No. 3 – Only on 6, a pair of thieves were caught on surveillance yanking an ATM off the wall of an Allapattah restaurant.

The break-in happened Wednesday morning in the 3100 block of Northwest 27th Avenue. Surveillance video shows the two men dragging the ATM out of the restaurant as well as going through drawers and cabinets. The owner said nearly $3,000 worth of cash and items were stolen, including $1,000 worth of beer.

No. 4 - A day after bringing havoc to the Rocky Mountains, a powerful winter storm rolled across the Midwest on Wednesday, threatening to scramble Thanksgiving plans for millions of people during one of the busiest travel weeks of the year.

The storm, which was blamed for one death and hundreds of canceled flights, pushed east into South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. It dropped close to a foot of snow in some areas even as the system weakened and headed toward New York and Pennsylvania.

No. 5 - In New York, the windy forecast could mean disappointment for fans of the larger-than-life balloons flown at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Organizers prepared for the possibility of grounding the iconic balloon characters because of expected 40 to 50 mph gusts. You can watch the parade at 9 a.m. on NBC 6.

No. 6 - Zoo Miami has a terrific giraffe exhibit which allows visitors to feed the graceful animals. The experience is even better if Ron Magill happens to be there, giving kids an impromptu lesson in giraffe anatomy.

Magill has traveled the world on wildlife expeditions, from Alaska to Africa to Antarctica to the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands and India and more. In four decades, Magill has seen a metamorphosis at the zoo. To hear his interview with NBC 6’s Ari Odzer, click on this link.
