The powerful storm flattens the Bahamas and heads to the U.S.

Thursday - August 25, 2011

(Thanks for the follow on Twitter: @bobhowell_wsfa)

Hello from the anchor office in the WSFA 12 Newsroom.  We're almost to the weekend....hang on for one more day!

She's big and has the potentially to be bad.  Hurricane Irene raked the Bahama Islands before moving out to the South Atlanta and eventually up the east coast.  Some worry she could be "the big one" for the Big Apple and other major metropolitan areas in the northeast.  We've got the latest on her track and intensity.

A big fire in Luverne.  An old peanut processing facility went up in smoke about 2 this afternoon.  We'll tell you how it started and what's left of the building.

The city of Selma cut the ribbon on the first phase of its Riverwalk Park downtown.  City leaders hope to use the Alabama River as a way to attract more visitors.

And, the judge in the state house corruption case resets the start of the retrial for the seven remaining defendants accused in an alleged vote buying scheme in the legislature. He's talking early January 2012.

Plus, we've got Friday Night Football a night early.  Highlights and scores of tonight's high school match ups.

Watch us at 10 p.m.

Bob H.
