Here's a look at what's coming up on Good Morning East Texas: President Barack Obama will be in Texas today for a memorial ceremony at Ft. Hood honoring those killed in last week's shooting. The president will also meet with some of the survivors and relatives of the victims.
Parts of the Gulf Coast are being pounded with heavy rain and strong wind this morning as Tropical Storm Ida moves ashore. Communities in Alabama and Florida are on alert.
An East Texan who police say called in a report of a murder is behind bars, but not for killing anyone. Police say he made up the homicide so officers would respond more quickly to his complaint about being assaulted.
Another quiet day is on tap for East Texas today. A cold front will move through the area but with limited moisture, only a few clouds are expected. Highs will remain above normal through the work week but morning lows will cool down to near normal levels by Thursday morning.
