Weather chaos hits the nation

Happy Friday, everyone!

Here's what we're working on for you this afternoon in the KLTV newsroom:

Another round of dangerous weather is sweeping across the south. Suspected tornadoes have touched down in parts of Alabama. It's the same area where an outbreak of tornadoes last April left more than 300 dead. Forecasters warned of severe thunderstorms with the threat of tornadoes crossing a region from southern Ohio through much of Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. KLTV's Bethany Moore has the latest details from this new round of deadly storms for you at 5.

We'll also show you a tornado video from our Raycom sister station in Evansville, Indiana, where, sadly, at least three people have been killed as a result of the disastrous weather conditions.

An embarrassing incident for NASA today; the space agency's inspector general admits 48 electronic devices have been lost or stolen in a two-year period.  We'll tell you  more about security lapses at NASA; join us for that at 5.

We'll also have Cedric Fletcher with us from Fat Catz; he'll show you a recipe for....well, you'll just have to tune in at 5 to see. We can tell you this much: it smells amazing in the studio!

Also, Gayle Helms from the Humane Society of East Texas will join us for Pet Project, bringing a cutie named Julian who needs a home!

At 6, we'll tell you about Longview city officials meeting with animal shelter marketing consultant Mike Arms, in hopes of helping the animal shelter euthanize less and adopt out more of its animals. Good news for animal lovers. Don't miss this story!

Also at 6, we'll discuss Texas Independence Day, and tell you what our Annette Falconer learned from East Texans about what it means for them.

Join us for all that and much more; we'll see you soon!
