A LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT is in effect into Wednesday due repeated rainfall. A Flood Watch is in effect for our area until 7 AM Wednesday. Where there are more pauses in the rain, totals will be closer to 2 inches but some will receive at least 4 inches of rainfall total. Creeks and streams run high and areas with poor runoff could face flooding problems. Busy commute hours could face more slowdowns, with fog and standing water on roads as well.
Bandits are preying on pumpers who don't lock their car doors.
It's happening at a pump near you. Wonder what a slider is? Don't worry many folks we talked to didn't know either.
"The only thing I know is it's a hamburger," said one man.
Well sliders go in your cars while you're pumping gas and take your personal items.
"I think that's a shame but I think it has a lot to do with the economy," said one pumper.
When Local 8 News looked inside his car, we found his wife's wallet on the floor.
We caught another man pumping gas with his door wide open.
"Sometimes I leave the door open. Sometimes I leave it unlocked. A lot of times I forget," said Tom Walker.
During just 30 minutes at the gas station we spotted more than three people pumping gas, without pressing the locks.
