It’s Thursday, October 31st – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.
No. 1 – Weather wise, we aren't trying to "trick” you, but your forecast for Halloween is going to be quite a "treat" if you like warm temperatures and no wet weather by the evening. Keep your NBC 6 app handy for First Alert Doppler 6000 and push alerts on any severe weather.
No. 2 - A woman's body was found Wednesday inside of a Miami Beach apartment where an armed barricaded man surrendered to police.
Officers responded before 8 p.m. to a man armed with a knife in the 7400 block of Carlyle Avenue, Miami Beach police said. A woman called 911 after she tried to check on her friend at the location, police said. When she got to the apartment, she encountered a hostile man who shut the door and wouldn't let her inside.
No. 3 - A man was arrested in Deerfield Beach after authorities said he was trying to lure underage girls into his car with money. Roberto Noel, 37, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of interfering with the custody of a minor, Broward County jail records showed.
Investigators said Noel, who lives in Pompano Beach, was driving around offering girls $500 to get into his car. A probable cause affidavit suggested it wasn't the first time he'd tried to lure minors, but prosecutors said Noel doesn't have a criminal history.
No. 4 - Democrats have set the stage for certain House approval of the ground rules lawmakers will use when they consider impeaching President Donald Trump as the chamber braced for its first showdown over the inquiry.
There was no doubt that the Democratic-controlled body would approve the eight pages of procedures on Thursday, with each side likely to lose a handful of defectors, if any.
No. 5 - Santa Ana winds were expected to linger for a final day Thursday after driving more than a dozen wildfires through California, sending thousands fleeing and burning nearly up to the walls of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
Firefighters managed to tamp down or at least partially corral fires that for the past few days surged through tinder-dry brush in both the north and south, destroying dozens of homes.
No. 6 - A project to install impact windows expected to be completed before hurricane season lagged on much longer – that’s when Doris Haber called NBC 6 Responds when her newly installed impact windows started to leak.
