FIFA

Out of bounds: The Justice Department is about to deliver a body blow to soccer’s governing body. Up to 14 FIFA officials will be charged with corruption today after a three-year FBI probe, according to a federal indictment. Arrests were made overnight in Zurich, where officials had gathered for an election. FIFA President Sepp Blatter isn’t being charged, but he reportedly was investigated. We don’t yet know who will be charged. The charges spring from the FBI’s investigation into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup.

IRS

Bad breach: You’re not safe anywhere online. That’s how a lot of folks feel after the IRS said yesterday that criminals used its website to steal data on 104,000 people. The crooks got Social Security numbers, address and other sensitive personal information. Armed with that they could open bank accounts, credit lines and steal future tax refunds. That’s just lovely. The IRS promises to fix this latest security breach and offer paid credit protection for the victims.

FLOODING

Deadly deluge: The storms may have moved eastward into Louisiana and Mississippi, but Texas and Oklahoma will be dealing with the aftermath of this week’s epic rains and severe flooding for months. Thirty-one people in the U.S. and Mexico have died and many are still missing. Houston was hammered hard, with flooded roadways, stranded cars and extensive power outages. In other parts of the state, more tragic stories: a mom and her two kids are missing after their cabin was swept away, and a popular high school student died while driving home from the prom.
