It’s Thursday, November 14th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.
No. 1 – Weather wise, showers will dot the forecast for the first part of Thursday across South Florida ahead of what could be a fantastic weekend across the area. Keep your NBC 6 app handy for push alerts on any severe weather and First Alert Doppler 6000.
No. 2 - A South Florida high school student has died after being found unresponsive on a school bus.
Hollywood police say paramedics were called Wednesday morning after the unidentified student was found unresponsive at McArthur High School. Rescuers gave the student CPR, but the student later died at the hospital.
No. 3 - A search is underway for two men who were behind an early Wednesday morning robbery and kidnapping spree that spanned several cities in Broward County.
Authorities said it all began when two male victims left the Vegas Cabaret club on North University Drive in Lauderhill. When one of them was walking to his car, two masked men armed with guns approached him and robbed and kidnapped him. The suspects ordered the victim to drive to his friend's house in Sunrise. When they got to the house, the masked men robbed the other man of his money and jewelry, and then fled the scene in separate vehicle.
No. 4 - Several more witnesses scheduled to testify in the House impeachment hearings over the next week are expected to say they too worried about President Donald Trump’s push for Ukraine to investigate Democrats as the U.S. withheld military aid from the country.
The House intelligence committee, which is conducting the impeachment hearings, has set a packed schedule of open hearings over the next week.
No. 5 - 5G poles that are supposed to bring faster wireless network connection are also creating an unsightly mess on the streets of downtown Miami.
Major telecommunications companies like Verizon and AT&T are installing the utility poles every couple hundred feet in Miami to improve connection in time for the city to host the Super Bowl in February 2020. But the installation has brought growing pains and eyesores such as utility paint markings, broken sidewalks and unfinished work.
No. 6 – A dog shelter in Missouri has adopted a tiny "unicorn" puppy that has a tail growing out of his face.
The dog is named Narwhal after the type of whale that lives in Arctic waters and has a protruding tusk – and no, the tail does not wag. The dog will stay at the shelter for a least a few more weeks and possibly months in order to monitor whether any complications develop with the tail on his face.
