  • Airbnb now lets you pay less up front for your rentalAirbnb now lets you pay less up front for your rental

    Airbnb is trying to make paying for trips more flexible. On Tuesday, the short-term rental startup launched a pay less up front option that lets users make a deposit on their trip when they book. Users can pay the full balance closer to the check-in date. In most cases, you’ll have to pay a 50% deposit when you book. Previously, you had to pay for the whole trip when you booked the reservation. The new payment option is available starting Tuesday on iOS, Android, mobile web and desktop. Airbnb tested the feature with select users and found that 40% of guests opted to pay less up front. The startup also found that the tool led to more bookings further in advance. But there’s a caveat: To use the feature, the total trip must cost $250 or more and be booked at least 14 days before the check-in date. The move follows several other recent updates to Airbnb’s platform. In November, the company announced it would let users split payments with up to 16 people. The new features are part of Airbnb’s larger efforts to attract more users. The company has also made a push to better serve disabled travelers. Last year, Airbnb acquired startup Accomable to help disabled travelers find more accessible-friendly rental options.

  • Danish inventor charged with murder of journalist Kim WallDanish inventor charged with murder of journalist Kim Wall

    A Danish inventor, Peter Madsen, has been charged with murdering the Swedish journalist Kim Wall on his submarine, prosecutors announced Tuesday. This photo shows allegedly Swedish journalist Kim Wall standing in the tower of the private submarine “UC3 Nautilus” on August 10, 2017 in Copenhagen Harbor. (Photo credit:  ANDERS VALDSTED/AFP/Getty Images) Madsen has been charged with premeditated murder in addition to dismemberment and “sexual relations other than intercourse of a particularly dangerous nature.” Wall’s dismembered body was found in the sea off the Danish coast after Wall visited Madsen on his vessel in August last year to interview him. Her headless torso washed up on August 21 on an island near Copenhagen. Her head and legs were found later. Madsen has previously denied killing her, saying her death was an accident. The submarine was found on August 11, about 15 hours after it had departed Copenhagen. Madsen was rescued from the sinking vessel and brought ashore, where he was picked up by police, but there was no trace of the missing journalist. Madsen was later arrested and held in custody on suspicion of killing Wall. The inventor originally claimed he had dropped Wall off on land on the night of August 10, according to a police statement. Madsen, who is scheduled to go on trial on March 8, could face a sentence ranging from five years to life if found guilty. Prosecutors said they were seeking a life sentence. Wall, a graduate of Columbia University and London School of Economics, was based between Beijing and New York. A talented writer, her work appeared in The New York Times, the Guardian and TIME, among publications. Her mother, Ingrid Wall, said her daughter “gave a voice to weak, vulnerable and marginalized people. It’s a voice this world needed for years to come, but that has now been silenced.” RELATED: Danish inventor admits dismembering journalist Kim Wall but denies murder Head, legs of missing journalist found by divers, police say Kim Wall case: Inventor denies murdering Swedish journalist Danish police: DNA from dismembered body matches missing journalist Police searching for missing journalist Kim Wall find headless torso in Copenhagen Missing journalist Kim Wall ‘died in an accident,’ submarine owner says Missing journalist not found in sunken submarine; builder she was interviewing changes story

  • Students take action after hearing couple’s honeymoon experienceStudents take action after hearing couple’s honeymoon experience

    At the Mount Airy Resort in the Poconos of Pennsylvania, reverend Gilbert Caldwell and his wife Grace are arriving for their second honeymoon. They were greeted warmly – a sharp contrast to their first visit -- 60 years earlier. Gilbert Caldwell and his wife Grace In 1957, they were married in North Carolina. Then drove 8 hours -- only to be turned back for being black. "First they pretended I didn’t have a reservation, where I actually brought a copy. And then of course they said, ‘But if we said yes, our guests would be very unhappy,'” Gilbert said. They had to stay at a black-owned hunting lodge instead. “Men with these big guns. Not what we were planning on,” said Grace. Prodded partly by that experience, Gil immersed himself in the civil rights movement -- working side by side with Martin Luther King. Now, he speaks about the movement – which is how he ended up at Bear Tavern Elementary in Titusville, New Jersey last year. He told the honeymoon story – as he ’d done a hundred times before -- but for whatever reason, this group of 5th graders really took it to heart. “At the end of the story I was like – that’s just terrible," one student said. “I feel like this is the worst thing that someone could do to someone,” another fifth grader said. Even months after the Caldwell’s visit, kids are still this effected. Which is why each 5th grader wrote a letter to Mount Airy. One said -- The Caldwells “…made me think about not only standing up for myself, but standing up for others and fixing mistakes that were made in the world.” In closing, the kids requested an all-expense-paid honeymoon redo – which they got. “It makes me feel really good inside because we know that even though we’re just kids, we made an impact on the world,” a student said. “It was really magnificent to know that kids cared that much,” Grace said. The original Mt. Airy was torn down years ago. The Caldwells went to a new building with new owners who were just so impressed with the kids they wanted to help make it right. Obviously, this does not make up for decades of racial injustice. But it’s a step, and a sign, that we can get there.

  • Japanese broadcaster apologizes after false North Korea missile alertJapanese broadcaster apologizes after false North Korea missile alert

    Japanese national broadcaster NHK issued an on-air apology Tuesday after issuing an alert incorrectly claiming that North Korea had launched a ballistic missile. The message, received by phone users with the NHK app installed on their devices, read: “NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: evacuate inside the building or underground. ” The broadcaster apologized for the error, adding “the news alert sent earlier about NK missile was a mistake. No government J alert was issued.” The mistake was corrected within minutes. The false alert came on the same day as the US and Canada planned to host talks in Vancouver over the crisis on the Korean Peninsula after a year of missile tests and threats from the North. The subject of sanctions on North Korea is expected to be on the agenda, as well as the country’s participation in next month’s Winter Olympics in South Korea. South Korea and Japan will participate in Tuesday’s talks, though North Korea’s largest trading partner, China, will not be present. Second false alert in days Tuesday’s false missile alert was the second in a matter of days. On Saturday, an emergency alert notification sent out to residents of Hawaii warning of an incoming “ballistic missile threat” turned out to be a false alarm. The error was blamed on an employee who “pushed the wrong button.” “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the emergency alert read. The warning went out on television and radio as well as cell phones, according to Hawaii Gov. David Ige, sparking panic amongst some residents. A second emergency alert was sent to phones in Hawaii 38 minutes after the initial message confirming the false alarm.

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia Beach lawmakers hope to revive plans to reshape a major part of the boardwalk at the oceanfront. City officials want to move forward with a project to build a new pier at 15th Street. The plan to build a new pier has been in the works for years. The project calls for a new pier to be built near the existing one, which currently sits near 15th Street. City Manager David Hansen has suggested turning it into an entertainment spot. The proposal also adds new parking close to Atlantic Avenue. The city says it would own the new pier, but did not say how it would pay for it. The city is hoping to get feedback about the proposal at a city council meeting Tuesday night. Residents can voice their opinions about the possible new development at 6 p.m. at city hall.

  • 1 person burned after house fire in Norfolk1 person burned after house fire in Norfolk

    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — One person was hurt after a house fire early Tuesday in Norfolk’s Park Place neighborhood. It happened just after 1 a.m. at a two story home on West 28th Street. Investigators say when crews arrived, they saw smoke and flames jumping from the roof.  They quickly tapped their hoses into the water line and started putting out the fire. Part of the roof collapsed before crews extinguished the flames. It took crews about an hour to get the fire under control. Paramedics took one person to the hospital for burns. That person has injuries considered not life-threatening injuries and is expected to be OK. Everyone who lived in the house got out safely. The battalion chief at the scene told our crew, the flames did spread to a house next door, causing some damage to the outside of that home. That damage was minor. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Credit: WAVY/LaVoy Harrell

  • Father mourns son who went missing on icy waters near JamestownFather mourns son who went missing on icy waters near Jamestown

    SURRY COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Kyle Englehart and Austin Savage went missing during a winter storm on January 3, after they left the Jamestown Yacht Basin bound for a duck blind. Nearly two weeks later, the search continues for the missing boaters, though Kyle’s father David is beginning to accept the worst. We met David Englehart at a Surry County marina outside the Surry Seafood Company, which has assisted in providing a staging area for the search and rescue, and now the search and recovery. He took us to the shores of Grays Creek. We walked along the shore for the length of three football fields. It was bitter cold, but a trip worth taking none the less to remember all that David has lost. The peaceful waters of Grays Creek that feed the James River, “the best I know my son came here that Wednesday night,” says David, who took us to a duck blind constructed by his son. It is here in tranquility that a father comes to mourn his lost son, “I took him into the woods,” David says while pausing to catch his emotion. He continues, “from age three he knew the woods, the best hunter I ever seen other than his grandfather.” David spent a lot of time with Kyle, whom he calls a modern day Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier. “He was smart, fishing, hunting, he loved the water, jet skied, boating, and he was going to be safe.” So David was not surprised when Kyle launched his 16-foot Jon boat at a James City County marina to travel directly across the James River to Grays Creek to fix up his duck blind in Surry County. But he did it while a winter storm was hitting. “My son loved what he was doing, and people ask me ‘why? why?’ I can answer that as his father. To answer the why part? He loved this river. He loved to duck hunt and shoot deer, to hunt and farm.” David says investigators claim Kyle and his friend Austin Savage were last seen around 11 p.m. on the water heading towards Hog Island on the evening of January 3. “It’s just baffling to me. Baffling. He was smart on the water. He knew how to drive that boat in all types of conditions,” David said. Then at 11:38 p.m., the last ping from Kyle’s phone was picked up on a cell tower. “We are destroyed. We are destroyed. I have never had my heart broke like this. In a million pieces if it is (true that he is dead).” In the grief, acceptance that fate has grabbed hold of his son, “As hard as it is I have accepted that and as time goes forward it’s perilous. If I feel helpless we are doing everything we can. The police and so many agencies are involved in this.” At night, father talks to his son as if he were there. “I say ‘son. It’s daddy. I can’t believe I can’t hear your voice one more time,’ ” David said . David then says, “Kyle looked up at me and said, ‘No big deal.’ He said, ‘call me back dad.’ That is what he said, ‘call me back dad,’ and that is something he would say to me, ‘call me back dad.’ ” You get a deep feeling that it’s God that will bring the Engleharts through. “God is going to give whatever we are suppose to get. I do believe in our creator Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.”

  • Local jeweler believes personal and family challenges make him a better candidate for CongressLocal jeweler believes personal and family challenges make him a better candidate for Congress

    NORFOLK, Va. - A local jeweler is being very open and honest about his life and why he wants to run for Congress. David Nygaard  is among several Democrats hoping to win a chance to  win the seat currently held by Republican Scott Taylor to represent the second congressional district. Nygaard sat down with News 3's Kurt Williams and shared why he's throwing his hat into the political ring. Kurt Williams: What was it that motivated you to run? David Nygaard: I'm tired of seeing things not working in Washington and not working locally. Williams: What do you want voters to know about David Nygaard? Nygaard: I'm the only candidate running that is currently on Obamacare and I'm passionate about defending healthcare. I'm likely the only candidate who has a son who's a felon who needs his rights restored, so I know what that means firsthand. And I am I am a single dad. I have a pre-existing condition. I'm caring for my father who's a retired Navy veteran. Williams: I mean you talk very openly about all the issues in your life: your bankruptcy, your marriage failing, now being openly gay, your son's felony record. You talk openly about all of that, do you anticipate that any of that will be used against you by your opponents? Nygaard: The truth is, that all of these experiences in my life really make me a stronger candidate, so if people want to throw mud at me, I've been completely open, honest and transparent regarding my life. So will it become an issue? Perhaps, but to be honest with you, I think it gives me a new perspective on life. It gives new perspective on how I can serve and gives me the ability to open up and be a better candidate and a better public servant. Williams: You were a Republican how long, would you say? Nygaard: I was a long-term Republican, but the Republicans have changed and life has changed me. Perhaps because of my former affiliation with the Republican party, when we get to the general election, I think I'll be a much stronger candidate to run in the second district as a Democrat, against an incumbent Republican.

  • VB dog kennel owner: proposed regulations ‘don’t get the job done’VB dog kennel owner: proposed regulations ‘don’t get the job done’

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — This month, Virginia’s General Assembly looks at regulations for dog kennels. It’s the result of a tragic summer in Newport News, where two dogs died after stays at the same boarding facility. However, one local kennel owner told 10 On Your Side the current bills do more harm than good. Dogs have always had a special place in Maria and Patrick Nolan’s lives. After their service in the Navy, it made sense to take over Bayside Kennels in Virginia Beach. “The opportunity came up to buy it and we jumped at it,” Patrick Nolan said. Last summer, when an Australian Shepard named Fenway died after a stay at Newport News kennel, it hit close to home. “When we look at the circumstances of Fenway’s passing, we say inexcusable,” Nolan said. Nolan said the tragedy brought up serious kennel concerns. “When you’ve got a dog that is unsupervised with other dogs, and that has got its collars on (that’s bad),” Nolan said. Nolan said the incident is a black eye for the dog day care community. He watched as the General Assembly crafted legislation that should better regulate boarding facilities. But Nolan doesn’t think the two bills get the job done. “HB 79 doesn’t address the training or certification of the group play supervisors at all,” Nolan explained. That particular bill, crafted by delegate David Yancey, divides play groups of dogs by size. Nolan said that will force kennels to charge more. ”You’re talking about having day care bills that are over $8,000, potentially based on the size of your dog,” he said. Nolan thinks it will force some kennels to close. So we asked him: What do you want to see in Virginia kennel regulations? He said first; give more money to animal control to enforce current laws. “If we are really talking about doing something that’s going to be beneficial to the animal community and pet owners, then something comprehensive needs to be drafted,” he said. The Nolans love their work and the dogs they care for, but they feel the new laws could create unforeseen consequences.

  • Local organizations hold Day of Service in honor of MLKLocal organizations hold Day of Service in honor of MLK

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — For some Hampton Roads residents, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. took form in the shape of volunteer work. The volunteers were out working all across southeastern Newport News on Monday.  For them, it was the perfect way to honor the legacy of Dr. King: with a tangible answer to his question of “what are you doing for others?” It was a day on, not a day off. “What we’re doing here is trying to make an impact in southeast Newport News,” said Rev. Charles Cheek, with the Peninsula Baptist Association. Putting words into action to honor Dr. King. Cheek said, “Dr. King was a man of motion. He was a man that wanted to engage the community.” Volunteers gathered Monday morning at Zion Baptist Church.  From there, they got to work. “I enjoy just getting to know other people that are out here wanting to love on this community,” said volunteer Christina Porter.  It was her second year joining the Peninsula Baptist Association for their annual day of service. Porter said, “I want to be part of bringing change and bringing restoration to this community that needs hope and needs love.”  She worked to rebuild the community garden at Marshall Early Learning Center, joined by volunteers from “The Mission Continues.” “We’re focusing on the core values of Dr. Martin Luther King of education, selflessness,” said Renee Foster, with The Mission Continues. The veterans organization teamed up with the Peninsula Baptist Association to make some changes to the school, like a new reading loft and a sensory room. Foster said, “Service is what brings the community together as a whole, you have to be willing to give back and put in an effort into your community to make your community better, and that’s done through service.” Other volunteers worked at “Operation Breaking Through,” while another group went door-to-door, meeting people in the nearby neighborhoods. “We’re hoping people are not seeing it as an event, but seeing it as a movement, a change in the community,” said Cheek. They are making steps toward making change, while honoring the legacy of Dr. King.

  • Two shootings on area interstates, both unprovoked, under investigationTwo shootings on area interstates, both unprovoked, under investigation

    HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — Two separate interstate shootings that happened within hours of each other have Virginia State Police scrambling to find the suspects. At this time, there’s no suspect information related to either case, but officers do believe the two shootings are unrelated. What’s unusual is that both shootings were unprovoked, according to police. There was no altercation beforehand, or reports of road rage leading up to either incident. The first shooting happened just before 8 p.m. Sunday night in Newport News on an entrance ramp leading north onto I-664 from Chestnut Avenue. jQuery(function( $ ){ map = new google.maps.Map( document.getElementById( "lin-map-1" ), { center: new google.maps.LatLng( 36.999190043948, -76.408343045972 ), zoom: parseFloat( 14 ), mapTypeControlOptions: { style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.DROPDOWN_MENU } }); }); Police say three people had just left a supermarket in a minivan and were merging onto I-664 when they heard multiple gunshots. No one inside the minivan could tell where the gunshots came from, but one of them was shot. The victim, a 40-year-old man, was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt, and a search of the area didn’t reveal any suspects. Then, just as VSP officers finished clearing the scene of that shooting, they were called in reference to another interstate shooting in the area, this time in Virginia Beach. That shooting happened just before 2:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-264, about a half mile east of Newtown Road. Police say a Chevrolet Malibu had just passed Witchduck Road heading west on I-264 when an unknown vehicle pulled up alongside. Someone inside the vehicle then began shooting at the Malibu. jQuery(function( $ ){ map = new google.maps.Map( document.getElementById( "lin-map-2" ), { center: new google.maps.LatLng( 36.845061246855, -76.182973232263 ), zoom: parseFloat( 15 ), mapTypeControlOptions: { style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.DROPDOWN_MENU } }); }); A 21-year-old woman in the back seat was struck by the gunfire, but she’s expected to be OK after sustaining non life-threatening injuries. She was taken to the hospital, and no other passengers in the Malibu were injured. From Newport News to Virginia Beach, drivers are on edge. “I’m very concerned about people out here shooting people random,” said Bruce Spratley of Newport News. “Because I have kids. I wouldn’t want somebody driving past me trying to shoot at me,” said Tameka Calloway of Virginia Beach. Agents are asking anyone with information regarding either crime to contact the Virginia State Police at 757-424-6800 or #77 on a cellular phone. Tips can also be sent in by email to questions@vsp.virginia.gov.

  • Not in our waters: Kaine hears from local leaders on offshore drillingNot in our waters: Kaine hears from local leaders on offshore drilling

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — “No upside” and “unconscionable” were just two of the comments Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) heard Monday morning at a meeting regarding the possibility of offshore drilling off the Virginia coast. The Trump administration wants to expand offshore exploration and drilling in virtually all waters off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, however Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced last week that he would grant Florida’s request for an exemption. Kaine wants the same for Virginia. Kaine met at the Hilton Garden Inn with leaders from local government, the military, tourism and environmental groups. All of the participants oppose offshore drilling. Two local military experts say all five service branches use our waters as a training range, so offshore oil platforms could have a devastating effect on our ability to maintain our military presence. “Any sort of a crimp or a compromise in that training is an adverse effect,” said Craig Quigley of the Hampton Roads Military Federal Facilities Alliance. Joe Bouchard is a homeland security consultant and former commanding officer of Naval Station Norfolk. Bouchard says if Virginia gets drilling while Florida has an exemption, Florida will use that leverage against Hampton Roads.  Bouchard says Florida has been trying to take away one of our carrier battle groups for years. “The economic loss from losing a carrier battle group greatly exceeds any conceivable economic gain from offshore drilling.” Representatives from the Virginia Aquarium warned against the potential damage to whales, turtles and other sea life. The city’s Revenue Commissioner Phil Kellam told Kaine that tourism accounts for more than $100 million each year, about a quarter of all tax revenue. Long time owner of the Breakers Resort, Jimmy Capps says he fears the unknown. “What happens if one of them bursts or has a leak? If it were to happen in the middle of our tourist season, it would be devastating.” Kaine left the meeting with his own opposition to drilling reinforced. “It just puts too much of what makes Hampton Roads work at risk to contemplate offshore drilling.” Virginia Congressman Rob Wittman (R-Montross) supports drilling as a means to boost jobs and promote energy independence. The US Interior Department will hold hearings in Richmond on January 17 and in Washington on February 22. Kaine says he will try to get two more hearings scheduled – one each for Virginia Beach and the Eastern Shore. The public comment period will last until March 9.

  • A dozen siblings found ‘starving,’ some chained inside California home after teen escapes: Sheriff A dozen siblings found ‘starving,’ some chained inside California home after teen escapes: Sheriff 

    PERRIS, Calif. – Two Southern California parents are being held on $9 million bail each after a horrific discovery at a residence in Perris over the weekend, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said Monday. David Allen Turpin, left, and Louise Anna Turpin, right, are seen in booking photos released by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. An investigation began after a 17-year-old girl “escaped” from her home in the 100 block of Muir Woods Road and called 911 early Sunday morning to report that her 12 brothers and sisters were being held captive by their parents, according to a sheriff’s news release. She alleged some of her siblings were bound in padlocked chains. Responding officers initially believed the “slightly emaciated” girl was only 10 years old until she provided her age. After interviewing the teen, investigators went to the residence and contacted her parents, identified as 56-year-old David Allen Turpin and 49-year-old Louise Anna Turpin, according to the release. Investigators discovered “several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings,” the release said. The parents could not provide a “logical” explanation for why the kids were restrained, investigators said. Authorities located what they thought were 12 children, but were “shocked” to find out that seven of them were adults. In all, the victims are between the ages of 2 and 29, the release stated. They looked to be malnourished and filthy, authorities said. The victims were taken to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Perris Station for interviews; they were provided food and drink after telling investigators they were “starving,” according to the release. The six children and seven adults were then transported to different hospitals for treatment. Their conditions were not immediately known. Both parents were detained while child and adult protectives services responded to assist in the investigation. After being interviewed, they were each booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center on suspicion of torture and child endangerment, the release said. The home where the discovery was made is on a cul-de-sac in residential area of Perris, about 60 miles east-southeast of downtown Los Angeles and 19 miles south-southeast from downtown Riverside. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is contracted to operated the Perris Police Department. Deputies assigned to both agencies responded. Anyone with information about the investigation is urged to call Master Investigator Tom Salisbury at the Perris Station by calling 951-210-1000, or via email at PerrisStation@RiversideSheriff.org.

  • Community supporting dog that was badly burned in fireCommunity supporting dog that was badly burned in fire

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A Norfolk family lost nearly everything in a fire last month. Everything except for their beloved pet. But the dog did not escape unharmed. It has severe burns to more than half its body.  Now the community is stepping up to help this dog get back on its feet. “Her burns were not as evident when she came in,” said Dr. Kimberly Key with Bay Beach Veterinary Hospital. Bella was burned in a house fire December 27 on Norfolk’s A Avenue.  Her owner is a single mom with five children. “She has second and third degree burns over the majority of her right side,” Key added. Animal control brought Bella to Bay Beach for care.  Vets knew that her owner wouldn’t be able to pay for care so they’ve been donating their services. “We are doing treatments on her every day,” Key said.  “She is so tolerant, so sweet.” Vets say the community support has been overwhelming.  Donations from strangers have helped offset the mounting bills. “We just wanted to do anything we could to help,” added Dr. Heather Brookshire with Animal Vision Center of Virginia. Animal Vision Center of Virginia has pitched in to fix Bella’s eyes. The heat left her eyes with ulcers, but it’s very treatable. “I think she has got a good chance,” Brookshire said.  “She is going to need a lot of continued therapy.” Bella is getting stronger every day and in a couple weeks might be able to go home.  No, she’s not a Phoenix, but she certainly appears to be rising from the ashes. “She’s extremely lucky to be alive,” Key added. Vets are still looking for donations for Bella’s care.  They say anyone interested in donating can call Bay Beach Veterinary Hospital at 757-340-3913.

    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) —  Winter’s tight grip on Hampton Roads this year is putting a squeeze on local homeless shelters. Local shelters have seen an increase in people coming into their facilities over the last month and they are running low on some supplies. The Union Mission alone has about 400 men, women and children staying in their shelters right now. Along with the challenges of feeding and housing that many people, the shelter is fighting the flu, which is spreading among those who’ve been cooped up together. “If you and I had a cold, we’d just open up our medicine cabinet or go to the drug store and get cough medicine, ibuprofen and Tylenol, things like that. Those are things people don’t think about with the homeless.” said Union Mission spokesperson, Linda Jones. The shelter could use things like alcohol free cough syrup and cough drops. They also need: – men’s underwear – women’s gloves – twin blankets – non-perishable food You can drop off donations at their facility at 121 E. Virginia Beach Blvd., Norfolk, or contact Union Mission for more information.

    HAMPTON ROADS, Va – Snow is back in the forecast after our area was blanketed in more than a foot of snow last week. According to a VDOT spokesperson, the entire snow budget of $5 million was used during the last storm. VDOT says they spare no expense when it comes to the safety on the roadways. To ensure that they can provide the same care the rest of the winter, they plan to borrow money from other parts of their maintenance budget so that they can keep the roads clear. VDOT says they are already fully restocked with sand, salt and other abrasions used to keep roads clear with this next round of winter weather. On Monday the agency held a conference call to talk about their plans for the upcoming forecast. Area stores are also preparing for more snow. Taylor’s Do It Yourself Center in Norfolk has restocked their shovel and salt inventory. Customer after customer came in to stock up themselves. Even though the forecast does not show a major amount of accumulation, area residents say they want to be prepared for whatever mother nature has in store.
