Irma Continues To Weaken, Metrobus Driver Caught Reading Paper

Irma Continues To Weaken

Tropical Storm Irma is continuing to march north today and cross the eastern Florida Panhandle into southern Georgia before heading into Alabama. Florida first-responders are searching for casualties and trying to assess the extent of the damage after yesterday’s raging waters and triple-digit winds slammed into the state. Irma is blamed for at least three deaths across the Sunshine State and nearly six-million customers in Florida are without power today. Florida Power and Light officials have thousands of workers in the field to help restore power as soon as possible in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

TX Police To Release More Information On Eight Deaths

More information is on the way about a North Texas shooting that left eight people dead. Plano police have not released a lot of information about last night’s murders only saying the suspect killed seven adults, before being shot to death by an officer. Two other adults are hospitalized in critical condition. Neighbors say there was a Dallas Cowboys watch party going on before the killings happened, although investigators haven’t confirmed it. No identities have been released.

Metrobus Driver Caught Reading Paper

A Metrobus driver is suspended after being caught reading while on the job. On Friday, a passenger posted a video of the driver operating an F6 bus while apparently looking over a newspaper in his lap. Metro officials looked into the incident, identified the driver, and placed him on paid leave over the weekend. There’s no word on if further action will be taken.
