It’s Wednesday, June 26 – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

No. 1 - Wednesday could bring more record heat across South Florida with high temps feeling like the triple digits, but slight relief could arrive by the weekend. Keep your NBC 6 app handy for First Alert Doppler 6000 updates and push alerts.

No. 2 - The first Democratic primary debates of the 2020 presidential election are set for Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Sponsored by NBC News, MSNBC, and Telemundo, will take place at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami. The field will be split into two with 10 candidates debating each night. NBC 6 will have complete coverage starting at 4 p.m., including a special episode of NBC 6 Impact with Jackie Nespral at 7 p.m.

No. 3 - Several inmates and corrections officers at the Miami-Dade Detention Center were hospitalized after a "medical emergency" Tuesday night, fire officials said.

City of Miami Fire Rescue officials said they received a call at around 8 p.m. about four inmates experiencing symptoms of nausea and vomiting. Four inmates and three corrections officers were transported to a hospital in stable conditions, fire officials said.

No. 4 - A Chinese woman accused of "jabbing" a sea turtle nest with a wooden stake and "stomping" on the protected habitat in Miami Beach was back behind bars Tuesday after she allegedly tried to leave the country.

Yaquin Lu, 41, was arrested earlier this month on a felony charge of molesting marine turtles or eggs. Her attorney confirmed that she had tried to leave the United States but said she was unaware that she wasn't allowed to leave the country.

No. 5 - Special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify publicly before Congress on July 17 after Democrats issued subpoenas to compel him to appear, the chairmen of two House committees announced Tuesday.

Mueller's unusual back-to-back testimony in front of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees is likely to be the most highly anticipated congressional hearing in years, particularly given Mueller's resolute silence throughout his two-year investigation into Russian contacts with President Donald Trump's campaign.

No. 6 - If you buy CBD products from a store in Florida today, you have little way of knowing what you're putting in your body. CBD has not been regulated in Florida. That means the label may say the product contains CBD but the consumer has few ways to know if someone checked to be sure.

When the NBC 6 Investigators put CBD products to the test earlier this year, we found more than half of the products had less than half the amount of CBD advertised on the label or no CBD at all. For more on this story, click on this link.
