Most of the weather news of late has been around the way too early and way too extreme heat dome in the West. But Tropical storm Claudette is sweeping the South and was particularly deadly in Alabama where eight children died in a highway crash. “The children who died Saturday were in a van for a home for abused or neglected children when it erupted in flames in the wreck along a wet Interstate 65 about 35 miles south of Montgomery. Butler County Coroner Wayne Garlock said multiple vehicles probably hydroplaned.”
