Alert: Wind causes thousands of outages; Baby held at gunpoint

Good morning! It's Friday, January 13. This is Christine Nelson in the WBTV newsroom. I wanted to send you a quick look at what we'll be covering on WBTV News This Morning.

The wind has been howling overnight! It's so bad it has been causing some major outages across Mecklenburg County. WBTV's Cam Man Ron Lee is live with video of power lines down. He also talked to residents who have been left in the dark.

Plus... who in their right mind would hold a gun to a baby's head?! It happened! The armed robbery in Lancaster County that will leave you speechless.

And... WBTV's Derrick Rose will be live with a story you, or someone you know, will be talking about today! Let's just say it doesn't matter if you're a sports fan, male or female, but you're mouth will be uttering this person's name by the time the weekend is over.

Your first alert weather forecast and traffic updates are every 10 minutes!

See you at 4:30 a.m.!
