WCBI News at Ten - Thursday, July 11th, 2019

Thanks for joing us tonight - i'm quentin smith..

The mississippi highway patrol is investigating several wrecks near the blue springs toyota plant on i-22.

Shortly after 5 o'clock a union county deputy made a traffic stop east bound on i- 22.

As the deputy and the car he was stopping pulled onto the shoulder..

Several vehicles were involved in a collision.

Officers believe another wreck may have been caused by drivers trying to steer clear of debris in the road.

At least 7 vehicles... including an 18 wheeler... were involved in the wrecks..

Several people were taken to baptist hospital in new albany with what are believed to be non life threatening injuries.

East bound traffic was re routed to magnolia way while the wrecks were cleared.

Weather is not believed to have been a factor.... but not long after that storms began to move across the viewing area.

For the latest on those, we turn things over to chief meteorologist keith gibson for a first look at tonight's forecast... first look stinger first look summary: the remnants of tropical storm barry are expected to move through our area this weekend.

Between 2- 6?

Of rain could fall in addition to the threat of a few isolated tornadoes.

The elevated rain chance and cloud cover will bring temperatures down into the 80s and 70s.

Thursday night: evening showers and storms are state officials are also keeping a close eye on barry..

Courtney ann jackson has more on the latest developments in the state's response plan from mississippi emergency management headquarters ..

Mississippi emergency management director greg michel admits there are still a lot of variables with tropical storm barry.

"this is kind of a strang storm.

This system started on land, went out into the gulf, got out in that warm water.

Water in the gulf iof mexico is actually higher than it usally is this time of year.

So, it swam around out there for a couple of days.

And it's still showing signs of unpredictability."

But that doesn't change the fact that they're positioning resources closer to the first impact areas.

The already-water logged lower delta is of the most concern.

"the rain that will go ther will certainly accumulate more in the backwater area which is currently trapped because of the level of the mississippi river.

The concern is about the water coming back up and causing more damage to infrastructure that's already been previously damaged."

And don't assume that the idea of a tropical system means you're in the clear if you don't live along the coast.

"pretty much follow th mississippi river until it exits the state.

And the bands, particuarly on the eastern side, which is where we're going to be in mississippi, that's the dirty side they call it.

And that's where the majority of the rain and majority of the wind gusts are going to go."

While the exact details on barry are still being determined---michel suggests you don't wait around to plan ahead.

"make sure your evacuatio routes are not routes that are going to be flooded.

And always have that 3-5 days there aren't any current evacuation orders since the backwater area has already been evacuated.

And there are water rescue crews standing by if they are need.

A couple in lowndes county is accused of child neglect.

The man is still behind bars.

The mother has been released on bond, but the children are no longer in the home..

Our rylie livingston takes a look at how law enforcement handle cases like this..

Most parents can't imagine neglecting their child's basic needs.

But youth court judge lydia quarles says it happens more often then you might think.

"i cannot tell you th situations that these child protective services people see because they take pictures and they bring 'em back to court and you would not... it is very hard for me to believe."

"we get some not a lot than goodness it breaks your heart to see a child miss abuse or missed treated or anything like that i'm a softy when it comes to kids.

We go to every call with check every welfare concern that we get a call for to make sure that everything's okay."

And those calls make a difference.

Child protective services and law enforcement often rely on the community to spot child neglect cases.

"they know more about what' going on in their neighborhood out somewhere then maybe we would know and you've got a lot of young mothers and parents that work and sometimes unfortunately they leave kids at home by themselves unattended which is not safe and we need to know that."

From not going to school to not having food, or even clothes, at home, there are many levels of neglect..

"if you're not seeing tha they're in school that could be educational neglect.

That's probably the least neglectful thing is you don't get your child to school.

If you don't have suitable clothes if you don't have beds for your children, if you don't have food in the house, if it's a filthy environment."

When cps gets called, they go to investigate and develop a plan of action... "the first thing they do is t determine what is the threat to the child and fix that.

Cps can work with families informally and if that doesn't work then they can bring them to court."

Quarles says when you make a call to the cps hotline you can stay anonymous.

She encourages anyone with suspicions of neglect or abuse to call 1- 800-222-8000.

Stinger wx summary: the remnants of tropical storm barry are expected to move through our area this weekend.

Between 2- 6?

Of rain could fall in addition to the threat of a few isolated tornadoes.

The elevated rain chance and cloud cover will bring temperatures down into the 80s and 70s.

Thursday night: evening showers and storms are possible but they will tend to fade away by late evening.

Lows should be in the mid 70s with light wind continuing.

Friday: warm and humid with highs around 90.

The heat index will still be up to around 100.

There is a 50% chance of scattered showers and storms that will hopefully provide some relief to lucky locations.

Saturday- sunday: barry is currently expected to make landfall somewhere in the southwestern louisiana saturday and then slowly track to the north along the mississippi river valley.

If this track verifies, our area is going to be on the eastern side of the circulation center which means the potential for heavy rain and isolated tornadoes.

Latest model data as of thursday afternoon lost pressure from a line break causes a boil water notice in west point.

The notice is for about 100 people in the white station area, east of crosby corner, who are served by the city of west point.

Health officials suggest residents under the notice boil water for one minute before drinking it.

Stinger a mosquito - borne sickness makes its mississippi debut..

We find out more about that and staying safe on the water when we come back... welcome back... it's a favorite summer activity but it can also be deadly.... if you're planning on hitting the water in a boat or other personal watercraft, there are some things you need to know..

We find out more in tonight's health talk with baptist... hi.

I'm dr. lee richardson, an emergency room physician at baptist memorial hospital golden triangle.

Tonight we will be discussing how to stay safe using a boat or other personal watercraft.

More people die in boating accidents every year than in airplane crashes or train wrecks, but a little common sense can make boating both enjoyable and safe.

Alcohol and water do not mix.

One third of boating deaths are alcohol related.

Alcohol distorts our judgment no matter where we are - but that distortion is even greater on the water.

Because there are no road signs or lane markers on the water and the weather can be unpredictable, it's important to be able to think quickly and react well under pressure.

Weather - before boating, be sure that the weather conditions are safe and that you have updated weather information.

Personal floation devices - it's always a good idea for everyone on the boat to wear a coast guard approved life jacket, regardless of the size or speed of the boat and whether you're a good swimmer or not.

Stay in touch - before going out on a boat, let somebody on land know where you are going and about how long you will be out.

So, if you do get into trouble, someone will have an idea of where to look for you.

Jet skis - if you're using jet skis or personal watercraft, follow the same rules as you do for boating.

Also check the laws in your state.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist.

Wipe to vo the first case of west nile virus in the state is reported for the year.

Today, the mississippi department of health confirmed the first case had been found in smith county.

While symptoms of the infection are often mild including headaches and nausea, in rare cases it can cause encephalitis or meningitis.

In 20-18, there were 50 cases of west nile virus reported, but no deaths.

Most cases of the infection are reported from july to september.

Stinger 60 schools in 60 days checks in next with the nettleton tigers...more on how the tigers are ramping up the next stop on our 60 schools in 60 days excursion checks in with the nettleton tigers as the 18th stop, the tigers are coming off of a tough season head coach ken topps and his team are eager to get back to it on the gridiron billboard nat pop going into the 2019 season, the nettleton tigers want to start a new trend.

Coming off back to back 4-6 seasons, the tigers primary focus is to get over the hump.

"it's all about getting ove that hump.

You go into the season thinking one game at a time.

You can't help but look down the schedule but we have to work to get passed the slow starts we been having.

Our problem most games was coming out starting slow then having to fight back.

We just have to figure out coming out in that first quarter and win ball games."

"coach topps has brought tha up a lot.

It's about being comfortable being uncomfortable.

He's really pushed us.

I feel this summer we've done enough to get over the hump."

Youth will be key for the tigers.

Nettleton has to replace 13 seniors from last year's team giving the young guys an opportunity to step into impact roles.

"even though we lost a lot, w still have a lot from last year the young guys coming up from junior high.

Hopefully, we'll take the summer to get on it and have a great year."

"we're getting all these boy to come together.

We'll be straight because we're coming together as a team and as one."

"we have a lot of peopl stepping up working hard this summer so i think we'll be alright."

"a lot of those guy contributed a whole lot so you try to replace them with some younger guys and i think those young guys are stepping up to the plate right now."

It always helps a young team when the starting quarterback returns.

Senior leader graham gardner will play a major factor in the tigers' success.

"he's a senior.

He's only bee playing for 2 years.

Last year was his first year of football.

So i guess you can say he made some rookie mistakes.

Just to see how much he's grown.

How much more comfortable he's been in the offense this season.

I know things will be good for him moving forward."

Nettleton starts the season august 23rd on the road against bruce.
