Weather Alert

Thunderstorms & Poor Drainage Flooding Possible Today

While an isolated instability shower will be possible this morning, the bigger concern is for the storms that develop during the afternoon. While the overall threat for severe weather appears relatively low, one or two storms could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly very heavy rain. If heavy rain persists, or if multiple storms move over the same area, then low lying areas, and poor drainage locations, could experience flooding. A second round of late night storms may be possible, but the rain should clear off to the East after midnight.

The Bottom Line : Another Phone Scam Warning

Updated: Friday, October 4 2013, 08:36 PM EDT
WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A Bottom Line Alert about a phone scam making the rounds.
   
The Washington County Sheriff's Office says they received reports of two separate suspicious phone calls Wednesday night, in which the caller posed as police.

In both cases, officials say the caller identified himself as "Detective Abraham" from an unknown police department - and the caller ID showed up as "V of G Police Department."
   
Police say the caller told whoever picked up the phone that they owed money, and that a warrant was out for their arrest.
   
This is very similar to other phone scams that CBS 6's Dori Marlin has warned about in the past.

The "real" officials tell Dori, they never collect money owed via phone - so if you get one of the calls, don't give out any money or personal information, and instead hang up immediately.
