SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT & SUNDAY

It looks like some wet weather is headed our way tonight with the possibility of some severe storms overnight. A warm front is pushing north from the Gulf of Mexico into Northwest Florida as a storm system to the west of us moves in as well. Both look like theyll make for some showers with heavy rainfall possible at times. We also have the chance to see isolated storms close to the coast. Our chance for severe weather increases Sunday as the warm front tracks northeast. We could see strong thunderstorms, damaging winds, and we cant rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado. Some flooding could be possible due to the potential for heavy rainfall. Stay tuned to Channel 3 News for the latest updates.

CALIFORNIA  --  An outbreak on a west coast campus has health officials scrambling to contain the potentially deadly disease.

Meningitis is quickly spreading at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Four students coming down with a rare strain of the disease.
   
And one student with a case so bad he needed his legs amputated.
About five-hundred students have already been given antibiotics.
   
Now students on campus are being told to stay away from parties and social events to keep the outbreak from spreading.

Rule of Thumb // Just don't share bottles. // Try to avoid kissing new girls, things like that, just be safe."
   
Earlier this year eight students at Princeton were diagnosed with the same type of Meningitis.

They are about to start giving them a European vaccine that's not approved in the US by a special arrangement with the FDA.
