Happy Friday! This is Jonathan Hardison and I hope you're having a nice evening. Here are some of the stories we're working on for ou tonight.
Tracking 2 rounds of storms
We've got a possibility of two rounds of severe weather coming in tonight and tomorrow and one of the most important warning systems, the NOAA weather radio transmitter in Birmingham, is offline. Our Erika Gonzalez spent the evening testing various other ways to get the storm warnings and she's got an easy breakdown for you tonight on Fox6 News at 9 (spoiler alert: Our WBRC Weather App has customizable alerts and works with just a cell or WiFi signal).
And J-P will spend the 90 minutes of FOX6 News at 9 and 10 updating and refining his thinking about the severe weather threats both overnight and tomorrow so you can be prepared no matter which app or weather radio you're using to stay alert.
Rabies cases in St. Clair County
I don't know why you would, but if you're in St. Clair County and decide to play with wild animals, just don't! The county has seen an unusually high number of rabies cases so far this year and our Christy Hutchings (@Fox6Christy) is there tonight digging up new information on why county officials think this is happening and how they're trying to contain it.
I hope you'll join us for these stories and more beginning at 9! Watch us on air, online at
