Five Things to Know for Your New Day -- Monday, February 9
It's Monday and here are the 5 things to know for your New Day
Snow, snow, snow: Sometimes you just can't catch a break. Boston and large chucks of the Northeast are getting hammered again. Snow accumulations of 12 to 16 inches will be common across central and northeast Massachusetts. Some places could get up to 2 feet of the white stuff. Schools are closed today and tomorrow. Boston has already set a record for the snowiest seven-day period in history, with over 40 inches. The city is way past its annual snowfall average of 47 inches.
Tightening the screws: European Union foreign ministers are meeting in Brussels, Belgium, today to decide whether to expand Russian sanctions. In Washington, President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are meeting too. Later this week, the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France may meet face-to-face on the conflict in Belarus. The German government told CNN that "all sides have agreed" to the meeting, but Russian President Vladimir Putin hinted that a meeting might not be a done deal. An earlier meeting fell through. More than 5,000 people have died in the fighting.
Music's night: Sam Smith owned the Grammys last night. The British soul sensation snagged four awards, including best new artist, and record and song of the year for "Stay with Me." Smith was very quotable. First, understatement of the evening: "I'm having a really, really, really good night." And a tribute to a former lover who helped inspire the songs on his album "In the Lonely Hour." "Thanks so much for breaking my heart, because you got me four Grammys," he said. Beck pulled off the big upset of the night, besting Smith to win album of the year for "Morning Phase."
Vehicular manslaughter case: Bruce Jenner says he's cooperating with California authorities after a fatal car crash he was involved in over the weekend. He called it a "devastating tragedy." The accident took place along a tricky stretch of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. A Cadillac SUV Jenner was driving was the third vehicle in a multiple rear-end collision. It hit a Lexus that was spun into oncoming traffic and hit by a Hummer. The driver of the Lexus died. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department has opened up a vehicular manslaughter investigation.
Football violence: Egypt suspended the country's Premier League soccer matches after clashes between police and fans left at least 19 and up to 30 people dead yesterday. The Interior Ministry blamed the violence on fans who didn't have tickets and tried to push their way in. It's the deadliest soccer-related violence in Egypt since a 2012 stampede. That incident left more than 70 people dead and 1,000 injured.
