Power of 9: Operation Oklahoma

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

South Louisiana has a huge heart and we are counting on it again today. The Power of 9: Operation Oklahoma runs all day today and it can't work without you. We're collecting essentials for those hit hard by that massive tornado. All morning long, Lauren Westbrook and Graham Ulkins will be taking you live to drop off locations in the area, showing you how you can help. Just the smallest of things can make a big difference. Thank you so much in advance.

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.


High 91, Low 69
