MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – From the search being called off for 12 missing Marines in Hawaii to a major snowstorm headed for the east coast, here’s a look at the top four stories to know about for Jan. 20, 2016.

Search Suspended For Missing Marines

After five days, the Coast Guard has called off its search for 12 missing Marines in Hawaii. The Coast Guard is now calling it a recovery and salvage operation.

One of those Marines is from Minnesota, Sergeant Dillon Semolina.

Two helicopters crashed off Hawaii on Friday. One person reported seeing an explosion during the nighttime training mission.

All four of their life rafts have been found, but there have been no signs of survivors.

The U.S. Marine Corps is planning a memorial service for Friday.

Ben Carson Suspends Campaign

Presidential hopeful Ben Carson has temporarily suspended his campaign after a volunteer worker was killed in a car crash.

The crash occurred in western Iowa Tuesday. The van the volunteers were riding in slid on an icy road and was hit by another vehicle.

Three other campaign workers were hurt.

Carson was in South Carolina when it happened.

East Coast Braces For Winter Storm

Tens of millions of Americans in the eastern U.S.  are bracing for an end-of-the-week snowstorm.

The National Weather Service predicts some major cities could see a foot or two of snow.

Once it gets up north, people can expect strong winds, beach erosion and storm surge in the New Jersey area.

Colorful Clothes And Raises

Hoping for a pay raise or maybe a promotion in the New Year?

British workers said maybe you should brighten up your wardrobe.

A new survey of 18- to 34-year-olds in the United Kingdom shows that they credit wearing bright clothes for either securing a pay raise or landing a better position.

They said a brighter color helps them feel better about themselves and gives others the impression they are more confident or creative.
