A light turnout expected for the city election today.  Candidates for city council and mayor are on the ballot.  We'll start our live coverage of election day at 5 p.m. with results as soon as the votes are counted.
Did you feel any of the rumblings associated with the Virginia earthquake?  Folks who work in Montgomery's tallest building, the RSA Tower, say they definitely felt the tremors.  We'll talk with them at 6 p.m.
A cab driver has been arrested in the death of an University of Alabama football player.  Aaron Douglas was found dead at a house party near Jacksonville, Florida in May.  The man arrested is charged with homicide manslaughter and sale and delivery of a controlled substance, namely methadone.
And, Hurricane Irene could be a big one.  She appears to be on track for a date with the east coast states.  Our entire Storm Team is tracking her every movement and will fill us in starting at 5.
