Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.
Hope you had a lovely weekend, but the nice spring weather is about to change. Eric Thomas is tracking a large storm system out of the Gulf which could affect us for days, possibly through next weekend and threaten the All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. You’ll want to tune in to get his latest First Alert Forecast at 11:00.
Did you see the massive flames from a house fire in northwest Charlotte today? The structure went up like a match on flint. The only person in the house at the time of the fire got out without incident.
A warning tonight about shopping for trees or shrubs at your local home store—a Lowe’s employee was bitten by a 4-and-a-half-foot copperhead snake at the Denver store. We’re asking about the employee’s condition.
Something you don’t see every day—a woman driving her bass boat on a trailer through a car wash in Statesville. When she came out the other side, she caused $3,000 of damage.
When Oprah Winfrey was in town this weekend at JC Smith’s commencement ceremony, her long-time boyfriend Stedman forgot his shoe. A size 15 shoe—hard to find. No problem, Oprah called Cam Newton and he lent out his size 14’s. Thanks, Cam.
