Industrial output posts rebound in October


WASHINGTON (AP) -- Industrial output posted a bigger-than-expected rebound in October after plunging in September by the largest amount in over 60 years.

  The Federal Reserve says industrial output rose 1.3 percent last month, reflecting a return to more normal operations following hurricanes and a strike at aircraft manufacturer Boeing Co. the previous month.

  Those disruptions along with the weak economy caused industrial production to fall by 3.7 percent in September, the biggest one-month drop since a 5 percent plunge in February 1946.
