BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - I'm Sarah Verser on the set of Good Day Alabama with heartbreaking news from the southwest:
Four people have now been killed in Texas from severe storms since Friday. That includes one person who was found dead in Wimberley, about 35 miles southwest of Austin, and 12 people are missing after a house washed down the Blanco River and smashed into a bridge. Earlier Monday, police found the body of a 14-year-old boy and his dog who had been reported missing Sunday night. Police say Damien Blade was found in a storm drain near his home, and he apparently had drowned. It's not over yet. More severe weather is possible for those regions and state officials are sending out a warning, folks in the area are not in the clear just yet.
Now to the must see video from an apartment fire on Birmingham's southside. It's video you'll see only on FOX6, in the WBRC News App or on MyFoxAL.com. 21 units were destroyed after the building went up in flames yesterday afternoon. Everyone made it out alive, including a man and his dog who went to extreme lengths for safety. Tune in around 7:30 a.m. and Clare Huddleston will be talking to the man who shot the amazing cellphone video.
Terri Brewer is previewing a controversial vote expected today by the Tuscaloosa City council on whether or not to revoke the license of Kennedy's Bar. The place has had numerous crime reports there.
