Number five -- Oil officials in North Dakota say a pipeline spill has grown far beyond original estimations made two weeks ago. The Tesoro leak was first reported to be about 750 barrels worth, but new findings show more than 20,000 barrels have spilled.
Number four -- Investigators say nine teens disappeared in New Mexico from the Tierra Blanca Ranch Creek for troubled youth. An attorney for the ranch says the nine teenagers were out on a pre-planned camping trip and have been returned to their parents, but State Police cannot find any signs of the teens or their parents.
Number three -- The Italian Navy says more than 200 people were rescued, but at least 34 people were killed when a ship full of migrant workers and their families capsized Friday. Survivors estimate there were as many as 400 Syrians and Palestinians on the boat. It marked the second major ship disaster in the Mediterranean this month.
Number two -- Debit-style federal benefit cards for SNAP and WIC, both government food programs, stopped working in 17 states today, but it apparently was not related to the government shutdown. Turns out a computer failure is to blame, but the system is now back up and running.
Number one -- Negotiations between President Obama and Republicans on the debt ceiling and ending the government shutdown hit a brick wall. President Obama rejected the House's plan to temporarily raise the debt limit by six weeks and with this standstill, the House will not vote to reopen the government this weekend.
