It's a little hard to tell, but this Gurley home sustained serious damage in a fire overnight. And it appears lightning from one of the overnight storms caused it. That's what one firefighter told our Lauren Morrison. Fortunately, no one was injured. Lauren is one of at least three of our reporters who are canvassing the valley, checking out damage this morning. They're also looking for any trouble spots you might encounter on your way to work or school this morning.
I mentioned two other reporters. Marie Waxel is in the Shoals. She's checking out another fire in Rogersville and some other damage there.
And Muriel Bailey is in Northeast Madison County. Look for all three of them live, definitely at the top of each half hour this morning on WAFF 48 News Today. And if you look closely, you'll probably see them more often than that!
Our meteorologists have been tag teaming in the Weather Center all night long. David Ernst is busy, tracking where the storms are headed right now and what you can expect as you head out the door and plan your lunch and drive home later today. Check out his Weather On The Tens. http://bit.ly/GSwBfq
We have more in news, including Governor Bentley's message about ebola to medical providers in Alabama http://bit.ly/10o99qE, a new contract possibility for Huntsville City Schools' superintendent and a new GM recall.
So, settle into that chair if you can. Or, at least, turn the volume up, and we'll provide what you need to know.
Now, let's get this Friday started. See you on TV!
