From the CNN Centre in Atlanta, I am Nicole Lapin. It is grate to see you today. Here is a look at what is happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

 

In Concord, North Carolina, police are now looking for a gunman who apparently shot and killed two women at a soda bottling plant. Authorities are using dogs and a helicopter to search this area. Police say that the suspect was seen running away from the scene and witnesses say he was actually wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and has long dreadlocks, but they do not know much else. Now the shooting did happen at Sun-drop Bottling Company.

 

Thousands upon thousands of people are evacuating homes, businesses and even a hospital. A severe flooding continues right now. In Iowa, officials are calling for a lot of people to voluntarily leave Des Moines by 6pm today. And Cedar Rapids officials say that there are hundreds of blocks in that city are simply flooded like this. Meantime, two death in other Midwest states are being blamed on the floods as well. One person in Minnesota and another in Michigan were killed when they were submerged in their cars.

 

Also another sign of relief at NASA twice. NASA engineers say debris spotted floating away from the shuttle Discovery has preliminarily been identified as a thermal clip from the brake system. It was spotted after a thruster was tested fire. An official say that the 12-18-inch object is one of the three clips that the project is all part of the essentials to protect the shuttles rather cause the speed break, during the launch and ascent. They say the loss of it would not actually pose a risk during reentry and landing. Meantime, NASA says a bomb seen running along the edge of the shuttle's rudder was just a trick of lighting.

 

Salmonella outbreak In tomatoes is growing. The federal government now says now the 23 states have reported 228 cases still no word on the source of the bacteria, and health official simply are not sure if the tainted tomatoes are off the market at all. Albeit, FDA is saying tomatoes in Florida and in California have been clear safe to eat.

 

Another day, another record for gas prices. AAA is now saying the price per gallon of self-serve regular rose to just over $4.06 a gallon. Now 27 states and the District of Columbia, Washington DC of course are now paying more than 4 bucks a gallon for regular gas.

 

Those are the headlines at this hour. For more on those stories and the other news of the day, CNN is always your source online, on TV or on your cell phone.
