Good morning! We are working for you this morning and here are just some of the stories off the top of our list:

But first, we want to say thank you to all our veterans out there on this Veterans Day!

Just a heartbreaking story, Birmingham Police, saying an 8-year-old is accused of killing a 1-year-old girl.  The mother of that baby was not around at the time and is now charged with manslaughter.

Today's weather will be nice, but we are in the moderate to slight risk for severe weather soon.  Mickey will tell you what to expect!

Also, Hurricane Kate forms in the Atlantic north of Bermuda, the 4th hurricane of Atlantic season.

Cullman police say 67-year-old Benita Diane Burks Gunter was killed on her bicycle after she was hit by a car.

A mother and daughter in Irondale facing theft charges after police say the pair took $88,000 from the city development board.

New this morning, the University of Missouri stepping up security after reports of threats to campus on social media.

New video to show you this morning from Ohio showing the aftermath of a small plane crash into an apartment building. At least two people are confirmed dead.

The latest College Football Playoff rankings are out!  Alabama now 2nd behind Clemson.  Ohio State is 3rd with Notre Dame 4th.  We'll get analysis from longtime college football writer, Lars Anderson, formerly of Sports Illustrated, now with Bleacher Report.

On this Veterans Day, we talk with Noah Galloway and Edgar Harrell.  Mr. Harrell survived the sinking of the USS Indianapolis (the ship that delivered the atomic bomb that was dropped on Japan).  A Japanese sub torpedoed the ship, sinking it.  Because it was so top-secret, a distress signal wasn't sent.  1,100 men went into the water.  A little more than 300-survived due to hypothermia and shark attacks.  

Be sure to tune into Good Day Alabama on WBRC/FOX6, 4:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., streaming live on the web and on the WBRC News app!

Mike Dubberly
