Farmers race to protect crops from cold temps - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

Farmers race to protect crops from cold temps

Good Tuesday evening. Here are just a few of the stories we're following here in the WAFF 48 Newsroom.

The possibility of a late-season freeze overnight has Tennessee Valley farmers scrambling to save crops like strawberries, tomatoes and peaches. We'll hear from a local peach farmer to see how he and his staff plan to use an irrigation system to protect their product and their livelihood.

We're also digging deeper into a deputy-involved shooting that took place at a Walmart Supercenter in south Huntsville this afternoon. An off-duty Morgan County Sheriff's deputy tried to take a suspected felon he recognized into custody. In the process, the deputy's gun went off, striking the suspect in the buttocks and sending him to the hospital. Huntsville police are investigating. WAFF 48 News reporter Vincent Crivelli will have the latest in this investigation.

And on this the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, we'll hear from a Tennessee Valley resident who was going to school in Boston when the bombing occurred. He'll recount his memories of those frightening moments immediately after the two bombs went off just a few blocks away from where he was living.

We hope you'll join us for these stories and much more at 10.
