Ebola outbreak in West Africa could put flights on alert

Good morning!

Here's what we're working on in the WAFF newsroom:

First, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa could put international flights under extra scrutiny.

The CDC is considering increasing screening for people entering the U.S., as they look at ways to protect Americans from the deadly virus. Meanwhile, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. is now in critical condition.

Also, today a trial for a Sheffield man charged with capital murder is expected to begin.

Damien Shipley is accused of killing 27 year old Dorian Hamilton in February 2013 during a home invasion.  Prosecutors say he shot Hamilton through a door while Hamilton tried to keep him and two other men from breaking in. 

We'll have previews of this trial beginning at 5AM. 

And finally, meteorologist David Ernst will have your work and school week forecast. http://www.waff.com/weather
