This is morningside news, I’m Jennifer Noel.  Hurricane Sandy has given the East Coast quite a shock. Here is (name) with the story.


Fierce floods and 80 mile per hour winds, hit the East Coast on Monday. Even though it was weakened, Hurricane Sandy still gave New Jersey a punch. By Tuesday, the rainfall was slowing and the storm was now a post-tropical cyclone. As a result, from the storm at least 16 people across the East Coast are dead.


Atlantic City and Lower Manhattan are just a few places the storm has caused damage. The streets were flooded into rivers 13 feet deep. Much of Manhattan’s skyline power faded. At the end of Tuesday, still most places were unsafe to travel and interstates were reduced to 45 miles per hour.



Recently Siouxlanders came together for the annual event, Pink in the Rink.  (Name) has more on the event.



Sioux City’s Pink in the Rink was a big success for Breast Cancer Awareness. On Saturday, the Sioux City Musketeers wore pink for the fifth year in a row. The event rose up to forty seven thousand dollars for St Lukes’ imaging and breast screening center.


Over thirty-eight hundred people showed up at the Tyson Event Center for the event. Each ticket generated three dollars towards the cause. To keep the support going, t-shirts and pink ducks were sold at the game as well.


ME: This year’s election has brought up strong feelings for student voters. Sioux City students had a chance to vote early and many for the first time. Here is (name) with more to the story.


Early voting came even quicker for college students in Sioux City. Students came from every secondary school to cast their vote. Emily, a student from Morningside, who voted, thought there was a lot of pressure this campaign to be apart of the election. Emily says,

Many students were voting for the first time. Most felt like it is an important event that students and young adults need to participate in. Jamison, a first time voter from morningside says, “blah blah blah.”
