It’s Thursday, June 27th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

Weather wise, it’s going to be another hot day across South Florida but temperatures are expected to cool down – slightly – in time for the weekend with highs in the upper 80s.

No. 1 - The Democratic contest to beat Trump next year ramped up on Wednesday with the first of two debates among the large field of candidates.

Ten candidates took the stage in Miami, and another 10 will Thursday night in match-ups hosted by NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo.

No. 2 - White House hopefuls in Miami for the Democratic debates are trekking to nearby Homestead to visit a large migrant detention facility.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren visited the site Wednesday, with Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar making a stop later in the afternoon. Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke is scheduled to visit the site on Thursday.

No. 3 - Ramp workers in charge of both loading and unloading luggage on two of the largest airlines operating out of Miami International Airport plan on striking Thursday in an effort to urge their employer to improve working conditions.

Workers for Eulen, the group in charge of plans for both American Airlines and Delta Airlines, are protesting what they call unbearable conditions at the airport.

No. 4 - President Trump is in Japan today for the G-20 summit, a chance for leaders from the world's largest economies to talk about economic and geopolitical issues.

While on the way aboard Air Force One, he reacted to the Democratic debate on Twitter by calling it "boring."

No. 5 - City commissioners are holding a meeting to bring Ultra Music Festival back to downtown Miami.

The three-day event moved to Virginia Key this year after the city kicked the festival out of its longtime home at Bayfront Park. Three out of five commissioners would have to approve the move.

No. 6 - A woman thought she was covered - but when a family heirloom was damaged while being shipped and the delivery company didn’t reimburse her for the repair cost, she called NBC 6 Responds.
