    The presidential nominees sparred for 99 minutes in their first presidential debate held at Hofstra University Monday night.

    Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton tackled the economy, ISIS, taxes and the president's birth status. They also took jabs at one another, and plenty of them.

    "I have a feeling by the end of this debate I'm going to be blamed for everything that's ever happened," Clinton joked.

    Clinton noted that cyber security attacks were a concern, and the United States should be wary of Russia, and noted that "Donald is very praiseworthy of Vladimir Putin." 

    Trump said he'd release his tax returns once Clinton provided the 33,000 emails she deleted, and that his temperment was his best asset. 

    "She doesn't have the stamina... I don't believe Hillary has the stamina" to be president, Trump said. 

    The top three issues posted to Facebook by 18- to 34 year-olds during the night were ISIS, racism and discrimination and crime and criminal justice, according to Facebook. 

    #TrumpSniffles began showing up on Twitter timelines in response to Trump appearing to sniffle throughout the debate. 

    Social media users shared a breadth of reaction as Lester Holt of NBC News moderated the debate.

    Donald Trump told reporters after last night's debate that he held back from talking about former President Bill Clinton's private indiscretions because the former president's daughter Chelsea Clinton was present, NBC News reported.

    "I'm very glad that I didn't mention, because Chelsea was in the room, indiscretions by, I didn't think would be appropriate to do even though she's taken all these ads. I thought we did very well," Trump said.

    Trump's daughter Ivanka is friends with Chelsea Clinton. 

    Trump's running mate Mike Pence said on the "Today" show Tuesday morning that the Republican presidential candidate showed great restraint during the debate after an "avalanche of insults" from Clinton.

    Taliban leaders were watching last night's debate between Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from a secret location in Afghanistan, according to NBC News.

    A spokesman for the group, Zabihullah Mujahid, told NBC that they were "very interested in watching," and they had hoped Afghanistan would have been a more prominent part of the debate.

    He said that Trump is "non-serious," and said the candidate "[says] anything that comes to his tongue."

    "There nothing of interest to us in the debate as both of them said little about Afghanistan and their future plans for the country," Mujahid added.

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump squared off in the first presidential debate on Monday night. The candidates traded barbs and accusations throughout the often-tense 90 minute event at New York's Hofstra University; Clinton accused Trump of "a long record of engaging in racist behavior," referencing a justice department lawsuit accusing him of not renting apartments to African Americans. Trump mocked Clinton for her absence from the campaign trail in recent days, to which Clinton shot back that she did indeed prepare for the debate just as she has prepared to be president.

    Mandatory evacuations were ordered Tuesday morning for Santa Cruz Mountain residents living near the Loma Fire, which had charred 2,000 acres and was 5 percent contained early in the morning.

    The new evacuations include all of Croy Road, which includes the Swedish community of Sveadal near Uvas Canyon County Park and Little Uvas Road. Cal Fire officials worried the fire was headed that way. Mandatory evacuation orders were previously ordered on Monday for the Loma Prieta ridgeline area including all tributary roads along Summit Road from Soquel San Jose Road to Ormsby Fire Station. This includes Uvas Canyon County Park, Loma Chiquita, Casa Loma, Loma Prieta Way, Highland Road and Mount Bache Road.

    Cal Fire officials said Tuesday morning that two homes had burned, and 300 more remained threatened in the rugged terrain with little or no access roads.

    This kind of "extreme" fire behavior is the "new norm," according to Cal Fire Battalion Chief Mike Mathiesen. "It's fall, we're coming off a four-day heat wave."

    The Red Cross set up three evacuation centers Monday evening for those who needed food and shelter: Soquel High School, 401 Old San Jose Road in Soquel; the Jewish Community Center of Silicon Valley, 14855 Oka Road, Los Gatos; the Morgan Hill Presbyterian Church, 16970 DeWitt Ave, Morgan Hill.

    [[394876911, C]]

    The blaze is in the area of Loma Prieta and Loma Chiquita roads in Santa Clara County, west of Morgan Hill, and is spreading at a rapid rate in the southeast direction toward open space, Cal Fire said.

    Fire officials do not know the cause of the fire. They expect the blaze to burn for a few days. It started on Monday about 3 p.m. By Tuesday morning, 350 crews were battling the fire; 500 firefighters were expected by afternoon.

    Resident Fred Eggers lives on Summit Road.

    "My basic plan is to protect my property and my family," he said on Monday night. "I will be the last one to leave if we have to."

    For the latest updates on the fire, visit the Cal Fire website or a dedicated groups.io page.

    Two children who were the subjects of an Indiana statewide Amber Alert Monday afternoon were found dead later that night, Elkhart police said.

    Amber Pasztor, 29, of Fort Wayne, was charged with murder and is being held in Elkhart County Jail.

    About 5:25 p.m. an officer walking out of the Elkhart Police Department on Marion Street, was stopped by Pasztor, the children's non-custodial mother, who was driving a vehicle matching the description of the one described in the Amber Alert, police said. Pasztor told the officer there were two dead children in the backseat of the car, police said.

    [[394967151, L]]

    The statewide alert was issued for 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor. 

    The children were last seen at 6:21 a.m. ET in Fort Wayne and were believed to be "in extreme danger," police said. 

    Fort Wayne is 125 miles north of Indianapolis.

    The Pennsylvania Lottery advertises it “benefits older Pennsylvanians, every day.” But in the last decade billions of lottery dollars have been diverted an NBC 10 investigation found.

    According to the state lottery 27 cents of every dollar spent on lottery tickets goes into the state lottery fund. The rest pays prizes and lottery administration costs.

    “The point of the lottery program is to have people age at home and maintain their independence,” Renee Cunningham of Philadelphia’s Center in the Park Senior Center said.

    By law, other than prize payouts and operation expenses, the lottery fund is only supposed to be used for programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians - including prescription drug assistance, in home care, transportation, and home maintenance.

    Waiting lists for those programs are 4,000 seniors deep according to senior advocates in Harrisburg.

    “Those waiting lists could be eliminated,” Ray Landis with AARP Pennsylvania said. “Let’s have a true picture of what the lottery is paying for.”

    Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration, including Budget Secretary Randy Albright, said some lottery fund money is used to pay the state’s Medicaid bill. The NBC 10 Investigators analysis of state Medicaid recipients found one third are seniors.

    “We’re forced to rely on using some of those resources,” Secretary Albright said.

    According to state budget records, last fiscal year the Wolf administration used $309 million lottery fund dollars to pay for Medicaid’s long term medical assistance programs. However, state health care records show fewer than one percent of seniors on Medicaid receive long term care.

    “I think that right now we have no alternative,” Secretary Albright said. “We need that money to balance the budget.”

    Wolf’s staff provided documentation showing more than 45,000 resident over 60 did receive care from lottery funds. The Wolf Administration is not the first to use lottery money to balance the budget. Since 2006 at least $3.9 billion has been taken from the lottery fund for that purpose.

    An FDNY battalion chief was killed by falling debris when a suspected drug den exploded in the Bronx Tuesday, leveling a two-story home and injuring at least 12 other people.  

    Battalion Chief Michael Fahy was a 17-year FDNY veteran and father of three. A convoy of uniformed and non-uniformed firefighters stood outside the hospital to pay their respects as he body was taken to a funeral home.

    [[394954791, C]]

    "He was on the rise. He was a star," a visibly emotional FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro reporters, adding that he knew Fahy's father - a former fire chief himself - personally.

    "It's a sad day. Thankfully, this doesn't happen every day, but when it does, it doesn't make it any easier. We lost a hero today," Nigro said.

    [[394972361, C]]

    Multiple police, civilians and Con Ed workers were injured following the 7:30 a.m. blast at the private home on West 234th Street near Tibbett Avenue in Kingsbridge. About an hour before the explosion, firefighters had responded to a report of a gas smell at the location and found the drug lab, police say. 

    A law enforcement source tells NBC 4 New York officials believe the home was a marijuana growing operation. Flammable materials like propane are used to manufacture the drug, but the alleged pot growhouse would be the first such drug lab to blow up in the city, the law enforcement source said. 

    The NYPD had an ongoing investigation on that block over the last two weeks, Police Commissioner James O'Neill said.

    [[394965141, C]]

    After the FDNY found the suspected lab, it called the NYPD in to investigate but the house exploded before officers could assess the location, according to police. Correspondence on emergency radio revealed immediate concern.

    "We got men down ... with an explosion," a firefighter told a dispatcher, requesting multiple ambulances on a rush. "We got a man down ... firefighter down ... bad shape."

    Streets were shut down in the area as utility crews, firefighters and police cordoned off the site. Video from the scene shows the home completely demolished, the roof in shambles, partially collapsed over one of the building's sides. Piles of debris rained onto the street, covering the road and nearby parked cars. 

    [[394938611, C]]

    One Instagram user said the blast "shook my whole neighborhood," adding it "felt like a bomb went off." Another neighbor said her windows shook. Still another said she felt as if there had been an earthquake.  

    [[394969431, C]]

    A photo taken from the 238th Street subway platform showed a plume of smoke rising into the air. 

    [[394936001, C]]

    The DEA was assisting the NYPD in the investigation.

    It’s a girl!

    The Philadelphia Zoo announced the gender of its baby gorilla Tuesday and now they need your help naming her.

    Honi, 22, gave birth to the western lowland gorilla on Aug. 26 and now the zoo needs your help with her name. For just $1, people can choose between Amani, Isangi, Mapendo and Muyisa – the names of gorillas orphaned by poachers in the Democratic Republic of Congo by the Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education (GRACE).

    “We are thrilled to partner with Philadelphia Zoo on this naming campaign and thank them for supporting our efforts with Grauer’s gorillas in DRC,” said GRACE Executive Director Dr. Sonya Kahlenberg. “Over the past 20 years, Grauer’s gorillas have experienced a catastrophic decline of nearly 80 percent, and if nothing is done, they could be the first great ape to become extinct in the wild. The Zoo’s support will help us give orphan gorillas a second chance and will boost our work with local communities on conservation education and other programs critical for safeguarding wild gorillas and their habitat.”

    Due to poaching and habitat destruction, both Grauer and western lowland gorillas are listed a critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), said the zoo.

    Voting opened Tuesday morning and runs through Thursday at 4 p.m. Each voter must donate at least $1 to GRACE with the zoo matching all donations up to $10,000.

    “We are pleased to support and partner with GRACE,” said zoo VP for conservation and education Kim Lengel. “The long-term survival of gorillas in the wild will require the on-grounds efforts of organizations like GRACE as well as awareness, support and engagement of ‘local action/ global consequences’ on issues like climate change and deforestation-free palm oil, both of which impact gorillas in parts of their native habitat. We hope that naming Honi’s new baby after an orphaned gorilla at GRACE, and inviting our global community to select the name, will help make that connection and engage many in the efforts to save gorillas and other wildlife.”

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie knew about George Washington Bridge lane closings in Fort Lee as they were happening, longtime Christie aide David Wildstein testified publicly for the first time Tuesday.

    Pictures of Christie, Wildstein and Bill Baroni were taken the morning of Sept. 11, 2013 at the World Trade Center memorial site. It was there that Wildstein claimed he and Baroni bragged to the governor about the traffic nightmare the lane closures caused - and their refusal to answer phone calls from Democratic Mayor Mark Sokolich, who declined to endorse Christie's reelection.

    Wildstein, testifying at the criminal trial of Baroni and Christie aide Bridget Kelly, claims the governor also told his Port Authority appointees not to communicate with Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop - who also refused to endorse the governor.

    Wildstein has pleaded guilty in the scheme to tie up traffic at the bridge.

    Baroni was Wildstein's boss at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that operates the bridges, airports and other facilities including the World Trade Center. Kelly was Christie's deputy chief of staff and headed an office responsible for outreach to county and municipal officials.

    They are accused of reducing access lanes to the bridge and face fraud, conspiracy and civil rights charges. They have pleaded not guilty and have said the government has twisted federal law to turn their actions into crimes. They also have said other people with more power and influence were involved in the lane closures but aren't being prosecuted.

    Christie has denied knowing about the bridge scheme until well after it was carried out, and a taxpayer-funded report he commissioned absolved him of wrongdoing. He hasn't been charged.

    For children in war-torn Syria, Rami Adham is a welcome visitor. Since the beginning of the civil war, the Syrian native who lives in Finland has risked his life traveling to Syria more than two dozen times to deliver toys to children.

    "I was very saddened by what was going on," Adham told NBC News. "As a Syrian, I wanted of course to do my part in helping people ... so I decided to go there myself."

    According to Adham, his three-year-old daughter gave him toys before his first trip back to his homeland. From there, his charity, the Finland Syria Community Association, grew. It collects toys, sponsors orphans, and even builds schools for Syrian children.

    Even with the growth of the charity, though, Adham still carries the toys himself.

    A giant turtle being cared for at a South Jersey marine stranding center is making quite the impact.

    The Marine Mammal Stranding Center called the 280-pound female Loggerhead sea turtle that washed up Monday evening along Avalon’s 10th Street beach the largest ever cared for at the center.

    There were no signs of injury to the large reptile but it appeared to be lethargic, said the Brigantine-based center.

    Blood samples and a veterinarian exam would hopefully help shine light on what caused the turtle to become caught in the surf, said officials.

    In the meantime, MMSC kept the turtle from fellow Loggerheads at the center. Loggerheads, the most abundant sea turtle in United states waters can live 50 or more years, according to National Geographic.
