First Drip (10/15/13): food banks receive help, shutdown deal near, LAX dry ice bombs, more



Due to unusually high demand brought on by the partial government shutdown Gov. McCrory announced Monday that the state would split $750,000 between food banks over the next few weeks. But, as WFAE points out, food banks were struggling before the shutdown, in part because of decisions made at the state level.

Senate leaders say they are close to a deal that would end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling. House Republicans outlined their response to the deal on Tuesday.

Four dry ice bombs went off at LAX yesterday; officials say terrorism wasn't to blame.

New York City is trying to stop a website that lets tourists rent apartments.
