jose. where is it going? >> tell you what. it is still a minimal strength hurricane and it's kind of headed back to the coast now, the southeast coast. don't panic yet. it's forecast to stay offshore. i think it will. minimal threat hurricane through the weekend, probably even through next tuesday. now what does that mean for us? well, some rip currents are possible especially into tuesday and wednesday. we're still looking at a hurricane through tuesday and then tropical storm wednesday and right now it's forecast to pass just east of cape cod, man ticket and martha's vineyard -- man ticket and martha's vineyard, but -- nantucket and martha's vineyard, but by the time it gets here some rip currents. we have the rip current that moves from shore out to sea. no one can swim against it, not even the strongest swimmers. they're not very

amendment to the city charter that happened back in june. tuesday night only four of the seven voting council members voted yes. you got me? it's not clear what happens next. you can count on us to stay on top of it. tyler tessier sits behind bars tonight accused of murdering his pregnant girl friend, laura wallen taken her to a farm in montgomery county, shooting her in the back of the head and burying her in a shallow grave. wallen's family is in mourning and so, too are her students who adored her. investigators say tyler tessier led a double life dating wallen while engaged to another woman, even staying with her off and on at her home in damascus. court papers show wallen found out about the other woman and contacted her and days later she was dead.
