Happening in the World: Russia is pulling its military out of the Ukrainian city of Kherson after General Sergei Surovikin, Moscow’s commander in Ukraine, announced that it was no longer possible to continue supplying the area. Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and other officials are cautious about this move, and can neither confirm nor deny its validity. It is estimated that around 200,000 people have been killed since the war began. (BBC)

Happening in the US: A rare November hurricane formed near the coast of Florida this week. Originally a storm, Hurricane Nicole formed as it made landfall in the Bahamas, causing extensive damage and displacing hundreds of residents. Several Florida counties have been ordered to evacuate. Hurricane Nicole is one of three hurricanes in history to make landfall during November. Although it is only a Category 1, many communities are still left vulnerable after the destruction caused by Hurricane Ian. (AP)

Happening in NYC: New data shows that nearly six thousand migrant students have enrolled in schools across NYC since July. Schools near emergency shelters and in Spanish-speaking areas saw the highest increases. As the Department of Education does not track students’ immigration status, the data comes from Mayor Adams’ Project Open Arms, which aims to connect asylum-seekers with city services. Educators, emergency centers, and other services are working to expand their services to keep up with the influx of families. (The Gothamist)
