Good morning. I am Melissa Long, here at the CNN center in Atlanta, on this Thursday morning, the 12th of November. Here is a look at some of the stories happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

The number of Americans who have died from swine flu may be four times higher than we thought. The New York Times says the CDC is estimating H1N1 may have killed 4,000 people in the US since April. The virus is getting more dangerous but the CDC is now counting lab confirmed cases and deaths from complications1 related to H1N1.

Heavy rain from what’s left of the tropical storm--Ida is now battering2 the mid3 Atlantic. Virginia’s government declared a state of emergency and there are coastal4 flood warnings in some areas. The storm has moved out of Georgia but now performed flooding several neighborhoods. Some were still recovering from mass of flooding back in September.

Mike Gerard Tyson is in trouble. The former box champ was arrested last night after a scuffle at the LA International Airport. Police say he punched a paparazzi (pl.) paparazzo in the head, sending him into the floor. The photographer went to the hospital with a cut on his forehead. Both men have been charged with misdemeanor battery.

And if you are looking for a bargain penthouse in New York City, Bernie Madoff's old apartment, still on the market. Can you afford it? 8.9 million dollars, but that is a million less than the original asking price. His place in Palm Beach Florida has also been cut; it can be yours for 7.9 million dollars.

Those are headlines for you this hour. Do stay with us here at CNN.com and for more on these stories or other news that develops today.
