Storm Cleanup Begins...School Leader Accused of Assault

Here's what we are working on for News Leader 9 Morning!

Cleanup begins this morning after yesterday's powerful storms. East Alabama emergency crews are asking residents to stay away from affected areas. Meanwhile, officials from the National Weather Service will be on the ground in Lee County this morning. They've already confirmed a tornado touched down near Auburn. Workers from the Salvation Army are also setting up a mobile feeding unit and will have a pastoral care team on site. In Georgia, students in Harris County will not report to school today because of storm damage.

Thank the holiday season for a slight boost in jobs numbers. The unemployment rate for October sits at 10.2% in Georgia, down from 10.3% in September. Labor leaders attribute the increase mainly to seasonal hiring.

A principal of a Georgia high school is facing charges for allegedly assaulting a middle school student. However, the principal denies he did anything wrong. We'll take a closer look at the allegations.

Thanksgiving is a week away, but here at WTVM we're asking folks to "Share Your Thanks by Giving". We're collecting donations for local food banks. Tonight on News Leader 9 at 11, Barbara Gauthier takes a closer look at hunger in the Valley and how small donations can make a big difference.

 

Join us for these stories and more this morning beginning at 5:30 AM!

See ya then,
