Rescue crews searching for missing 17-year-old girl after kayak flips

Rescue crews are searching for a 17-year-old girl after her kayak flipped on the Tennessee River. Strong currents have pushed divers out of the water, but boats are still actively searching for the missing girl. 

1 injured in chase, officer-involved shooting that ended in east Birmingham

Oporto Madrid is shut down in both directions following a police chase and an officer-involved shooting. Authorities attempted to stop a vehicle in Shelby County early Wednesday morning, according to Cpt. Ken Burchfield with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. 

Mostly sunny skies with higher humidity

With higher humidity, temperatures are several degrees warmer across the Valley compared to yesterday morning. We’re starting this morning in the low/mid-70s for the most part, although there could be a few spots that do dip into the upper 60s briefly.
