Hello everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom. We certainly dodged the big storm that caused 39 deaths across the south this week. Cool, stable air put us under a dome of protection while points west and east got hammered with heavy rains and tornado touchdowns. The lesson is, don't this was an exercise in crying wolf. The next time, we may not be so lucky.
A massive fireball rocked the town of Lynchburg, Virginia when a train hauling crude oil jumped the tracks and exploded. The pictures taken by people nearby are frightening. Many residents are just now able to get back into their homes.
Remember the Cherryville high school girl who got kicked out of her prom for wearing slacks and not a formal dress? Her school principal apologized today, but not the teacher who gave her the boot. She was also refunded $45 for her ticket to the dance.
The rain we did get this week hasn't hurt the golfing conditions at Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship which begins with the first round tomorrow. Delano Little is talking to pros about how they plan to attack the layout.
Please join Delano, Eric Thomas, Molly Grantham and me for WBTV News at 11:00 in just a few minutes!
