Foggy start to work week

Areas of locally dense fog could affect your commute as you start your Monday morning. Be sure to allot yourself a few extra minutes on your morning drive. Most of the fog should begin to lift around 8-9 a.m.

Record-breaking rainfall continues in South Carolina

Widespread rainfall continues across South Carolina, with record-breaking accumulations in many cities being reported. In just 48 hours, Columbia accumulated almost 20 inches of rain, while other cities have seen as much as 13 inches in a short amount of time. The flooding is also to blame for 5 deaths in South Carolina. Rain is expected to continue in many parts but will begin to taper off.

AL Red Cross volunteers dispatched

12 volunteers with the Alabama Red Cross have been dispatched to aid in the South Carolina flooding relief efforts. The volunteers represent 7 Alabama cities, including Birmingham and Gadsden.

ABI takes over investigation of shooting

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation has now taken over the investigation of an officer-involved shooting that happened in Muscle Shoals Sunday. According to the Colbert County Sheriff, a man, who they describe as suicidal, was armed with a gun and was shot by an officer. It's unclear which responding officer or deputy shot the man. His name and condition remain unknown at this time.
