TONIGHT AT 10: Zika virus heating up across the country

I hope you’re having a great Wednesday evening and staying nice and warm.

Talk of the Zika virus continues to heat up across the country and here in the Tennessee Valley. In fact, we have a confirmed case of a person with that virus in Morgan County as of today. At 10, Franklin White will talk to a local health official on the cost associated with fighting this virus here in the Valley.

We’ve learned that Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle plans to ask the City Council to make amendments to the city’s vehicle-for-hire ordinance. We’re told this is to make way for Ride Share companies like Uber, Lyft and Zip Car to operate in the Rocket City.

And a fast crook made a fast robbery at a fast food restaurant. He hit the Hardee’s in Meridianville recently. Check out the surveillance video for your chance at a hefty reward in this week’s Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.
We hope you’ll join Kim, Brad, Scott and me tonight at 10.
