Bear sighting in Leeds and make sure 911 can find you in an emergency

Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope you're having a nice Wednesday. Here are some of the stories we're working on for tonight.

Seen any wild bears lately? No, seriously! I'm asking because neighbors in Leeds say they've seen a bear nosing around their neighborhood and Sherea Harris will have this bear story tonight starting on FOX6 News at 9. 

Can 911 find you?

I'll be honest, I take this sort of thing for granted. When you call 911, you expect them to be able to know where you are, especially if you have a cell phone. But we found a case out of the Atlanta area where a woman was caught in a creek, her phone pinged off a cell tower in a neighboring county, sending first responders in the wrong direction. Tonight we'll try to explain how that happened and what you need to remember if you ever have to call for help. 

I hope you'll join us for these stories and more starting at 9! Watch us on air, online at or through the WBRC News app.
