Bursting at the seams!  You won't believe how much has been crammed into a warehouse in Eclectic - items for tornado victims - donated by caring folks in our part of the state! If you watch at 6 tonight - you won't have to imagine what it looks like - we'll show you.

Sadly, one of the people who worked to help the folks who suffered such devastating losses has died.  Martha Holley was a school nurse at Elmore County High School in Eclectic.  Tonight we'll talk with folks who knew and loved her.

A University of Alabama football player - offensive lineman Aaron Douglas - died today.  The 21-year-old had transferred from a junior college in January.  The cause of his death has not been released.  He was in Florida when he passed away.

So, what will the new owners of parts of the old Montgomery Mall do with the property?  The specifics from a morning news conference include moving some city services there.  The full story at 5 p.m.

And, Rich Thomas says keep your umbrella handy...scattered showers are moving back in...but no significant chance of severe weather.

Hope you have a great night ahead...and that you'll make us a part of it!

Take care -
