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

1. Spring begins as Midwest and Northeast dig out

Even though spring starts this morning at 7:02 EDT, most of the Midwest and northeast is still digging out of a foot to a foot and a half of snow, and the cold weather could last into April. For parts of the Midwest, this will be the coldest first day of spring since 1965.

2. Suspected hacking investigated in South Korea

Police in South Korea are investigating reported computer network outages of several broadcasters and banks. Early reports indicate that some suspect the outages could be part of a hacking attack on the country.

3. Ammunition delivered to Florida shooter

Authorities announced at a press conference at the University of Central Florida that two packages addressed to the would-be UCF shooter were found in a dorm mailroom on Tuesday. Inside, police found two 22-round magazines, a sling for the weapon and a DVD on how to shoot properly.

4. 19 miners rescued in Poland

Nineteen copper miners in Poland were rescued after being trapped underground for seven hours following a small earthquake. Only one suffered minor head cuts.

5. AG Jackley concerned about number of walkaway inmates

It happened again Monday night. An inmate, Travis Thorngren, walked away from the South Dakota State Penitentiary's Jameson Annex. He is serving time for a grand theft conviction out of Lincoln County. A check of our records show at least five inmates have been able to walk away from state prisons and county jails in just the last 11 weeks. We sat down with Attorney General Marty Jackley to ask him what is going on.
