Good morning on this Wednesday, September 5. This is Christine Nelson sending you an email on what's happening today. There are a lot of stories to cover this morning so here's a snippet of what you will see when you turn on WBTV News This Morning from 4:30-7:00 a.m.
ALERT: If your child attends a school in the Fort Mill School District listen up! Schools are on a 2-hour delay this morning. The school district's website says five of its schools are without water right now due to a water line leak that happened in the town of Fort Mill. In a statement, the school district says it is possible classes will be canceled today since there is no guarantee the leak can be repaired in time. An new update is set to come down at 6 a.m. Keep it on WBTV for the very latest announcement from Fort Mill Schools.
We have the newest developments from what happened on day one of the Democratic National Convention. The night was electric not only inside Time Warner Cable Arena but outside as well in the form of protests! We'll let you see and hear for yourself what happened. Plus another round of road closures you're going to have to look out for around Bank of America Stadium. We also learned a busy exit on I-77 is going to close that will be a huge impact on tomorrow's morning commute. We have the best live team coverage with WBTV Cam Man Ron Lee, Astrid Martinez, Brian Stephenson and first alert traffic reporter Tonya Rivens.
ICYMI (in case you missed it!): We're taking things a step further in our DNC coverage and finding some really unique stories. One we're going to show this morning will not only make you smile, but probably dance in the streets too! We'll take you uptown for a story a lot of people are talking about.
See you on the air!
