Hello everyone. Welcome to Sign1News live. I’m Crystal Cousineau. Here are your top stories for today. Earlier this week, six named storms were confirmed
in the Atlantic Ocean in the eastern Pacific or over the United States. Hurricane Humberto is moving toward Bermuda
as a category three storm. Tropical depression Imelda flooded parts of
Texas. Tropical storm Jerry has since become a hurricane
that might affect the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla over the weekend. Kiko was a hurricane and may return to that
status over the weekend. Tropical storm Lorena may reach the Baja California
peninsula on Saturday. And finally the tropical storm named Mario
was located in the Pacific by the Mexico coast. An employee with the National Hurricane Center
tweeted “They are forming like roaches out there!” A second person in Massachusetts has died
from eastern equine encephalitis or EEE. The patient was a man in his 70s. It is the 10th confirmed case of triple-E
in the state. Three people in Michigan and one in Rhode
Island have also died from the virus, bringing the total number of deaths nationwide to six. EEE is transmitted by mosquitoes and health
officials are warning people to take steps to avoid being bitten. That would include using bug spray, keeping
skin covered and staying indoors once the sun starts to go down and at dawn. That’s when mosquitoes are most active. There is a big battle in Washington, DC right
now with President Trump and the White House pitted against Congress. And it’s all over a whistleblower complaint
by an unnamed member of the intelligence community. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that
Trump urged Ukraine’s president to investigate Joe Biden’s son multiple times. Sources tell the Journal Trump made the request
about eight times on a July phone call and told Ukraine’s to work with his personal lawyer
Rudy Giuliani. The White House is blocking the release of
the whistleblower complaint Congress, with Trump insisting there’s nothing to see. He says the whistleblowing is just “another
political hack job.” However the Inspector General of the US intelligence
community is sounding an alarm. At a briefing with house lawmakers, the Inspector
General, who indicated the whistleblower is male, said he disagreed with the administration’s
decision to withhold the information. And Democrats are worried that if the matter
ends up in court, the complaint will never be made public. There is so much to love about fall: football,
mild weather, the glorious change in the leaves on trees. But millions of people with fall allergies
suffer this time of year. Health experts say relief is out there and
there are steps you can take that can help, including buying a HEPA air filter, using
a saline nasal spray, avoiding raking or bagging leaves or using a mask. But if you have to work outdoors or spend
a significant amount of time outdoors, it’s best to do it later in the day. Health experts say these tips may help with
mild symptoms but see a board-certified allergist if symptoms are more severe. We all want to look our best, but beauty experts
say there are five bad habits you may be doing that can make you appear older. The first thing you should do to prevent aging
is sleep on your back. Experts say sleeping on your stomach or on
your side can cause a pulling of your skin over time that form wrinkles prematurely. Nighttime is also the right time to nurture
your eyes. Part of that includes putting down the cell
phone so your eyes aren’t strained further and moisturizing under your eyes with a good
eye cream, which is the thinnest skin on your body. And if you enjoy a super hot shower or bath,
stop it! Doctors say hot water depletes your skin of
its moisture so when you’re taking baths and showers, make sure the water is lukewarm. And stress will age you more than anything
so find ways to lessen stress before bed. Which brings up the last tip: get a good night’s
sleep! Doctors say when you don’t get enough sleep,
it will show up on your face in the form of under eye circles, swelling and bags. If you drive a Chevrolet Trax SUV, listen
up. General Motors says an earlier recall will
be expanded. The original recall covers the 2017 to 2019
models. Now the recall has expanded to include 2015
and 2016 models. GM says a problem with the suspension weld
could cause steering problems, leading to a crash. GM dealers will be able to inspect the vehicle
and decide if a replacement is needed. To find out if your SUV is involved in the
recall, go to the website for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, www.NHTSA.gov. Every year on the third Saturday of September,
people all over the world celebrate Batman Day. At 8 PM local time, the infamous bat signal
will light up the sky above thirteen cities around the world. In the United States, the signal will flash
in New York at the Domino Sugar Refinery and in Los Angeles at City Hall. The Dark Knight’s familiar shape will also
be seen in Melbourne, Tokyo, Johannesburg, Berlin, Rome, Paris, Barcelona, London, Sao
Paulo, Montreal and Mexico City. Since our studios are in Atlanta, we won’t
be able to see it. But if any of our loyal Sign1News fans are
