Heads up! Possible severe weather threat this week.HEADS UP! It’s been a while since we’ve had a severe weather threat in Florida. Ingredients are coming together for an intense squall line to develop over the eastern Gulf TUESDAY in advance of a strong cold front. Main threat will be damaging winds and perhaps a tornado. NOAA NWS Storm Prediction Center has Florida in an enhanced risk for severe weather. This definitely bears watching. I’ll keep you posted! ...

These poor parents, I can't believe that they made them leave. Thank you for taking good care of their babies.

Beautiful! God bless them. This is what makes this world beautiful is these wonderful people who give and care for others.

God is good


BUSTED: Police waited with a woman they say was the getaway driver for suspected thieves to come out of Costco. When they busted through the back door, officers were right there waiting. STORY: bit.ly/2GD8s38 ...

Dude never left coscto with anything. They never made it out of the building so how did this hold up in court


The video showed intent. Love it. Caught red handed.

Another successful take down by Trump. Give Trump all the bad credit might as well give him all the good credit

Pretty good bet this kind of bust will be ruled illegal in CA. Judge said cannot focus on gangs down there.

Good job officers. Thanks for,your see


"Police harassment" "police brutality" is what we're going to be hearing. Hahahaha

The best surprise was waiting outside! Enjoy your jail cells punks!

laws change in some states... but the registers are the other way ! what was there intent

BRIDGE COLLAPSE: Sen. Marco Rubio and others are in Miami with an update on the pedestrian bridge collapse at FIU. ...


Comment on Facebook

They all have the information in English first! Now they’re doing it in Spanish! People need to take a chill pill... it’s MIAMI.... mostly BILINGUAL SPEAKING...

So sad, people left their homes that day not thinking for a minute they’ll never return.... life is not guaranteed.... it can be gone in a split second... 🙏🏼😢💔

People are just jealous because they can't speak two languages. I think of bilingual people as gifted.

This bridge was going to be the first one that kind in the USA and how it was not well supervised and monitored. Im so sorry for you guys but this was a big mistake

The bridge was going to be the first one built with just one piece. It was going to be a pride for Miami. Now itsjust a nightmare and a big tragedy. 6 ppl died

What do you call someone who speaks 2 languages? Bilingual. What do you call one who speaks 3 languages? Trilingual. What do you call someone who not speaks one? American.

This is not about you, your language, your background, This is about the victims, and their families. so suck it up already with the language.

This was so preventable. I can't believe the road wasn't closed until this thing was completed. Thank God it wasn't open and full of walkers. The company that did this should be put out of business.

Why was traffic allowed under bridge while still working on the bridge.? Most times lands are blocked off or rerputed?

I am thankful that they take the time to care for every citizen...no matter the language. Everyone deserves dignity.

In a blink of your eye your life is changed forever. I tell my kids you need to stay Rapture Ready you never know when it's your time to go.

God Bless all our police and firemen, for their tireless work in this terrible situation!! Prayers for all families who lost loved on🙏🏽

Apparently, cracks were reportedly seen on the bridge and a Voicemail message was left regarding that but sadly, the message wasn’t heard until After this horrific tragedy.

So very sorry for the loss of these Souls. May their Families and Friends know Thoughts and Prayers are on the way too All.

Yes , but they were conducting stress tests, seems to me they should have blocked or rerouted traffic.

Breaks my heart! I’m terrified going under bridges now.

I hope they sue Florida and that company for killing those people! Condolences to the families..God bless! 😢🙏

Thank you for working so hard and working long hours to help these families find their loved ones. I'm sure it was a hard tough job. God bless you all.

Then talk about the problem that’s happening at this moment... why bring the gun issue here? And worst of all you made it as a sarcastic comment...

Kellie Padilla You know darn well that if the money that was wasted buying legal gun owners weapons would have been used to repair bridges this wouldn't have happened. Sorry you can't connect dots.

Lord, how sad for all those families mourning their loved ones... to think they left that day their homes with no return, because of something that could’ve been prevented! 🙏🏼😢

These contractors need arrested for involuntary slaughter! Prayers for families, friends and all those involved in rescues...God be with you all

My heart goes out to everybody who lost their life in this horrific accident. May God heal everyone affected by this tragedy.

When this first happened they said they were stress testing it and that it was finished a year before schedule

Not racist English was the first primary language here, you were required to know English to live here through legal immagration

In just one week, she went from homeless to having a home, all because of this inspiring organization. ❤️❤️❤️ bit.ly/2pfoau0 ...

Make sure you're helping the people directly. If you're donating clothes, don't give it to the organization, the people RARELY see it after requesting many times, even people who have soiled their clothes with their own waste are turned away by the very mean and uncaring staff at safe harbor. Many people are cold and denied blankets, so don't donate objects like those to the facility, give them to the people. Same with food. The people running the facilities in Pinellas should be arrested for unethical treatment of homeless people. It's very sad, what this news organization SHOULD DO, is go undercover as a homeless person at safe harbor, and BOOM..... not only write a story, but watch your name go Nationwide for uncovering the harsh truth of how the homeless are treated. The nicest homeless people are treated like complete GARBAGE, spoke to sarcastically, laughed at, screamed at, I'm talking about people who are just homeless.. not a drunk person or on drugs, just very much down on their luck. It's disgusting. They staff needs to be arrested.

Now she doesn't have to worry about having a job.

When you start helping homeless veterans, then tell me.

This is the best way to do it instead of i giving to some charity who takes 90% of the donations and pays the people running it $100K a year



May god bless you always

Thank God For a home nice

hahah I got scolded at the local store by the asian woman owner. i picked a second chance losing ticket that was at the top of trash can out of the can. She yelled no no no. I said ok. She continued to raise her voice, geez what a nut. No sign stating one could not pick up a losing scratch off. Anyway I commenced to buy some more tickets as usual, left and then won a few dollars. following day I went back to store she started yelling again and refused to honor my winning scratch off, although her husband standing with her took my winning tickets, then she started yellling again you dig in trash. It was amusing to say the least, she and her husband took my winning tickets ripped the bottom numbers off and thren handed them back to me. (no good now without the numbers!). I demanded they pay me the $5 dollars. after all they took the winning tickets. She starts yelling again you dig in trash and said it is where I got the winning tickets. Wow. they than finally coughed up my winning money probably because other customers were watching! Putnam Hall Florida store steer clear the woman is CRAZY in my opinion. many local people have complained about her.

I won $5000 on a $1.00 Monopoly scratch off ticket. The transmission had gone out on my car two days prior so it was a blessing.

Luck of the Irish doesn't seem to be in my future 😣 Spent so much $$$ on Lucky Money & have yet to win .

I finally won $100 on the new $30 ticket! This after spending $180 the other day on this ticket with no winner! Happy St. Pattys day to me! At least I get some green back! 😼😼😁

Fantasy 5! Going to win it one day!! Gotta believe! 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀

Winners have become very elusive. Almost completely done with these losing tickets, nothing on the 2nd chance drawing either. Been a dedicated player but all good things come to an end. I do better on the slots at the casino.

I won $20 on a $1 5X Cash lottery ticket. I Spent $10.00 to win $20, so I felt very lucky yesterday. Thank you.

I am hoping my $30 Florida 100X the Cash second chance tickets will bring this OBrien some Irish luck☘️☘️☘️

Happy birthday to my son & Happy St Patrick day! Pls give me luck today!
