Multiple people are dead after a tornado tore through the Iowa town of Greenfield. The Iowa State Patrol says numerous fatalities have been confirmed in the town southwest of Des Moines, but that the exact number isn't expected to be released until later today. Sergeant Alex Dinkla said about a dozen other people were injured and that search efforts are ongoing.        At least two people are dead and three others are injured after a shooting at a business in Pennsylvania. It happened around 8:30 this morning local time at Delaware County Linen in Chester, south of Philadelphia. A suspect has been arrested in connection to the shooting.        Another round of student debt relief is being announced by President Biden. The Department of Education says it's forgiving seven-point-seven-billion dollars in student loans for over 160-thousand borrowers. The debt relief includes over five-billion dollars for those pursuing Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and about two-billion for students enrolled in income-driven repayment plans.        Closing arguments are set for Tuesday in former President Trump's criminal hush money trial in New York. Judge Juan Merchan said he plans on getting the final instructions to the prosecution and defense by the end of Thursday. Trump is accused of falsifying business records to cover-up an alleged sexual encounter with adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2006.       Republican Vince Fong will fill former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's seat for the rest of the term. He is the projected winner in yesterday's special election in California. Fong went up against Sheriff Mike Boudreaux, who he will once again face in November.       "Furisoa: A Mad Max Saga" is looking at taking the top spot at the box office this weekend. The fifth entry in George Miller's "Mad Max" series is expected to make between 40 and 45-million-dollars in its debut weekend. Meanwhile, the animated "The Garfield Movie" is expected to cook up between 30 and 35-million-dollars in its first weekend in theaters.
