STORMTRACK 3: Beryl makes landfall over FL, will head our way Wednesday

Monday, May 28th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Beryl plowed into north Florida Sunday night, passing directly over Jacksonville as a strong Tropical Storm with winds up to 70 mph. 

Now, the storm is simply a tropical depression as it continues to make its way inland over Florida, slowly moving to the west. Beryl will gradually meander into southern Georgia through Tuesday. A cold front from the west will pick up the remnants of Beryl and accelerate the storm northward. This means we can expect whatever is left of Beryl to head our way by Wednesday morning. 

Here’s what we expect. For today and tomorrow, we’ll still see some sunshine across the area, but a few tropical rainbands will send showers and storms onshore from time to time. By Wednesday morning, we’ll experience a period of heavy rain, with some gusty (but not severe) winds. Moisture from Beryl will leave us quickly Wednesday afternoon, with some dry air building in. Dangerous rip currents will remain a concern at the beaches. 

There are currently no watches/warnings in effect for our area.

Stay tuned to WWAY for updates, and head to Hurricanes 101.

Woman charged for killing boyfriend with vehicle

Monday, May 28th, 2012

SUPPLY, NC (WWAY) — A domestic assault turned deadly when a woman hit her boyfriend with her vehicle in Brunswick County last night.

It happened in Supply just before 10 p.m. Brunswick County deputies arrived at 1913 Oxpen Road after they got a call that a man was hit by a car.

When they arrived at the scene, Michael Anthony Pate, 52, was underneath the vehicle. Julie Anne English, 48, was also on the scene, and was the driver of the vehicle that struck Pate, which was her boyfriend, in their driveway.

After investigating, deputies found that Pate had allegedly assaulted English, leaving a laceration on her face. English was transported to the Brunswick NOVANT Medical Center, where she was treated and released to detectives.

English is being charged with voluntary manslaughter, and is in jail under a $100,000 bond.
