Hope for furloughed employees; 48 Investigates home protection apps; Cyclist safety

Good Thursday evening to you!

Help could be on the way for thousands of local workers who have been furloughed. The House passed legislation that would end furloughs for some civilian defense workers. It's a story we told you about last night at 10. Tonight, what Arsenal employees have to say: Is it the glimmer of hope they've been waiting for? Shumuriel Ratliff talks to one employee tonight.

Some homeowners choose to invest in elaborate security systems for their homes.  But there are some simple and inexpensive ways to add an extra layer of security to your home, like an app that turns your smartphone into a live action camera. It's a WAFF 48 News Investigation that every homeowner will want to see.

And: cyclists and motorists coexisting on area roadways. That is the thought behind a new initiative in Huntsville. The See and Be Seen Campaigned kicked off this week. Coming up tonight at 10, we'll tell you how organizers of the campaign hope to make Huntsville a safer place for those behind two- and four-wheeled vehicles.

Join us tonight for WAFF 48 News at 10.

I'll see you then!
