Tragedy on the Tracks: 4 dead after train hits charter bus

Tuesday's horrific bus/train crash in Biloxi has now claimed four lives. The latest victim was a woman who died around 6:30 pm at Merit Health in Biloxi. That brings the death toll to two men and two women. Dozens of other senior citizens from Texas were injured when the charter bus they were riding on got stuck on the tracks at Main Street in Biloxi. 

Lauren: Rain returns this weekend

Patchy fog may slow your morning drive. Visibility could briefly drop to less than one mile. I expect this to quickly burn off this morning with ample sunshine today. Highs will climb to around 70°. We’ll quiet and cold tonight, with lows in the upper 30s. Mid 70s return on Thursday with increasing cloud cover ahead of our next weather maker.
