Sisters who were split up at a Chinese orphanage together again at last

Two sisters with Cerebral Palsy who were split up after one of them was adopted from a Chinese orphanage and the other was left behind have been reunited after almost four years in Kentucky. Aubrey (right of middle, and bottom right) and Avery (left of middle, and top right) were living in the same Chinese orphanage but did not know they were related, before the former was adopted by Lisa Lumpkins (inset, and left with her family) and her family from Georgetown, Kentucky in 2013. Lumpkins discovered the link after seeing a picture of Avery on Facebook earlier this year. Since then, she had a DNA test done to confirm what she thought, and then worked to get Avery to the U.S. Had they not completed the adoption by August, the young girl would become ineligible in China and be forced to stay there her entire life.

Beaches closed and flights threatened as 30million people prepare for Hermine

As Hermine pushed through South Carolina with strong winds and heavy rains on Friday, it could strengthen back into a hurricane as it moves into the Atlantic coast over the Labor Day weekend (projected path shown bottom right), forecasters said. From Florida to New York, more than 30 million people were under tropical storm watches and warnings as Hermine weakened to a tropical storm while moving northeast, bringing the potential for drenching rain and devastating flooding (map of its projected path bottom right).

Group of Vietnamese teachers are lifted over a river by an EXCAVATOR

Teachers in the remote Yen Bai province in northern Vietnam were stranded when floods washed out roads between the villages and the school. So big-hearted construction workers brought in a giant digger and ran a makeshift ferry service taking teachers across the flood in its giant scoop. Headmaster Duong Xuan Truong - from the Nam Muoi Ethnic Day-boarding Junior High School - said: 'The path was closed because it had been washed away by very heavy rain.' He added: 'We didn't know how the teaching staff would get there until the digger arrived.'
