Cruise ship battered

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.

A cruise ship got caught in terrible wind and waves—some 40’ tall.  It was rocked, damaged and some passengers suffered injury.  That ship is back in port tonight and we’re talking with a couple from Statesville who says it was a terrifying ordeal and can’t wait to get home.

And the field shrinks again.  Christie and Carly are dropping out of the GOP presidential sweepstakes.  Governor Chris Christie and businesswoman Carly Fiorina both pulled less than 5% in the New Hampshire primary this week.  Today, the rest of the field spent hours and hours stumping all across the Palmetto state.  The South Carolina Republican primary is one week from Saturday, the Democratic primary is a week later.

For the first time in Charlotte Hornets history, the organization is offering loyalty pricing.  They’re giving fans a chance to buy season tickets for next year at this year’s current price.  Our reporter Coleen Harry is asking fans if it’s worth it.

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s cold and getting much colder tonight and tomorrow.  Wind chills in the upper elevations are in the 15 below zero range tonight.  We won’t see that kind of arctic air, but meteorologist Eric Thomas says Charlotte will see the teens for the next few nights.

Please join Eric, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00!
