Cities and counties worried about who pays for cleanup

Wednesday - May 4, 2011

7 days after the storms hit -

Tonight Governor Bentley and I talk about how he's coping with all the devastation and loss of life following the terrible tornado outbreak.  I also asked him why the state has stopped giving out an official death toll. Dr. Bentley also told me about his decision that will relieve cash-strapped cities and counties from having to pay for part of the cost of cleaning up the debris left in the tornadoes' wake.  We'll share all of the answers at 10.

Plus, we'll show you how folks in the River Region have packed up and headed north to do whatever they can to help their fellow Alabamians in need.  The same story for folks hurting in Elmore County and Tallapoosa County. 

And, we'll have a story no news anchor likes to report - a three-year old little girl has been killed.   Her mother's boyfriend is charged with murder.

Hope you'll join us tonight for all these stories and a cool, May 5th forecast, too.

See you on the set at 10.
