    Weather wise, a passing shower is in the forecast for parts of the area as the humidity sticks around with high temps in the mid-80s.

    No. 1 – 12 people, include a veteran sheriff’s department sergeant, were killed when a gunman opened fire inside a bar during college night in Southern California. The gunman, who has not been identified, was also found dead.

    No. 2 – A bus full of children crashed with a pickup truck in Fort Lauderdale. At least one child and one adult are in serious condition.

    No. 3 – Florida's agriculture commissioner race could also be going to a recount. Republican Matt Caldwell declared victory, but the latest numbers show him leading Democrat Nikki Fried by less than 13, 000 votes, which qualifies the race for an automatic recount.

    No. 4 – Senator Bill Nelson is asking for a recount in his re-election bid. There are 30,000 votes separating both Nelson and Gov. Rick Scott, who has already claimed victory despite state officials not yet calling the race.

    No. 5 – Jeff Sessions is no longer the US Attorney General. After two years on the job, Sessions resigned at the request of the President. Matthew Whitaker will be the acting attorney general for now.

    No. 6 – Power is now fully restored to all the Florida counties affected by Hurricane Michael. More than 380,000 homes and businesses lost power after the Category 4 storm made landfall last month.
