5 things you need to know this morning: Sept. 13, 2018

Start your day off right with five things you need to know this morning.

Five things you need to know

1. Multiple people dead after California shooting

A man in Bakersfield killed five people in a Wednesday night shooting before he turned the gun on himself. It appears to be a domestic dispute of sorts, as the sheriff’s office says a husband and wife showed up to a trucking business and confronted a man. The husband shot and killed the man before doing the same to his wife and three others.


2. Hurricane Florence about to make landfall as a category 2 storm

The good news is that Hurricane Florence has been downgraded to a category two storm as it nears the southeast coast of the United States. The bad news is that it’s still a very large, strong and deadly storm that will cause billions in damage and surely claim some lives in its path. One of the biggest concerns is the storm surge, which could reach nine to 13 feet in some areas.


3. Mark Wahlberg’s daily schedule has people talking

Mark Wahlberg’s daily schedule has been posted to Twitter and it’s certainly got people talking. The actor wakes up at 2:30 a.m. and goes to bed at 7:30 p.m. and his day is absolutely jam packed in between those times. It’s an impressive schedule, but it’s also got people to share their hilarious schedules on Twitter, which you can see through this Twitter moment.


4. New iPhones unveiled at event in California

Today was the big day for Apple fans, as the 2018 iPhones were unveiled at the company’s annual September launch event. There will be an iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, which you can find out more about through the link below. Apple will also be discontinuing the iPhone X, iPhone 6s and the iPhone SE, which means the headphone jack is officially dead.


5. Pod of beluga whales adopt lost narwhal

Nature is absolutely adorable and heartwarming sometimes. A narwhal, who is more than 1,000 kilometres south of its normal range, appears to have been adopted by a group of beluga whales. The horned animal has been observed with the pod of whales for nearly three years in the St. Lawrence River.
