Good afternoon!

This is Sara Diamond in the News Channel 11 newsroom.  

We’re working several stories you’ll see on today’s newscasts.  Here’s a sneak peek…

Greene County’s EMS director is under fire after a commissioner asks him to resign.  We’ll have an update on the evaluation to assess the department’s efficiency.

A Community Watchdog investigation found more than 200 untested rape kits sitting in evidence rooms in the Tri-Cities.  Advocates say the lack of action could be slowing down efforts to track down serial rapists.

And, a huge construction project will cause a big traffic tie-up on Interstate 26.  We’ll show you how to avoid getting caught in the mess.

Those stories, plus you’re Storm Team 11 forecast, and the day’s sports news.

Join us today, beginning at 5pm!
