Are you wearing your red today?

Happy Friday, friends. Here's some of what we're working on for you this afternoon in the KLTV newsroom:

Are you wearing your red today?  We are! And KLTV's Jennifer Hines had the privilege of joining hundreds of women today wearing bright, beautiful red for the annual Longview Go Red For Women luncheon, helping to raise awareness about the prevalence of heart disease among women. Join Jennifer at 5 for a look at the luncheon and the cause.

Also, you can go to to see lots of pictures from the event; you may see yourself or someone you know! Also, it is absolutely free for you to download our pictures. Print pictures to your heart's content; we'll never charge you!

Today, students at J.L. Everhart Elementary School in Longview began a new learning initiative. It's called "Learning for Limbs." KLTV's Lynn Mitchell will show you at 5 how this initiative is designed to teach kids about prosthetics, and those less fortunate than themselves, around the world.

Today our Melanie Torre visited the scene where 3-year old  Zoey Smith was found in Van Zandt County last night.  She had the opportunity to speak with some of the toddler's rescuers about the ordeal yesterday as they searched for the little one and ultimately found her. Join us for that at 6.

Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto tells us that we all need to be prepared for severe weather overnight tonight, which is the worst possible time for severe weather to occur, as most of us are sleeping soundly and not aware of what's going on outside. Have you signed up for StormTrackerThunderCall yet? This would be the perfect time! It could save your life or property, who knows?  It's the call before the storm!  Click here to activate it for yourself.
