Here is the latest news from The Associated Press at 11:40 p.m. EDT

ATLANTA (AP) — Hurricane Florence continues to grow in size and magnitude as it barrels toward the U.S. East Coast. The National Hurricane Center said Monday the monster storm will be close to Category 5 strength by Tuesday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Americans are commemorating the Sept. 11 terror attacks with somber tributes, volunteer projects and a new monument to victims. Thousands of victims’ relatives, survivors, rescuers and others are expected at Tuesday’s ceremony at the World Trade Center. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump plan to join an observance at the 9/11 memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where there is a new tower honoring victims. Vice President Mike Pence is attending a ceremony at the Pentagon.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. has decided to close the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s office in Washington, but the Palestinian Authority says it will not abandon its principles. The spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Nabil Abu Rdeneh, says the Palestinian Authority will maintain its “commitment to the resolutions of international legitimacy,” according to a written statement released Monday.

NEW YORK (AP) — CBS says it sets aside $120 million in severance for ousted chief executive Leslie Moonves. But whether he sees a penny of it is one of the tough and potentially incendiary decisions the network faces after his resignation over sexual misconduct accusations. Outside lawyers are investigating the allegations against Moonves, and CBS says it will release the severance money if it is found there was no cause for him to be fired. That is likely to anger the #MeToo movement.

DALLAS (AP) — Attorneys for the family of a black man shot dead by a white Dallas police officer in the man’s own home say the arrest affidavit contradicts neighbors’ accounts. One of the lawyers, Benjamin Crump, says the affidavit “is very self-serving.” The affidavit prepared by a Texas Ranger was released Monday and appeared to be based almost entirely on Officer Amber Guyger’s account of the shooting of 26-year-old Botham Jean.
