county on april 27th their trash and recycling pickup would be reduced to one day a week instead of the usual two or three times, to take effect may 2nd on a once a week tuesday through friday basis. the change in pickup service was designed to provide residents with just one trip to the curb a week. it was also find that most people weren't utilizing the twice a week pickup with people have been less trash now, and more recycling in recent years the county deemed it unnecessary to have two pickup days per weak. reducing the schedule would save the county money. however, several residents of prince george's county have contacted fox 5 and said their trash was never picked up last week. and here monday, after a weekend, they're still waiting. in carla's case, her trash hasn't been picked up in three weeks. it got so bad, she had to move her trash inside her garage. that move attracted mice to her maryland house. she says it's been an ongoing problem and with weeks of trash

u.s. >> if they won't pick up the trash, it doesn't matter how much you notify them. door hangers? that's annoying. >> i feel for them. >> more rain. >> i think showers for our morning commute. i have to tell you about the important story the dangerous story that was unfolding today in oklahoma. we were watching this at 5:00 and 6:00. this is what happened tonight in oklahoma. there was in particular a huge huge very damaging massive tornado on the ground went through the community of withinwood and connerville. cross crossed reinstate 35 t they were describing this not just a tornado warning but an emergency which is an had enhanced version of a warning. they were so concerned with the number of people going through reinstate 35 highly had populated area. this massive tornado w
colorado yesterday where i believe we had about 11 reports of tornados and it mostly went through rural areas but you can clearly see there was damage to some structures and some vehicles. but some of the video of those tornados just jaw dropping, and really very close up by some of the storm chasers, and there were a lot of chasers out tonight. all of these red circles indicate where a tornado touched down today and you can see southern oklahoma was hit hard. some of those moved up into nebraska as well as iowa and you can see the storms moving away. other tornado reports farther north into nebraska. the great damage appeared to be in oklahoma. they may be looking at a third day tomorrow. so i tell you all of that because the fact that we're so cool is preventing us from having severe weather outbreaks may and june typically the season but we've been running so cool with these days of light rain and northeast freezes. we're getting a bit of a pass on the early part of our severe weather season. that will continue tomorrow
be building, and we do building that they will be rain back in here for the morning commute. let's run you through the futurecast. 7:00, 8:00, allow a little extra time for morning commute. there will be red roadways and in these yellow areas there could be moderate rain around 8:00 in the morning, by noon, 1:00, a lot of it is pushed away. the afternoon should be drier but late in the evening, after, say, 8:00, we may see another round coming through, could be a round as late as 11:00 and we'll have to watch down here towards char lotsville to see if he were get another rumble of thunder down there,s this is happening because of a stalled frontal boundary we have to our south. the showery pattern is going to continue. tomorrow will be a little bit cooler. listen, we needy to warm up a little bit. the second half of the week, looks like it will feature warmer temperatures and looks like we can get back into the 70's. that doesn't mean we're off the hook with rain, but warmer. our best of storms this week appears to be on friday. looks like we'll have also a wa
70's, and that could promote not severe weather but just a good chance of storms coming through ahead of a frontal boundary that will be approaching. clearly, another unsettled week ahead. but at least it's not as cool as last week and the pattern hasn't changed a lot but the temperatures will change a little bit. we're going to call for a lot of clouds tomorrow. showers in the morning, a break in the fan, and maybe another round tomorrow evening and night. wednesday we should have more sunny breaks that helps us get up to about 72 degrees. but there could also be about a 30 percent chance of a shower. meanwhile, on the cool side today,s and temperatures at this hour mainly in the 50's to 60 degrees. not much will change. we will make sure you have that rain gear handy not for yourself but the kids at the busstop tomorrow morning 50 to 56, after school few showers as well i think it will be much wetter in the morning than afternoon. fox 5 accu weather seven-day forecast thursday 75, the drive the day this week is thursday.
