DC Police Search For Young Girls, Serena Williams Fined, Keeping An Eye on Hurricane Florence

Three young girls missing

DC police are still trying to find three young girls that have not been seen since Sunday. Police say the children, all under the age of seven, were last seen with Tyana Dudley, mother of one of the girls, at a home in the 800 block of Division Avenue in Northeast. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.

Support for Serena Williams 

Male and female tour players have come to Serena Williams’ defense after her dust-up at the U.S. Open. Williams has now been fined $17,000 for losing her cool during her loss in the women’s Open final on Saturday.  The main controversy was after the chair umpire penalized Williams for verbally abusing him. Williams called him a thief. As a result, her opponent, Naomi Osaka, was awarded a free game. Williams contends a double standard exits, saying male players use much stronger language and are rarely penalized for it.

Hurricane Watch

The watch is on for Hurricane Florence and the DC-metro area could be hit with part of her force.
The forecast is that Florence will strengthen into a major hurricane and parts of our area will be on alert. Governor Ralph Northam has declared a state of emergency for Virginia. The now-Category Two storm is expected to make landfall on the southeastern portion of North Carolina late Thursday. Flooding would be the main issue in our area for Friday and/or Saturday. Flood watches and flood warnings are still in affect following the heavy rains this weekend.
