Good afternoon, everyone! How's your day going?

We're busily working on these and other stories for you in the newsroom this afternoon:

On East Texas News at 4, we have many new stories to share with you from around the country, but one in particular is sure to be a favorite. Jamie Carpenter lost his Basset hound, Ginger, and after months of searching, he gave up hope that he'd ever see her again. You won't believe their story of being reunited a decade later! We'll show you the video this afternoon.

At 5, Dr. Ed Dominguez will join us to discuss a mysterious SARS-like virus called Novel Coronavirus. Experts have warned that it's likely to make its way to the U.S., so we'll have Dr. Ed share with us what symptoms look like in this virus so you can be on the alert for your peace of mind.

And during the news at 6, KLTV's Shaley Sanders was on the scene with the National Weather Service surveying the area for storm damage from yesterday's thunderstorms and tornadoes. We'll show you how that weather system affected East Texas tonight.

Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto will join us at 4, 5, and 6 with the information you need to know about the next round of potentially severe weather, which may make its way into ETX on Wednesday night. Don't miss that important information!
