5 things to know this morning

Posted: Updated:

Your look at the five biggest and most buzz-worthy stories of the morning.

1. Nor'easter following in Sandy's path

The National Weather Service says an offshore storm with wind gusts up to 55 miles per hour is in the forecast for the New York metropolitan area and the New Jersey coastline. Meteorologists say the storm looks like a classic nor'easter and though it will not be nearly as strong as Superstorm Sandy, it could compound damage to already devastated areas.

2. NYC polling sites moved after Sandy

Only 59 of the 1,256 polling locations in New York City need to be moved or closed following Superstorm Sandy, according to a spokeswoman for the city's Board of Elections. Mayor Bloomberg said that changes to polling locations would affect about 143,000 New Yorkers.

3. Child mauled by dogs at Pittsburgh Zoo

A 2-year-old toddler was killed by a pack of African painted dogs when he fell into the exhibit at the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium on Sunday. The staff scrambled to save the boy but were unable to rescue the child in time, forcing the zoo to shut down for the remainder of the day.

4. What to expect on the South Dakota ballot

On Tuesday you'll be asked to cast your vote on four constitutional amendments, one initiated measure, and two referred laws. Monday morning we are taking a look at what a "yes" or "no" vote means on these issues.

5. Feeding South Dakota collecting food for Thanksgiving dinners

All this week, you can give to the Feeding South Dakota 2nd Annual Turkey Drive. It starts Monday and goes until Friday. Everything donated will go towards supplying Thanksgiving meals to needy families across South Dakota.
