CNN Student News is excited to be kicking off a new academic year! Our daily current events coverage starts with a report on extreme flooding in Louisiana and an explanation of the difference between a flood and a flash flood. We're taking a look at how one U.S. Olympian's accomplishments have had a national impact on his sport, and we're featuring a Character Study on how one Australian man's drive to assist others is bringing them more than clean clothes.
On this page you will find today's show Transcript and a place for you to request to be on the CNN Student News Roll Call.
Please note that there may be a delay between the time when the video is available and when the transcript is published.
