Terri is live at 5 a.m. with ways you can help victims of historic floods in Louisiana

Good morning!  These are some of the stories we are covering for you this morning on WBRC/FOX6 Good Day Alabama:

Happening now, rescue crews and brave volunteers are still working around the clock in Louisiana to rescue more people from those historic floods. At least eight people are now confirmed dead from the flooding and over 11,000 are in shelters this morning.

Terri will be live at 5 a.m. with ways you can help those affected.

There is still a concern for more rain in Louisiana and Mickey is taking a closer look at that a little later this morning.

You will also hear from the man who rescued a woman and her dog from a car submerged in water.

A special session is underway to discuss lottery proposals, but the lottery wasn't discussed on day one.  We'll be in Montgomery again today covering the session.
