With all this rain, you can expect some minor street flooding this morning on your commute, so use caution. Byron will tell us how much longer the rain will stick around coming up on Sunrise.

Massive Wildfire

We're following a developing story of a wildfire in the Smoky Mountains. The fire has damaged dozens of homes in Pigeon Forge and several more have been evacuated. We'll have updates at 5 and 6 on Sunrise.

Plane Accident

Authorities say two people aboard a private jet were killed when it crashed into three homes in South Bend, Indiana on Sunday. We'll have the latest on the crash at 5:30 and 6:30.

Final Word

We'll find out today if the control tower at the Owensboro-Daviess County Airport will be among those closing due to sequestration cuts. The FAA will make that announcement today. Alyssa is live in Owensboro to tell us what that could mean for the airport.

Tournament Time

The field is set for the NCAA tournament! We'll have a rundown of upcoming games this week including the Hoosiers.

Araceli is in for Dan this morning, and Chad is back in the house. Join us on Sunrise!
