Certainly was no criminal conspiracy, with any Russians. What. We're learning about the Justice, Department's, take on the investigation. Plus. A 38 million dollar overhaul, to Appalachian, Power company's, power grid and it's all hidden underground, it's. The only system, like this in the area. We'll. Give you an exclusive look, at the system beneath the streets of downtown Roanoke, and how it will improve your service, and. The. Roanoke rail yard dogs are making history tonight on the ice and a semi brown semi, final, round of the playoffs excuse me but tonight we're looking at the history they're making off the ice with their attendance numbers and how they're fitting in in a star city. But. First we are tracking the potential, for heavy rain and some strong winds over the Easter holiday weekend it's been sunny and quiet today but that is about to change a new round of severe weather is hitting parts of the deep south you can see that with, that yellow and orange on our satellite and radar and, that is moving our way the, storms have brought damaging winds and hail and are impacting, thousands, including people in Arkansas, who had to be rescued from flash flooding as that, system pushes, east tomorrow it, will threaten areas from Florida to Washington, DC. Including, us Storm Team 10 chief meteorologist, Jeff Hanna which joins us now with more on what we might expect to see right here at home Jeff yeah, guys I want to show you the storm system you need to know this that the rest of today and tonight you've got nothing, to worry about, as a matter of fact the shower some earlier today now just a distant memory but, this storm system is packing a huge punch really, from Tennessee, all the way south and Louisiana.
Several Tornado warnings right now several, severe thunderstorm, warnings right now with several tornado watch boxes, right now and all this is heading to the north and to the east towards, us already. The Storm Prediction Center, has put areas, along. In West of the Parkway, in a slight risk for severe weather that's a level two out of level five areas. East of the Parkway that's Lynchburg and Southside. You're an enhanced, risk for, severe weather that's a level three out of level five without question, the two main threats for us tomorrow will be heavy rain and damaging wind but. The tornado threat is not, zero, for areas east of the Parkway heading into tomorrow afternoon into, tomorrow, evening at, the, ground tomorrow it's going to be breeze you're gonna have winds 15 to 25 miles per hour but you go about 3,000, feet high could have some winds 5055, even 60 miles per hour so what's going to happen is in some of these cells the, wind, is going to be brought down to, the surface so we could easily have some wind gusts over 60 miles, per hour and some of these cells even, if they're not tornadic tomorrow the chance for damaging wind is elevated. For us here especially. Between around noon and 8:00, p.m. so. The timing of this the worst of the weather noon to 8:00 tomorrow, the threat again flooding, damaging wind gusts and all the threat, for a tornado is, low it is not zero and location. Is going to be all of the Storm Team 10 viewing area with perhaps the worse the weather east, of the Parkway John. Thank. You Jeff this is a good time to remind you at home you can stay up to date with the latest conditions, with the storm team team weather app. The.

Tonight French investigators believe. An electrical, short-circuit is, likely, what, started the huge fire at nutri cathedral but the investigation, into the official cause will take time because crews can, search the rubble because of safety concerns now.

Power just completed, a 38 million dollar over halt modernized, its underground electric, network in downtown, Roanoke 10, News reporter Rachel Lucas, got an exclusive, look at how all of this will improve your service. The. New system took four years and 15, miles of, cable to complete and you've been walking across it the entire time because, it's all underground. Ok, to, devolve a state-of-the-art, power, boost, to the star city, that's the Transformers, the equipment. That we've installed. In. Case you've ever wondered what was below this, is what it looks like, Appalachian, power took our cameras, underneath, the pavement to see the bells and whistles and how, it all works, everyone. Walks across and you don't know where it's that director. Of distribution, operations Scott chambers, drove in from Charleston, West Virginia to, talk to us about the system that he says will reduce power outages, and speed up response times when there is a problem we, have some new technologies, in place that'll allow us to do switching. For our folks quicker, and safer chambers. Walked us through the, brains of it all this, is our distribution, dispatch center the most interesting, part we, can control it here in this building on Franklin, Road and when an outage does happen. Those folks work 24/7. And they're watching, this system, every. Day now get a notification on, this electronic, board before you can even get a chance to make a phone call, meaning, crews can respond much sooner than before. The.
Bigger System means that even if there is a problem, most likely customers. Will never know we're, serving new customers, every day we're adding new load to the system, that we have and it. Will function well we're now prepared, for the. Continued, growth of rono this, new underground, system is expected to last Roanoke, City for, decades in Roanoke, I'm Rachel Lucas 10 News working for you a new. Home for local, fire fighters is starting to take shape you, can see that in these pictures, from Montgomery, County emergency, services, construction, for the new reiner Fire Department and Rescue Squad is well underway the. New 46, acre property, on Reiner Road will cost about. $375,000. The, county also plans to build parks and, recreation, fields and facilities there, in the future a unique. Project will soon provide dozens, of homes to people in need, this time next year construction. Should be well underway for Habitat. Village, in Danville. The announcement. By Habitat, for Humanity, was just made this week but planning has taken ten years, Habitat, villages, are all across the country including in Lynchburg, and Charlottesville, but this will be the first for Southside. Once. We have a better feel for how quickly we, can construct the houses, we, will do a better job you know being able to recruit the families, we, do anticipate that, this will be highly, desirable. And. You'll hear from the organization, that donated the land for the village that's coming up tonight on 10 News at six. Pieces. Of art showcasing. Spots around our region are now featured, on several Valley, Metro buses, then, who worked at on display and the goal of the art by bus program. Looks. Pretty good meanwhile, let's take a live look from Lynchburg. This is our Liberty University, Skycam, sunny, skies today but. There's more on the storms that we're tracking for the weekend at the brain. He. Said five. You. Were looking at a live picture from, a Martinsville, New College Institute Skycam. Look at those trees swinging back and forth it's been a breezy arguably, windy, day at times for us and it looks like those winds are going to stay elevated, over the next couple of days obviously, tomorrow with a very active weather day with the front moving in the winds will be at their strongest and any strong to severe thunderstorm, that we have move across Southwest, Central and South, Side Virginia right, now though outside of the wind we are seeing some sunshine this morning we were awakened by some showers, this afternoon we, saw more sunshine and we have been dry since around, about, 10:00, or 11:00 o'clock this morning, tonight.
Looks To be a night where you've got nothing, really to worry about could there be a few showers after, 3:00 4:00 o'clock in the morning absolutely, best chance will be along the southern Blue Ridge time you head out the door tomorrow morning it looks like you may have some spotty showers around on Good Friday but, overall, the worse the weather comes in for us as we head say from lunchtime on tomorrow. This is around 1:00 at, that point in time there's gonna be a line of some strong to perhaps even severe thunderstorms, from, seiya the panhandle, of West Virginia, south into Boone North Carolina that. Could potentially, even impact you folks towards the NRV and Mountain Empire at that point this, is going to be a storm, line that does indeed move it's not going to stay stationary I think the worse the weather for Roanoke will be between roughly 2 and 5 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Lynchburg. Southside. Your worst weather will probably come between 3:30, and about, 8:00 tomorrow, one, line will leave us there may be another line now however that enters from the south moving to the north as we, head into the evening hours, that will create more in the way of some heavier downpours by. Around 11:00 I think no later than that our severe weather threat ends but, by 11 o'clock Friday, evening we may still have a couple, of more rounds of rain moving in throughout, the course of the overnight so it looks like it's going to be a very active day tomorrow frankly, it looks like it's gonna be pretty active into Friday night but I think the severe weather potential will leave us at some point in time Friday evening, and then. On Saturday we're, just going to have some spotty leftover, showers around we will probably see a little bit of sunshine on Saturday but I also think on Saturday we're going to have the chance for at least some isolated to widely scattered showers. Chance for rain 30 or 40 percent so. The storm threats for us tomorrow damaging, wind flash flooding and lightning where to put all that on the moderate category the. Threat for tornado and hail we're, gonna put that on the lower end of things doesn't mean it's not going to happen I just think that the main two threats for us tomorrow will be damaging wind and flash flooding and I. Think that although the, threat is low for tornado the, threat is not zero for areas east of, the Blue Ridge flooding. Need to talk about that potential tomorrow we're expecting anywhere, from one to three inches of rain keep, in mind the six hour flood risk isn't about an inch and a half to two and a half inches so, we could also have some localized. Flash flooding issues, come tomorrow as well and those river levels especially along the Dan may, rise tomorrow as well and then they have to watch that as we head into the holiday weekend as well rainy Friday so far this year Blacksburg. And Lynchburg 13 out of 15, Friday's have been wet Roanoke, 12 out of 15 Fridays Evan went so if you're kind of thinking, to yourself Fridays have been a very wet day for us so far this year you'd be right on the nose here's, some good news by Easter Sunday although a stray shower too cannot be ruled out Easter, Sunday we're looking at more sunshine, going to have temperatures around, say the low to mid 40s as you head off to sunrise. Services, and then as we head to, say brunch time on Sunday afternoon temperatures. Will likely be in the upper 50s it, has been the day with strong winds winds right now 10 to 20 miles per hour we've had some gusts in excess of 30 miles per hour and as I told you the winds are going to be a factor for us for at least the next couple of days and look at that high on Saturday again. Falling, into the upper 50s we're only in the low to mid 60's on Easter Sunday or dry Monday few showers Tuesday and Wednesday and by next Thursday we'll have a better chance for scattered showers so, after a cool weekend temperatures, start to go back up again by next week Britney the. Rono railyard dogs are set to make history tonight the, hockey, team is in the semi-finals, of the major or the minor league playoffs for the first time ever, and, that's a big moment for the star city's youngest.

The ice the players are here getting a little bit warmed up we got guys bringing hockey sticks over to the benches they are ready for go tonight and it's not only been great success, on the ice but they've also had great success off the ice and it's amazing the relationship, that they've been able to foster here in the Star City it was more than three years ago when the team announced, that the rail yard dogs were coming to Roanoke and that hockey was back and many people were hopeful, for success but there were some skeptics, based on some of the older teams here in Roanoke that had folded in the past but, now in their third season they've had lots of fun games the, team has been beat its attendance expectations. Even, setting to attendance, records this year and it's not only the fans that love hockey the cool thing here is, how the team, and the players feel, about Roanoke. And. I think our team, is really setting up nicely to love, Roanoke as well you know we, get comments, from the guys all the time that they enjoy being here and love, the downtown area, and the scenery. And then the outdoor stuff so it's. Been it's been a really nice relationship over the past two years the.

Just didn't, didn't look right the barclays called forest rangers and bear caretaker, Joe Rosenthal, came, to help. That's. When Eli, jumped, in to help he then. Got. Out in the current and as soon as his head went under I guess, it was just natural instinct. I mean I didn't say, nothing a nobody, I just sprung, out into the water and, kind. Of went went, for a pretty, big swim Eli, saved the bear and Joel was able to sedate, it bringing, it back to his farm. Will.

Now their stormy weather south, of us but Virginia is in the path of the storm Storm Team 10 has been tracking, that weather since it started in northern Texas and the central plains and started, chugging in our direction Storm, Team 10 chief meteorologist, Jeff Hanna which joins us now he's in the Weather Center Jeff is it going to get here and will it be that intense yeah I think it's gonna be pretty intense when it gets here tomorrow afternoon, and tomorrow evening let's, head on over and show you that we've got nothing to worry about for the rest of today really, tonight doesn't, look to be all that bad maybe a few showers late it's tomorrow when we're gonna be dealing with all this mess, that. You see really, from Kentucky south into parts of Louisiana and Mississippi this. Is going to move to the north and of these and as it does we're going to be in its path from around noon tomorrow through, about midnight tomorrow, night so as far as what we're looking at from the Storm Prediction Center, they have areas. In the mountains in a slight risk for severe, weather that's a level two out of level five while, areas in orange that's for Lynchburg and Southside, you are an enhanced, risk for severe weather tomorrow, afternoon, and tomorrow evening that's a level three out of level five without, question, the main two threats will be heavy rain and damaging wind although a tornado, cannot be ruled out in areas, east of the Parkway so, the impacts, again guaranteed. Tomorrow are going to pick up on heavy rain I think we're also gonna have some wind damage across. The region because this storm packs a punch I cannot. Rule out a tornado I cannot rule out the possibility of some hail as well and again as we plan things out for you for tomorrow in the morning may have a few showers cloudy, very warm, very mild, it's midday we're going to start to see some scattered showers and thunderstorms and by the latter part of the afternoon into, the evening storms. Will become likely, so again, the second half of tomorrow looks to be more active than the first half of tomorrow Britany. Uber. Has unveiled new security, changes following, the death of a South Carolina college student, police, say 21 year old Samantha Josephson. Mistakenly. Got into a car she thought was her uber she, was found dead hours, later the, driver of the car who didn't work for uber, is now charged with her murder in response.

They, should stop before entering, the vehicle and asked, the driver plainly. What's, my name. Uber. Is also rolling out a new alert system, that will remind you with push alerts to check the make model. License, plate and driver, of the uber you requested. Now. Facebook is back in hot water after it admits to collecting, the emails, of over a million, users. It's blaming a software, change that was supposed to protect privacy.
Yesterday. Facebook said the email contact, lists of thousands, of users were uploaded. Unintentionally. That's there were three, years ago the social media site made changes, to the process that users, went through to sign up before. The changes, users, were given the option, to load their email contacts, when they open an account, in order to find their friends but, in May of 2016. Facebook, stopped explaining. That users lists, could be uploaded, when they signed up meaning, in some cases the, lists were uploaded, without, their consent the, company said the mistakenly. Uploaded, contact, lists had not been shared with anyone outside of, Facebook. Now. That the redacted Mullah report has been released to the public there's, major criticism. From lawmakers about, Attorney General William bars summary. Of the report that was released in March lawmakers. Are expected to spend the next few days poring, over that 448. Page, report, but, already some, say the Attorney General's, letter written, after, the report was given to the Justice, Department, mischaracterized. The results, prior, to the reports, released today bar explained, the conclusions, in that letter Special. Counsel confirmed. That. The Russian government sponsored. Efforts to illegally, interfere, with, the 2016. Presidential, election but. Did not find that the Trump campaign, or other Americans, colluded. In those efforts. Virginia. Senator and vice chair of the House Intel, committee says he's concerned, about the, mischaracterizations. In that letter and promises. That his committee will continue to investigate, and. There are clear concerns from Virginia's Democratic, Party tonight that's what our political analyst, is saying. Played a major part in the former Virginia, Governor Terry. McAuliffe, decision, not to run for president, McAuliffe. Had been considering, that decision, to run for several months but announced last night that he would not 10, News political analyst, dr. Edie Lynch says it's clear that Virginia's, Democratic, Party thinks they need McAuliffe, as their chief fundraiser this, fall in order to have a chance of taking over the General Assembly Lynch, says this also points, to concerns, over whether, the Lieutenant Governor or the Attorney General, would be electable, in 2021.
For Statewide office, and McAuliffe. He, says may. Have decided to run himself, a lot. Of states have been considering. A major change to tobacco laws but one senator wants to make it a federal priority. Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants, to raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco nationwide. 221, mcconnell. Cited surveys that show forty, five percent of the state's high schoolers, have tried vaping, so. By raising the age that. You could legally purchase two twenty one, tobacco. On't be in most high schools. Presenting. Fewer opportunities for children to get their hands on vaping devices. The. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says 90% of cigarette smokers, tried their first cigarette before, they turned 18. Looking. To the future students, in Pittsylvania County got, an inside, look at jobs that could be on the horizon how, it can help put them on the right path. Plus. We're tracking, the chance for severe, weather we'll, let you know when and where it could hit but, first here is a look at how stocks of local interest finish today on Wall Street. Welcome. Back friends I'm storm team 10 meteorologist, chef Hannah which may be a few clouds around nothing, more than that it's actually very nice outside but. Work its gonna happen tonight as these clouds are really going to thicken up especially. After midnight and then after midnight also may actually have a few, showers moving in as well so what we're tracking yeah a low pressure system and an associated, front going move through here tomorrow tomorrow's. Gonna be the polar opposite, of today. Today. Had a few showers in the morning but in the afternoon we saw sunshine, good Friday looks, like we're gonna have some strong to even severe, thunderstorms, possible, looks, like some of the worst weather will be around sunset tomorrow right when Passover, begins looks, like we're going to have Saturday, being a little quieter, ok Saturday. Will be a day where, we're breezy, we're cooler we're gonna have some scattered showers around maybe, even a little bit of tiny hail but and I don't think gonna have any severe weather as we head into Saturday and. Then by Easter Sunday it looks like we're going to have a day, where we're going to be for the most part dry maybe a stray shower or two can't rule it out otherwise. It looks like we're partly to mostly cloudy on Easter Sunday with, temperatures pretty. Mild it, looks like we're going to cool down big-time on Saturday temperatures will start to go back up again as we head into Easter, Sunday so. Timing out the impacts for you for tomorrow in the morning we're gonna have some spotty to scattered showers around it's really from noon through about 8 maybe 9 o'clock, tomorrow we're, going to have some strong to even severe, thunderstorms, damaging, wind heavy rain could have some hail and a tornado cannot. Be ruled out in areas east of the Parkway then, as we head into tomorrow night it's going to be a night for us we're going to have some leftover showers, around maybe even a leftover Thunder, shower and it's going to be breezy at times as we head into tomorrow night as well so as far as how much rain we get from, now all the way through. Saturday looking. At around one to, two and a half inches of rain it could be a few folks that see a little bit less and that could be a few folks who get a little bit closer to three inches but for, the most part we're looking at around one to, two and a half inches of rain before all this said and done and that could produce some. Flooding we're gonna have to watch out for some ground. Flooding yeah. So I have to watch out for some river flooding, as we head into the weekend as well aches and pains forecast, for the next three days the pain level may go. Up a little bit for you if you suffer from fibromyalgia. Or perhaps migraines, looks like you're going to have, the pressure going down as we head into Friday and Saturday but by Sunday, Easter Sunday we're gonna start to see the pressure go back up again and that should mean you should start to feel a little bit better as we, head into the latter part of this holiday weekend temperatures, for us right now 70s. And low to mid 80s very, very, warm outside however, look. At these temperatures towards Omaha st. Louis and Chicago temperatures. 40s 50s and 60s once. We get this cold front out of here we're gonna turn much cooler again upper, 50s for a high on Saturday low, to mid 60's on Easter Sunday and by next week we should be in the 70s and 80s once, again so, your forecast for tonight mostly cloudy were mild overnight lows in the 50s and low to mid 60's again few showers will develop late tonight as, we head into the day tomorrow showers.

Look at the power grid underneath, your feet what. A 38, million, dollar Appalachian. Power renovation, project, means for, your service, but. First heavy rain the chance for severe storms maybe even flooding yes and that is a big, concern for a lot of people heading into the Easter holiday weekend, the system, that's now bringing tornadoes, and heavy rain to the Gulf Coast is getting, ready to turn its sights on us for, the timing of everything here's, Storm Team 10 chief meteorologist. Jeff Hanna wit Jeff yeah guys it looks like this storm is going to pack a punch for us tomorrow afternoon, into tomorrow evening main, threats will be heavy, rain and damaging, wind although a tornado, cannot be ruled out in areas east of the Parkway in yellow, here that's where we have a slight, risk of severe weather tomorrow that's, a level two out of level five areas. An orange this is basically for areas east of the Parkway that's, where we have an enhanced, risk for severe weather that's a level three, out of level five so. It looks like tomorrow is going to be a very active weather day. Especially. As we look into the afternoon and evening hours now one of the things we're be looking at is the wind. At the ground level tomorrow, looking at a southeast 115 225 but you go up about 3,000, feet and you're looking at winds 5055. In some places up to 60, miles per hour and in any storm that does form in the afternoon and evening tomorrow some of those strong winds up high can be drawn to the surface so that's why we're looking at a pretty impressive squall, line developing, as we head into tomorrow afternoon and, perhaps, even, lingering, in areas. Seigneur south side into the early evening hours of tomorrow so the timing of all this looks, like the worst weather will be between noon and 8:00 the major, to, threats would be flooding and damaging winds and location. Is all the Storm Team 10 area but I think the worst of the weather will, probably, be in areas east of the Parkway towards Lynchburg and Southside. More on this coming up in about 12, minutes I, thank. You Jeff by the way folks if you haven't already this is a great time to download the storm team weather app before the severe weather moves in and tomorrow, is one of those days where you're very likely to be tracking it it'll help you be up-to-date on the latest conditions when, we're not on the air all you have to do is search for WS, LS in your App Store a judge.

To me in Lexington. Hodgson, it's 10 News working. For you. Good. Evening friends I'm Storm Team 10 meteorologist. Jeff Hanna which all quiet on the radar, for us right now a few clouds starting, to push in on the satellite, though she, had say towards the Mountain Empire New River Valley we're really going to start to see those, clouds thickening, later tonight and later tonight also we will have the chance for some spotty showers you'll see that here on Future tracker by 3:00 3:30 4:00 o'clock in the morning there probably will be a few showers along the southern Blue Ridge notice. By around 8 a.m. the spotty showers become, maybe a little more numerous but really, nothing that is going to be too. Extreme, as we head into tomorrow morning however. Look, what happens by around 1:00 tomorrow afternoon a very healthy, line of showers and thunderstorms. From say the panhandle of West Virginia, all the way south and the mountains of North Carolina including for parts of the New River Valley Mountain Empire so from around noon through 8:00 tomorrow that's our worst weather Roanoke, your worst weather will be between around 2:00 and 5:00 p.m., Lynchburg, Southside, your worst weather will probably come anytime between roughly 3:30, and around, 8 o'clock now. One band of heavy rain and thunderstorms will get out of here by 7:00 there might be another one that moves in between 6:30, and around maybe 8:30, tomorrow evening and then. Overnight, Friday, night we're just going to have some leftover showers, around some. Of them could pack a little bit of a punch with some heavier rain as we head say from 11 p.m. through about maybe 4 a.m. but I don't think the severe weather threat is there beyond, about 8 9 o'clock tomorrow evening, which is good news then on Saturday, looks like we're going to have perhaps some. Spotty showers around chance for rain is there at around 30 or 40% on Saturday but certainly, Saturday looks to be a much drier and more tranquil, day than what we're going to have out there for tomorrow so the storm threats tomorrow damaging wind flash flooding letting you were to put that on the moderate anything so I think damaging. Wind and flooding /. Heavy rain will be our main to weather concerns, tomorrow however I cannot. Rule out the possibility for, a tornado in areas, east of the Blue Ridge and I cannot also rule out the possibility for, a little bit of hail in a few of these storms as well so, the chance for flooding is there for us tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening we're expecting, anywhere between one to three inches of rain the, six hour flash flood risk is between around an inch and a half and two and a half inches of rain so again, we're gonna have to not only to monitor the possibility, for some severe weather we're also going to have to monitor the potential, for some flood as well and if, you're saying to yourself man, it seems like a lot of Friday's have been wet in 2019.
You'd, Be right on the nose Blacksburg. Lynchburg 13 out of 15, Friday so far I've been wet Roanoke. 12 out of 15 Friday's, have been wet so, far this year for, your Easter Sunday forecast, as you head off to those sunrise services, we're looking at temperatures in the low to mid 40s and then by your Easter brunch were looking at temperatures likely in the upper 50s, so on Easter Sunday I think we're gonna be partly to mostly cloudy a stray shower or two cannot, be ruled out on Easter, Sunday so please bear that in mind, the, winds they've been a factor for us we have winds right now anywhere between 6, and 18. Miles per hour and the winds are going to stay elevated, for us here for the next couple of days so, on Good Friday we're, looking at temperatures around 73. Showers, and thunderstorms will develop Passover. Starts tomorrow at sunset showers. And thunderstorms will be around for that as well upper 50s on Saturday low, to mid 60's on Sunday, sunday, again looks to be even a little bit drier than Saturday and Saturday only some spotty showers will be around dry. On Monday then, we're going to have a few showers Tuesday, and Wednesday after, a cooler weekend temperatures are between 75, and 80 Monday through Wednesday of, next week Eric, all.
