Good morning! Its' July 10. This is Christine Nelson. I went through the rundown with our lead producer this morning. Here is a look at the stories I think you'll want to see when you turn on WBTV News This Morning. We're on from 4:30-7:00 a.m. and live streaming on the web!
WBTV's Cam Man Ron Lee has the best look at a problem being taken care of right now along I-77 in South Carolina. Crews are trying to repair a 2 1/2 foot hole on the interstate. There is concern that work will not be complete before morning rush hour and that will mean the commute might be messy in that area. We'll have more details on where the problem is and have alternates to get you around it.
Another deck collapse to report this morning. This time more than two dozen people were on the second-story deck when it collapsed! We're learning about some of the injuries people sustained.
The sole suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is due in court today.
Plus, school is out for the summer but the trying to continue to learn when you have a language barrier could be difficult. WBTV's Astrid Martinez has an all new story on a program aimed at helping people in that situation not fall behind.
We'll live on the air now!
