A look inside one man's 'Doomsday' bunker

Good afternoon, everyone! You've made it halfway through your week; hang in there.

Here are some of the stories we're working on this afternoon in our newsroom:

An interesting story during East Texas News at 4: a Utah man says his remote underground bunker filled with food, clothing, and weapons will help him survive the end of the world. We'll take a look inside the bunker this afternoon.

At 5, some good news for job seekers: Home Depot says it plans to add more than 80,000 temporary jobs before the spring. More on that, coming up.

And we'll have some pictures for you of the set-up of the bunker that an Alabama man used to hold a 5-year-old boy hostage. Authorities are continuing to search the underground bunker, and have actually found two bombs already. More at 5.

And at 6, we'll review the nuts and bolts of the big announcement from the U.S. Postal Service earlier today; how, when and why they plan to eliminate mail delivery on Saturday, how it will effect their business, and how it effects locals.

We'll also be joined Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto as he gives us the update on our ever-changing weather. Not sure whether to wear a raincoat or shorts tomorrow? Mark will let you know at 4, 5, and 6.

Join us for the livestream during all our shows this afternoon.  We're here for you!

We'll see you soon,

    Often times, African American history is only recognized during the month of February.  Founders of the Texas African American Museum felt their history slowly slipping away, now they are hoping to change that with the opening of the museum. "Some of the things I've seen in this little museum, I've not seen in history books, I've not seen online," visitor Cramoeya Cooper said. Though it may be small, the Texas African American Museum packs an exurbanite amount of inf...More >>
