coast. mexico. 100 some miles south. people are making preparations some areas and officials have three mexican states and all schools are closed. officials warn the storm's effects could be catastrophic. flooding is already affecting parts of texas. cars in abilene drove through several inches of water during across the state for most of the day. officials say dozens of people had to be rescued from their vehicles. and now as hurricane patricia moves north, flooding there in texas is expected to get worse. eric: big stories in central iowa now. polk county sheriff's deputies are investigating a shooting in connection with a road rage incident in des moines. it happened thursday afternoon at northeast 50th street. officials say two groups of people got into an argument and drove off in separate cars. the lead car fired shots at the trailing car, sending the trailing car into a ditch. luckily no one was hurt. deputies are now looking for

turing from a story last month. it made headlines when it hiked up the price of a drug used to treat a life-threatening infection from $13 dollars to $750 per pill. well, overnight we learned a competition drug company imprimis will supply that same drug for just $1 per pill to make the pills more widely available. turing ceo martin shkreli recently promised to lower the price but that has not happened yet. and right now, federal regulators are urging drivers to get your cars fixed immediately if it's part of the recent takata airbag recall. the faulty airbags are responsible for eight deaths and nearly 100 injuries so far. 19.2 million vehicles from 12 manufacturers are affected and the officials say less than a quarter of those recalled have been fixed nationwide. drivers are encouraged to go to to see if their vehicle is listed and make an immediate appointment for a free repair. elizabeth: more economic headlines now.
