Thanksgiving travel and terror alert

(WAFF) -

Millions of people will be traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday and unfortunately the busiest travel  week of the year begins with a warning from the State Department.  Good morning, Trent Butler here. 

This morning, we are sharing the latest on why the federal government is telling Americans to be extra careful if they travel outside the country.  So far, they aren't pointing to specific terrorist threats even though the recent attacks in Paris and Mali did play a factor in this announcement. 

Here in the Valley, Drake State Technical College has a new president this morning after Dr. Helen McAlpine was placed on administrative leave.  The school isn't releasing many details about why she was removed from this job only saying it's a personnel matter. 

We're continuing to get you ready for Saturday's Iron Bowl and for another cold morning.  David Ernst will let you know if you'll need to scrape frost off the windshield again.  Please join David, Margo Gray and me for a Tuesday edition of WAFF 48 News Today.
