Special Severe Weather Update-10:20 PM

The Tuscaloosa Airport has reported little rain today; however, we have received nearly an inch or more of rain over northern sections of Tuscaloosa County. Our weather watcher near the Tuscaloosa Airport reported just over a half inch of rain. The good news is that the severe weather threat is over for tonight but tomorrow we may have more heavy storms to deal with. Be sure to tune in to WUOA tonight as our station makes the switch to all digital at midnight. We are proud to be expanding our potential audience from 200,000 to over 2 Million. With that said, you can count on us to continue as West Alabama’s only true local TV station!
