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.

Escambia County leaders may temporarily stop permitting or re-permitting borrow pits.
They will hold a public hearing on the matter tomorrow. This would just be a temporary solution to a bigger problem.

County leaders want some time to figure out how to better regulate the sites like the ones on Rolling Hills road.

Some of the landfills have been issued citations by both the county and state.
But the operators insist their sites are still safe. "Would you buy a home, there are lots of homes...I would.  I know whats in here, I know we run a very environmental facility..."

Last summer the state approved a remedial action plan to address groundwater concerns at  Rolling Hills. 
Operators say the long term plan is to do away with the landfill altogether and transition to a green energy industrial park.Escambia leaders hold public hearing to discuss solution to Wedgewood landfill problem
