Ferguson's Move Forward This Morning

Ferguson's Move Forward This Morning

Things were a little quieter in Ferguson, Missouri overnight. There were still protests, just not the violence we've seen the past few days. On WAFF 48 News Today, we'll check in with what's going on there this morning. Later today, Attorney General Eric Holder will arrive to check on the independent federal investigation surrounding the death of teenager Michael Brown.

And a grand jury will hear evidence and then decide if charges should be filed against Officer Darren Wilson.

Quite a few people have been arrested in Ferguson in the past week or so, including one person from Alabama. At 5:30 and 6:30 a.m., Lauren Morrison will take us inside the numbers.

Huntsville Hospital is donating some key emergency equipment to valley law enforcement. Muriel Bailey will show you what they're getting and just how much it's needed.

This morning's weather puts the "M" in muggy. I'm not kidding.

You're going to think you need another shower when you step outside, even if you just took one. And are you sitting down? Meteorologist David Ernst says we're only going up from here, in a muggy sort of way.

And I haven't tried to get into my sons' high chair lately. I don't think I'm supposed to fit. But another Dad didn't get the message. Check out his battle in What's Trending at 5:25 and 6:25.

But don't wait until then to join us. We're on right now!
