HOW HER LOVED ONES ARE MARKING THE ANNIVERSARY AND REMEMBERING HER TODAY. THIS IS WLWT NEWS FIVE, LEADING THE WAY, AND FIRST AT NOON. WE ARE CATCHING THE TAIL END OF BARREL TODAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US. I’M MEGAN MITCHELL AND I’M STEVEN ALBRITTON. THE SYSTEM BROUGHT SOME STORMS TO GREATER CINCINNATI OVERNIGHT AND IT’S STILL HAVING AN IMPACT NOW. DUKE ENERGY REPORTING ABOUT 1900 CUSTOMERS ARE CURRENTLY WITHOUT POWER. IT WAS DOWN TO ABOUT 100 AROUND 630 THIS MORNING. SO CLEARLY SOME THINGS THEY’RE WORKING ON OUT THERE. LET’S TALK TO METEOROLOGIST ALLISON ROGERS. YOU’VE BEEN WATCHING THIS FORECAST. YOU WERE HERE LIVE WITH KEVIN ALL NIGHT LONG WATCHING THESE STORMS ROLL IN. AND THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE LEFT. YEAH. AND SOME OF THOSE CAUSES TO SOME OF THE OUTAGES I WAS LOOKING AT THE MAP EARLIER SAYING THAT SOME TREE LIMBS HAVE COME DOWN. AND SO THAT’S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE’RE GOING TO SEE THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON AS THESE WINDS CONTINUE, IS THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME BROKEN TREE LIMBS. I DON’T ANTICIPATE ANY WINDS THAT ARE GOING TO BE INCREDIBLY STRONG, BUT STILL, WE COULD HAVE SOME GUSTS UP TO 30 40MPH AT TIMES THROUGH TODAY SO THAT CERTAINLY IS A POSSIBILITY THROUGH THE REST OF THE DAY. RIGHT NOW, WE DO ALSO STILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT RAINFALL KIND OF SPITTING RAIN OUT THERE FOR A COUPLE SPOTS SO FAR THIS AFTERNOON. WE’VE HAD THAT THROUGH A LOT OF THE MORNING HOURS. YOU CAN KIND OF SEE NOW AREAS THROUGHOUT CLERMONT COUNTY DEALING WITH A LITTLE BIT OF THAT LIGHT RAINFALL. WE ALSO HAVE SOME AREAS OF LIGHT RAIN OVER TOWARDS SOUTHEASTERN INDIANA AS WELL. SO A FEW AREAS OF SOME SPRINKLES FOR NEWTONSVILLE DOWN TO MOUNT ORAB AND SOME PORTIONS OF THE CINCINNATI METRO AS WELL DOWN TOWARD NORTHERN KENTUCKY. A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT RAINFALL NEAR HIGHLAND HEIGHTS RIGHT NOW, EAST SIDE TO ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OVER TOWARD TURPIN, AND THEN ON UP A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO NEWTOWN. HIGHWAY 50. THEY’RE DEALING WITH A LITTLE BIT OF THAT LIGHT RAINFALL. VERY SIMILAR STORY OVER TOWARDS SOUTHEASTERN INDIANA AND SOME PORTIONS OF NORTHERN KENTUCKY AS WELL AS WE GO THROUGH THE REST OF TODAY, WE ARE STILL GOING TO SEE GUSTY WINDS CONTINUING THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF YOUR DAY IN FACT, I DO THINK SOME OF THOSE WINDS COULD BE CLOSER TO ABOUT 2530, MAYBE EVEN STRONGER THAN THAT FOR THOSE GUSTS THIS AFTERNOON. SO COMING UP IN A LITTLE BIT, I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU WHAT WE’RE EXPECTING TO SEE AS WE GO THROUGH THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS, BECAUSE WE WILL START TO SEE SOME DRIER WEATHER. BUT WE ALSO HAVE SOME HEAT ON THE WAY FOR THE WEEKEND. I’LL SHOW YOU JUST HOW HOT IT’S GOING TO FEEL COMING UP. MEGAN. ALL RIGHT. ALLISON, THANK YOU. ONE FAMILY IS A LOT TO CLEAN UP TODAY AFTER THE REMNANTS OF BERYL BROUGHT A TREE DOWN RIGHT ON THEIR HOME. THIS IS ACTUALLY A LOOK AT THE DAMAGE OVERNIGHT. EUCLID ROAD IN COLUMBIA TOWNSHIP. AND THE HOMEOWNERS TELL US THAT THEIR 100 YEAR OLD OAK FELL, TEARING A HOLE IN THEIR ROOF. WOKE THEM UP RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. BUT FORTUNATELY, HERE, NO ONE WAS HURT. AND TEAMS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL BE ON THE GROUND IN INDIANA TODAY AFTER REPORTS OF A TORNADO SPAWNED BY BERYL’S REMNANTS. TAKE A LOOK. THE SUSPECTED TWISTER WAS CAPTURED ON THIS VIDEO NEAR A WAREHOUSE. THIS IS IN MOUNT VERNON, EAST OF EVANSVILLE. THE WAREHOUSE WAS EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED IN THE STORM. THE STORM ALSO LEFT BEHIND A TRAIL OF DESTRUCTION IN A NEIGHBORHOOD NEARBY. YOU CAN SEE HERE LOTS OF DOWNED TREES AND THE ROOF WAS PEELED AWAY IN SPOTS ON CERTAIN HOMES. AT LEAST 19 HOMES, AND SEVERAL OTHER BUILDINGS WERE DAMAGED AND NOT FAR FROM THERE, A TRAIN DERAILED. THIS HAPPENED LATE IN THE AFTERNOON. THE DERAILMENT CAUSED TRAFFIC DELAYS IN THAT AREA, PUSHED IT RIGHT OVER. NO ONE WAS HURT, THANKFULLY, BUT IT’S UNCLEAR IF THE DERAILMENT WAS CAUSED BY THAT STORM. I GOTTA GET YOU SOME BREAKING NEWS IN OUR COMMITMENT 2024 COVERAGE. ACTOR AND KENTUCKY NATIVE GEORGE CLOONEY IS NOW JOINING CALLS FOR PRESIDENT BIDEN TO STEP DOWN FROM THE REELECTION CAMPAIGN. YEAH, THE MOVIE STAR AND LIFELONG DEMOCRAT WRITING IN A NEW YORK TIMES OPINION PIECE TODAY THAT THE PARTY WILL LOSE THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE AND CONTROL OF CONGRESS WITH BIDEN ON THE TOP OF THE TICKET. CLOONEY HAS BEEN A LONGTIME SUPPORTER AND FUNDRAISER FOR BIDEN. THE PRESIDENT HAS PUSHED BACK ON CALLS TO STEP ASIDE AND ARGUED HE IS FIT FOR A SECOND TERM. SO HAPPENING RIGHT NOW AT 1202, IT’S BEEN A YEAR SINCE A NINE YEAR OLD GIRL WAS SHOT AND KILLED IN A DRIVE BY SHOOTING IN SILVERTON. TODAY, FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF DEMYA PICKENS BARTON ARE REMEMBERING HER AS THEY CONTINUE TO WAIT FOR JUSTICE TO BE SERVED. NEWS FIVE’S BRIAN HAMRICK JOINS US LIVE FROM DOWNTOWN, WHERE MAYA’S LOVED ONES ARE GATHERING NOW. BRIAN, I KNOW THERE’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF PINK OUT THERE TO HONOR HER. YEAH, THERE IS. YOU KNOW, THEY’RE CALLING THIS A MARCH FOR JUSTICE OR TRYING TO REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED. AND TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT THE JUSTICE SYSTEM KNOWS THAT THE FAMILIES HERE AND THEY’RE GOING TO KEEP PRESSURE ON THE SYSTEM. BUT THOSE WHEELS OF JUSTICE TURN VERY SLOWLY. SOME OF THE FOLKS HAVE JUST STARTED GATHERING HERE. THEY’RE WEARING PINK, UH, TO REMEMBER DEMYA BARTON PICKENS. SHE WAS SHOT TO DEATH. SHE WAS INSIDE HER GRANDMOTHER’S HOUSE ONE YEAR AGO TODAY, PLAINFIELD DRIVE, WHEN SOMEONE OPENED FIRE ON THE HOUSE. IT WAS A DRIVE BY STYLE SHOOTING. NOW, THREE MEN HAVE BEEN ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH THE CRIME. BUT AGAIN, JUSTICE TAKES ITS TIME AND EVEN A YEAR LATER, THERE ARE STILL QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED OUT THERE AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE. SO THERE WERE DOZENS OF SHOTS FIRED AT THE HOUSE. IT WAS A GRUESOME SCENE OUT THERE. SO WHAT WE HAVE ARE FOLKS THAT HAVE GATHERED TODAY, UH, TO MAYA’S FAMILY IS GOING TO BE OUT HERE SOME OTHER GROUPS STOP THE VIOLENCE. KINDS OF GROUPS ARE GOING TO BE OUT HERE. UH, THEY’RE GOING TO MARCH AROUND THE COURTHOUSE. THEY’RE GOING TO GO DOWN TO CENTRAL PARKWAY, COME BACK IN AND END UP AT THE JUSTICE CENTER AND AGAIN, THIS IS ALL ABOUT JUST TRYING TO KEEP THE MEMORY OF DEMYA BARTON PICKENS OUT THERE. THE NINE YEAR OLD, WHO WAS KILLED. AND TO KEEP PRESSURE AND TO MAKE SURE THOSE WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE ARE HELD RESPONSIBLE.
