FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


!!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!!!

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

MORE HEAT AND HUMIDITY

More heat and humidity are on the way today. In addition to the humidity that we feel, there will also be more moisture in place in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere, allowing for a few more clouds to form this afternoon. Again, a sea breeze will develop, keeping coastal areas in the mid 80s while inland areas reach the lower 90s.

The weekend features plenty of heat and humidity. A weak disturbance will move through the area late Saturday. It will lead to more cloud cover and could even bring a few isolated rain showers. Highs on Saturday will climb into the low 90s, with mid 80s along the coast.

Mother's Day also looks humid, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Again, a few isolated showers will be possible but most areas will stay dry.

Changes begin to arrive next week. A few isolated showers will be possible Monday, with highs in the upper 80s.

Better rain chances arrive Tuesday and Wednesday, with scattered showers developing and highs in the upper 80s.

There is some uncertainty as to how quickly the system will exit next week, and a few showers will be possible late week. Return to index of stories...

I really enjoy being able to work out with him

INSTRUCTOR KATHLEEN DONAHOE SAYS POSTNATAL FITNESS IS HEALTHY FOR ALL NEW MOMS.

Exercise post-baby is really important because it gets the mom back in shape and it is also great because it combats post-partum depression.

BUT DONAHOE TELLS WOMEN THAT EXERCISE ALONE WON'T MAKE PREGNANCY POUNDS DISAPPEAR.

Its not a quick fix. You want to do it in a healthy way, you want to make sure you're eating enough, particularly if you're breastfeeding. I think a slow approach is best.

FOR WOMEN WHO HAD A CONDITION DURING THEIR PREGNANCY LIKE GESTATIONAL DIABETES, OR FOR THOSE WHO HAD BEEN ON BED REST.

It's especially important for these women to get out and exercise after they have their baby.

BUT MOMS SHOULD CHECK WITH THEIR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY WORKOUT REGIMEN.

AS FOR SARAH, SHE CHERISHES THE TIME SHE GETS TO SPEND WITH BENJAMIN AT THE CLASSES.

He really has a lot of fun doing this and its fun for me to watch him enjoy it so much.

NIGERIA KIDNAPPINGS-PKG


THE BOKO HARAM KIDNAPPING OF HUNDREDS OF SCHOOLGIRLS HAS LEADERS ALL OVER THE WORLD LOOKING FOR A WAY TO FIND THE GIRLS AND STOP THE PROBLEM IN THE FUTURE.

"The images from Nigeria this week have captured the public's attention about extremism in faraway places, and it has also helped to focus the world's attention on Boko Haram a concern that we have been focused on for some period of time."

"It does not just require Nigeria, it requires external assistance and help."

"You've got to go into Cameroon. You've got to Niger. You've got to go to Chad. You've got to go to those surrounding areas to see if we can find out information about what has happened."

NIGERIAN PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN HAS NOW ACKNOWLEDGED OFFERS OF HELP FROM BRITAIN, FRANCE, CHINA, AND THE UNITED STATES AND STRESSED A COMMITMENT TO STOPPING BOKO HARAM.

"I believe the kidnap of these girls will be the beginning of the end of terror in Nigeria."

PARENTS OF SOME MISSING GIRLS HAVE SAID THE GOVERNMENT HASN'T BEEN DOING ENOUGH, BUT NIGERIAN OFFICIALS SAY OTHERWISE.

"It's not easy to convince them when their own loved ones are involved, but I'm telling you and I'm assuring you that the government have been doing all that it can and has intensified efforts to make sure that these girls are back."

.AND WITH U-S INTELLIGENCE THAT BOKO HARAM MAY HAVE SPLIT UP THE CAPTIVE GIRLS, TIME MAY BE RUNNING OUT.

"It's been now 24, 25 days since these girls were abducted, but we're going to move as quickly as possible at this point."

IT'S SOMETHING YOU THINK OF AS HEALTHY.KILLING GERMS AND DISINFECTING.BUT POLICE SAY IT COULD BE DEADLY.

KATE PABICH REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


DRINKING HAND SANITZER-PKG


S/ Lt. Dave McCaw/ Madison Police Dept. ***NOTE: MAJORITY OF SOT IS COVERED WITH VIDEO***

"People who abuse alcohol have found out that there's alcohol in it and chose to consume it to become intoxicated."

PUBLIC DOORS---ELEVATOR BUTTONS---AND RAILINGS---YOU CANT HELP BUT WANT TO DE-GERM ON THE WAY OUT.

S/ Lt. Dave McCaw/ Madison Police Dept. ***NOTE: SOT IS COVERED WITH VIDEO***

"Which is available in almost every bathroom."

BUT MORE AND MORE BUILDINGS ARE KEEPING THEIR STASH OF PURELL BEHIND LOCKED DOORS.

S/ Lt. Dave McCaw/ Madison Police Dept.:23 -:27

"It's a rock bottom situation where people who are doing this are truly at the bottom."

LIEUTENANT DAVE MCCAW SAYS IT'S A BIG PROBLEM DOWNTOWN, FOR PEOPLE WHO CANT AFFORD BOOZE.

S/ Lt. Dave McCaw/ Madison Police Dept.

"I think you could fairly say that daily we're dealing with someone who has been incapacitated by drinking or having medical issues because it's so thick and gooey."

HE SAYS, THEY'RE EITHER CUPPING THEIR HANDS AND DRINKING FROM THE DISPENSER, OR STEALING THE ENTIRE GEL PACKET TO DRINK AT THEIR LEASURE---IT'S A FREE BUT DANGEROUS WAY TO GET DRUNK.

S/ Jeffrey Lafferty/ Public Health of Madison & Dane County

"You can get a pretty big dose."

JEFFERY LAFFERTY WITH PUBLIC HEALTH SAYS THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF ALCOHOL--AND DRINKING ONE WITHOUT KNOWING--- IS LIKE PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE.

S/ Jeffrey Lafferty/ Public Health of Madison & Dane County 1:03 - 1:08

"It could lead to kidney and liver damage, could lead to damage in your nervous system and brain, and if ingested enough, it could be lethal."

AND HE SAYS HAND SANITIZER CAN BE ALMOST TWICE AS STRONG AS YOUR TYPICAL VODKA--- IN ALCOHOL SPEAK THATS 120 PROOF ON THE LOW END.

S/ Jeffrey Lafferty/ Public Health of Madison & Dane County

"Because the concentration is so high you're ingesting a poisoning dose before you start feeling that effect you're going for."

AND IF THAT DOESN'T KILL YOU, HE SAYS THE OTHER INGREDIENTS COULD.

S/ Jeffrey Lafferty/ Public Health of Madison & Dane County

"You also have fragrances and lots of other chemicals that can range from non toxic to toxic."

LIEUTENANT MCCAW SAYS IT'S BETTER TO REMOVE THEM AND SPARE SOMEONE THEIR LIFE, THAN SPARE TO SPARE SOMEONE A COLD.

S/ Lt. Dave McCaw/ Madison Police Dept.

PEOPLE ARE BEING ATTACKED OUTSIDE A BUSINESS.

MARCELINO BENITO SHOWS THE SCENE CAUGHT ON CAMERA. Return to index of stories...


ANGRY BIRD ATTACKS-PKG


"We got some kamikaze birds."

THOSE BIRDS BOMBED A TRUCKER NAMED BENNY.JUST WALKING BACK TO HIS RIG.

"You can see a bird swoop down."

"I took off my cap and started waving them away. And all of a sudden it was more than one bird."

First one bird, then in seconds, three others.

"And that's when he come running around. And he was running. I mean, he was running."

"Running for fear of his life."

AND THE BIRDS WERE CLOSE BEHIND.

"The more I tried to fight them off, the worse it got. I'm trying to figure out why-why they were after me."

"All of a sudden that bird hits him, and he just-poof. went flying."

BENNY WAS DOWN, BLEEDING AND UNCONSCIOUS.

"Open gash wounds, it was bloody, just awful."

HE ALSO LOST A TOOTH.

PEOPLE INSIDE THE STORE HEARD THE COMMOTION, RUSHED TO HELP THE MAN ON THE GROUND AND CALLED 911.

BUT NO ONE KNEW WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM, UNTIL THEY CHECKED THE VIDEO.

"Everybody was like show me that again, show me that again."

Reporter Standup: "It's a bizarre mystery. No one really knows why the birds attacked Benny. But one possible theory -- that baby bird. It's been in the parking lot for the last few days. It can't fly, and around us the birds just stand and watch."

IT'S CREEPY, LIKE A SCENE STRAIGHT OUT OF ALFRED HITCHCOCK'S "THE BIRDS".

AND THIS TALE GETS CREEPIER BECAUSE TODAY IT HAPPENED AGAIN.

"I felt.and there was a bird coming after my ass."

THIS TIME JUST ONE BIRD, ONE DIVE, NO INJURIES.

BUT.

"Attack of killer birds."

ALL THIS HAS PEOPLE AT THE CHROME SHOP WATCHING THE BIRDS JUST AS CLOSELY AS THEY'RE WATCHING THEM.

"I don't know whats going on with those birds."

AND AS FOR BENNY, HE'S OUT OF THE HOSPITAL AND BACK ON THE ROAD.

"They had to put some stitches in my face."

HOPING HE DOESN'T RUN INTO ANY MORE BIRDS. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WX WALL


!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

MORE HEAT AND HUMIDITY

More heat and humidity are on the way today. In addition to the humidity that we feel, there will also be more moisture in place in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere, allowing for a few more clouds to form this afternoon. Again, a sea breeze will develop, keeping coastal areas in the mid 80s while inland areas reach the lower 90s.

The weekend features plenty of heat and humidity. A weak disturbance will move through the area late Saturday. It will lead to more cloud cover and could even bring a few isolated rain showers. Highs on Saturday will climb into the low 90s, with mid 80s along the coast.

Mother's Day also looks humid, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Again, a few isolated showers will be possible but most areas will stay dry.

Changes begin to arrive next week. A few isolated showers will be possible Monday, with highs in the upper 80s.

Better rain chances arrive Tuesday and Wednesday, with scattered showers developing and highs in the upper 80s.

There is some uncertainty as to how quickly the system will exit next week, and a few showers will be possible late week. Return to index of stories...

IN THE RECORDING STERLING INDICATES HE MAY TAKE ON THE NBA.

"You can't force someone to sell property in America. I'm a lawyer. That's my opinion"

THE CONTROVERSY BEGAN LAST MONTH WHEN AN AUDIO RECORDING WAS RELEASED BY TMZ.

IT CONTAINED CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS MADE BY STERLING TO HIS MISTRESS CONCERNING HER RELATIONSHIP WITH NBA LEGEND MAGIC JOHNSON.

You can do anything, but don't put him on an Instragram for the world to for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don't bring him to my games. OK?

STERLING ISN'T THE ONLY ONE INSISTING HE WON'T GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT.

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


HYPERTENSION EFFECTS AS MANY AS 67 MILLION AMERICAN ADULTS.

AND IT TURNS OUT A LARGE NUMBER OF THOSE WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE CAN REDUCE IT'S IMPACT, BY SIMPLY TAKING CONTROL.

AMY OSHIER BREAKS DOWN THE STEPS IN OUR HEALTH MATTERS REPORT. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


HYPERTENSION. AS HEALTH CONDITIONS GO IT IS OFTEN MISUNDERSTOOD. BECAUSE IT DOESN'T MAKE YOU FEEL BAD, PEOPLE TEND TO OVERLOOK IT'S SERIOUSNESS.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

:38 Hypertension is often known as the silent killer because most patients have no symptoms at all.

DOCTORS TAKE HYPERTENSION VERY SERIOUS. IT CAN BE FATAL, LEADING TO HEART ATTACK AND STROKE. BUT YOU CAN TAKE STEPS TO CONTROL YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE. FIRST-BE INFORMED. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR NUMBERS.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

1:11 True hypertension is when the blood pressure is consistently 140/90.

:38 There's a term called pre-hypertension when the systolic pressure, the high number is between 121 and 139 and when the diastolic pressure, the lower number, is between 80 and 89.

THESE NUMBERS SERVE AS NOTICE THAT IT'S TIME TO CHANGE. STEP TWO- LOOK AT YOUR LIFESTYLE.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

1:24 Asking patients to lose weight, reduce salt in their diet, reduce alcohol intake all things that are very effective in lowering blood pressure and preventing them from needing medicines.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Step three may seem like a no-brainer, but it's not. Getting blood pressure under control may require medication. If your doctor advises it, it's important patients to stick to the program.

DR. GARY GOFORTH/FAMILY PRACTICE

RUNS:

6:11: When they've got severe or stage two hypertension then we generally will start with at least two drugs and add to that to control pressure. 5:33 However, if they make major lifestyle changes it's possible that they lower their blood pressure and they get off medicine.

GENERALLY SPEAKING, HYPERTENSION IS A LIFELONG ILLNESS. BUT FOLLOWING THESE STEPS HELPS YOU CONTROL THE DISEASE. SO IT DOESN'T CONTROL YOU. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
