Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Nov. 16. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Boston-based Moderna announced Monday that preliminary data from its coronavirus vaccine trials show 94.5 percent efficacy. We learn a little more about this glimmer of vaccine hope from WBUR's Angus Chen.
  • Despite the rise in cases, some families are planning to travel this holiday season. So, what's the safest way to do that? We ask Dr. Mark Siedner, a clinical epidemiologist at MGH, and hear from Anne Lischwe, with AAA Northeast. 
  • There was flooding in Boston on Monday due to a king tide, which is an extra high tide. The floods didn't come as a surprise to Christopher Cook, Boston's environment chief, who we speak with about the city's climate resiliency plans.
  • After a big upset win last night, are the Patriots actually poised to save their season? We Check the Score with Radio Boston's Chris Citorik.
