9News Early Edition from Matt Williams: July 30, 2012 - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

Escapees learn whether they will face death penalty

 


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Remember the scene from the movie "Twister," where hundreds of little sensors were sucked up into the tornado to help better understand it? Could technology like that be used to help better understand a hurricane? Elizabeth Vowell gives you a look at the new weapon in our arsenal. And, you better clean off that dirty license plate of yours. If police can't see it, if it's obstructed somehow, a big ticket could be coming your way. Don't forget you can catch our 9Online webcasts three times throughout the day. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
