Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

Here we go again! The U.S. is preparing for another storm strike. Hurricane Ophelia is gaining strength and closing in on North Carolina. Thousands of people are already without power and landfall is expected within hours. FOX News' Jamie Colby is live in Wrightsville Beach, N.C. with the latest.

Then, questioning resumes for Supreme Court nominee John Roberts (search) as day three of his confirmation hearings is underway. Roberts said that Congress has the right to counter the controversial "eminent domain" ruling and decide whether cities have the right to seize private property for commercial or public use. We'll have analysis and reaction on "The Big Story."

And, a federal judge in San Francisco declares the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional in public schools. It's the second attempt by atheist Michael Newdow to remove the pledge. He lost his first case in the U.S. Supreme Court last year. We'll get analysis from Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst, and we'll have reaction from Bill Bennett, host of "Morning in America" and a former education secretary under President Reagan.

Plus, more than 160 world leaders are gathered in New York for a three-day summit at the United Nations. One of the biggest items on their agenda is reforming the world body. But is that an impossible mission? Pedro Sanjuan, the U.N.'s former director of political affairs and author of "The U.N. Gang," says yes and joins us to tell us why!

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
