Two separate accidents take their toll

Monday - May 9, 2011

*** Twitter users - Please follow me at bobhowell_wsfa. Thanks! ***

I'm sure word spread like wildfire through the small south Alabama town. Two of their young people were killed in an auto accident just across the Florida line.  Then a third was injured in a wreck in Covington County.  They all lived in Red Level - population 556.  Our own Brian Henry went there to talk with the folks who knew the youngsters best.  The first of his reports airs at 5.

As towns and cities dig out and rebuild after the tornado outbreak nearly two weeks ago...their local economies will actually benefit from sales of storm relief essentials like building materials, appliances and furniture.  More on that from Elmore County.

We'll also share some incredible numbers...dollars and cents numbers.  We're fast approaching $600,000 in local donations for our WSFA 12 News Fund and Food Drive and the relief efforts for the American Red Cross.  Oh yes, don't let me forget the 30 tons of food and supplies generous viewers dropped off last Friday.  Can't say 'thank you' enough!

And, did you hear? A member of the Alabama congressional delegation spent her Mother's Day in Afghanistan.  Details on why Martha Roby made the trip on the holiday weekend.

Hope you'll join us start at 5 - then at 6, 9 (on 12.2) and wrapping things up at 10 p.m.

Look forward to seeing you. 

Take care,

Bob H.
