Charlotte reinforcement possible depending on Sandy's path

Good morning on this Friday! Today is October 26. This is Christine Nelson. I'm at my desk taking a final look at the rundown. Here's a heads up on what we are covering when you turn on WBTV News This Morning. We're on from 4:30-7:00 a.m.!

LIVE: We're anticipating Charlotte crews could be taking a 3 a.m. phone call over the weekend to help with Hurricane Sandy. While we may see minimal effects here, folks in the northeast will get hit with some violent weather by Sunday. Cam Man Ron Lee has details on how companies like Charlotte-based Duke Energy will be prepping if they're called on for extra reinforcement.

"Whatever happened...I'm sure he's guilty of." Those are the words from a son about his father's disturbing involvement with child sex abuse within the Boy Scouts of America. We confront the local man at his home to see what he has to say about the allegations. Plus we'll read the statement given to WBTV from the Boy Scouts where they talk about their failure to protect young boys.

Plus if you're struggling to lose weight maybe one man's story will give you some confidence. He not only lost literally hundreds of pounds, he did it in one year! We'll tell you how... And here's a hint: it wasn't through gastric bypass surgery.

You'll want to pay close attention to our weather updates every 10 minutes today. There are going to be some noticeable changes in our forecast you need to prepare for.

I'll see you on the air in a minute!
