Honor flight is welcomed home and we have some tips on what to do if you're bitten by a snake

Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope you're having a nice evening.

Honor flight returns home

If you're in the Tuscaloosa area tonight I hope you'll consider heading out to the airport right now to be part of the welcoming committee to welcome home a group of WWII veterans who've spent the day on an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. to see the WWII Memorial for themselves and meet Sen. Shelby and Rep. Aderholt. We owe everything we love about modern America to these men and women and their sacrifice and bravery, and I'll be honest, the video of them realizing our appreciation for them and seeing the memorial for themselves never gets old no matter how many Honor Flights we cover. Josh Gauntt is live at the airport tonight as they come home. Watch in our WBRC News app by clicking Live Events or if you're on a desktop,


Watch out for snakes

And I joke with Sherea Harris sometimes that she's our wild animal reporter, but that joke seems all to true tonight with a double-dose of snake stories. First on Fox6 News at 9 Sherea is looking at the best and fastest ways to treat snake bites because we're getting a lot of calls this week that the warmer weather is bringing the snakes out of their hiding holes and into a lot of neighborhoods and some homes. And on Fox6 News at 10 Sherea talked to some critter control experts on how to avoid paying them to come capture a rouge snake by giving you tips on how to keep them out of your house to begin with.

We'll see you tonight right after American Idol! Watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
