Bombing One Week Later
This afternoon marks one week since two bombs went off at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 180. There'll be a moment of silence today at 2:50 p.m., the time the first bomb exploded.
Suspect Can't Speak
Meanwhile, authorities are waiting to question the widow of bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed Friday while trying to get away from police. His 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar was shot in the throat and can't speak.
There will be increased security at Henderson County High School this morning. That comes after police arrested 20-year-old Brenden Mathis, for allegedly making threats against the school. Nicole is live with the details.
Work is scheduled for the Twin Bridges, the Blue Bridge in Owensboro, and the Wabash Memorial Toll Bridge in Posey County. We'll let you know how all of those projects may impact your commute this morning.
Temperatures will move back into the 70's today and stay there through the middle of the week. Thunderstorm chances will increase on Tuesday afternoon and continue through early Wednesday.
And Erin Meyer is in for Beth today, so enjoy your Earth Day and we'll see you on Sunrise.
