Good morning everyone!

Wow … talk about your weather event! Rain, rain, everywhere – with impassable roads in many locations. Ben tells me these flooding rains will continue to taper off, with some partial clearing tonight. Friday should be pretty dry, but don't get complacent. Ben is telling me the rain should return on Saturday, and he says flooding will be a huge threat into next week. He's got a lot to cover in the forecast, so be sure to tune in to his live, local forecast at noon. If you need information right now you can also find up-to-date weather HERE.

Most of the calls into our newsroom today have been about flooding, so we're out right now checking on different parts of our coverage area. We hope to show you some of the scenes we're capturing at noon. You can also access some of them HERE.

Also today, it's the start of a new year and a great time to get your fiscal health in order. Did you know you're entitled to a free credit report each year? We'll show you how to get it.

Plus, a couple worried when their cat escaped from a motor home during vacation. Well imagine their surprise when she showed up 190 miles later! 

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and if you must travel, be careful out there!
