Weather wise, the wet conditions from the past few ways give way to comfortable and even cooler weather through the start of the weekend with low temps in the upper 50s.

No. 1 - Police have arrested and charged a man they say is responsible for drawing hateful images across Miami Beach.

Officers arrested 45-year-old Sean Kenna and charged him with seven counts of criminal mischief, six of them associated with drawing swastikas in various locations throughout the city as well as allegedly writing hateful messages directed at the Jewish community.

No. 2 - Authorities are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck a 4-year-old boy in Lauderdale Lakes and fled after bringing the child to the hospital.

No. 3 - Electric scooters have been banned in Hollywood. City commissioners voted Wednesday to prohibit the scooters from any street, roadway or sidewalk within city limits. The law also prohibits the sale, rental and leasing of the devices.

No. 4 - New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced an immediate ban Thursday on sales of "military-style" semi-automatic firearms and high-capacity magazines in the wake of a terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch that killed 50 worshippers.

Ardern said the sales ban was effective immediately to prevent stockpiling and would be followed by a complete ban on the weapons after new laws were rushed through.

No. 5 - The former operator of a Florida spa named in a prostitution investigation is speaking out for the first time to rebut reports that she sold access to President Donald Trump.

In an interview with NBC News, Li "Cindy" Yang said she believes she's facing allegations of being a Chinese agent solely because of her ethnicity and political leanings.
