LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT: A Flash Flood Watch is in effect Saturday morning through Sunday morning at 8AM for the Valley, Smokies, and NE TN, including Knoxville. Heavy rainfall at times on Saturday, plus run-off from the mountains, can lead to flooding issues. TADD - turn around, don't drown. Assume high water on a road is not passable.
A new half a million dollar grant will help keep kids out of trouble and off the streets.
The cash is going towards after school activities throughout schools in Knox County.
The students won't just do homework and study - they'll get a chance to take fieldtrips.
