Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom with some good news. After a tense day of searching, a missing woman and her 5-year-old great grandson have been found safe and sound. Mary Ann Yoder left the house at 5:30 a.m. to take her grandson to school. They never made it. Instead, the pair were spotted at a gas station this afternoon, then discovered at an exit off I-40 near Winston-Salem tonight. We're talking to the family to see why they ended up there.
Charlotte residents will soon pay higher water bills. City Council tonight approved a $2.1 billion dollar budget that includes a monthly increase in water-and-sewer. It will add about $2 to your monthly bill on average.
Duke Energy has signed an agreement with Virginia and North Carolina to pay for the clean up of the coal ash that spilled into the Dan River in February. The next question is, how soon will Duke try to recoup that cost by passing it on to the consumer?
Tomorrow is primary day in South Carolina. Make sure to take a picture ID to the polls as the law has changed.
Weather-wise, we're in a summer time pattern this week. Eric Thomas say heat, humidity and afternoon storms will be the story for a while.
Please join Eric, Molly Grantham and me for WBTV News at 11:00 in just a few minutes!
