We may be a couple days away from
Halloween, but lots of local children got all dressed up to celebrate the
holiday at the University of Alabama. WVUA's Emileigh Forrester paid a visit to
the scary ghosts and goblins, and the not so scary princesses and puppies.
While some kids chose
cute costumes, others chose to be creepy.
Now, whether trick-or-treaters
were dressed as superheroes, or hippies, or even a Disney characters, most
everybody agreed the gathering was a service to the community.
Many of our viewers have
sent us photos of storm damage throughout the area. You can see trees snapped
in half, crazy storm clouds, and heavy rains moving through the area.
Take a look at these
pictures: a storm moving across the Black Warrior River and Holt Lake; a tree
that literally snapped in half in Riverside Cemetery in Demopolis; a Coin-Op
Laundromat sign almost completely blown off; and a tree that fell, damaging a
shed in Peterson. ...Read more

Two ponies are spending the night in a much better place after they were rescued from a hog pin in Aliceville.
Brenda Westphal, the Founder of Circle 8 Ranch and Rescue said, "it was a round fenced in area, that looked like maybe it had a trap where hogs go in, but they can't get back out. I imagine these guys woke up this morning and didn't have anything to eat or drink. And I'm not sure how long its been." ...Read more
