ON WAFF 48 NEWS TODAY

It's Tuesday. Here's what we have going on in the newsroom this morning. 

We're monitoring reports out of Oklahoma of multiple fatalities after tornadoes touch down. The same storm moved through Texas and Arkansas overnight. We'll show you the storm track and what it's left behind.

How often do you check the sex offender registry? Law enforcement says you need to before you buy a home, change daycares or pick a school. At 5:00 & 6:00 a.m. we'll show you how to use the registry website. 

Both Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump have almost secured their parties nomination but two more states are holding primaries today. We'll breakdown the delegate count and the impact voters in Nebraska & West Virginia will have after today.

At 5:16 a.m. you'll see a story that will make you hesitate every time you pick up a soda can. You have to hear what one boy says he found in his drink.

Chief Justice Roy Moore is promising to fight his suspension from the bench. For the second time in his career, Moore faces possible removal over an order he sent to probate judges to not issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. We'll break down the ethics complaint against him and why this feels like deja vu at 5:30 & 6:30 a.m.

By the way, he's just one of three top state leaders catching heat. Remember the effort to impeach our Governor? Also, the fact that Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard is facing almost two dozen ethics charges. We'll update you on where everything stands.

Of course, we'll lighten the mood a bit with "What's Trending" at 5:55 a.m.

Don't forget to tune in for the roadwork breakdown in your "Road Report" every 15 minutes starting at 5:52 a.m.

See you on the air starting at 4:30 a.m.
