STORMTRACK 3: Strong storms likely Thursday

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A cold front drops southward over our area Thursday and will initiate another round of rain and storms, this time with better coverage. These storms will develop in a warm, moist environment. That means some of these storms could become severe.

The main severe threats include small hail and gusty winds in excess of 40 mph. Most of the activity is diurnally induced and should quiet down with the loss of daytime heating.

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Hannah Connaway’s friend Claudene Williams says Connaway has opened her eyes and is communicating with friends and family. They say she was talking hoarsely, telling them she loves them and is happy to see them.

Witnesses say the 17-year-old girl’s boyfriend beat her so badly she had to have brain surgery and be put in a medically-induced coma. Her alleged attacker, Michael Hutton, 18, is still in jail under a $1 million bond. He denied our request for a jailhouse interview today.

Williams says Connaway seems confused but keeps on smiling.

A hospital spokeswoman says Connaway is in fair condition.

Eight sites added to, one saved from Most Threatened Historic Places list

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Historic Wilmington Foundation released its list of the Most Threatened Historic Places in our area today.

Bricks, two-lane roads, buildings and much more are on the ninth edition of the list.

Historic Wilmington Foundation Executive Director George Edwards says awareness is key to preserving these places. Awareness may be what made the list larger, but it has also helped to save some of these places.

Wilmington investment broker John Hinnant sees the importance in preserving the city’s culture. His client bid on and won the Murchison Building on N. Front Street in downtown Wilmington.

“It’s significantly important, because the marketing and public relations associated with historic preservation is often most heard when we lose important structures,” Hinnant said.

This is one of the first places on the list this year that will be saved, but Edwards hopes that awareness will help bring an end to these annual announcements.
