries and one person suffered serious bodily injury, police told ABC News. No details on the injury were available.
