KTRE stepping up for weather coverage

Brad Hlozek is set up in the weather center and will be cutting in all night as needed as possible severe weather approaches the area. We have reporters assigned to different sites in the KTRE viewing area, ready to cover the storms as needed. They'll be calling in reports to the newsroom and we'll keep you updated of any storm damage as we learn it. What I'm trying to tell you is, we got you covered. Hopefully it will be a quiet night for all of us, but we'll be ready if that's not the case.

Now, what you can do is of course keep your TV on KTRE all night. We'll also provide up-to-the-minute reports at KTRE.com. And if your power goes out, you can turn to the free KTRE app on your smartphone, as well as the KTRE Weather app. These are all great tools and they could be a lifesaver.

Our thoughts and prayers have been with the city of Moore since yesterday. At 6, Leigha Hughes shows you how some East Texans are sending even more to Moore.

What would we do if an F5 set its sights on East Texas? Are we ready? Francesca Washington spoke to city leaders in Lufkin and Nacogdoches to find out what kind of plans are in place.

Stay safe tonight and stay with KTRE!
