Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Bell, Clay, Harlan, Jackson, Knox, Laurel, Leslie, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Wayne and Whitley County until 11 p.m. While the worst of the weather held off this afternoon, it looks like we will still see some strong storms later tonight, generally between 8 p.m. and midnight. These storms will likely feature strong winds and hail, with heavy rain and an isolated tornado (mainly possible in the Cumberland Valley/I-75 corridor) being the secondary threats. Keep it locked here for the latest.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Election night not only decided a new president, but it also may have added another state.
A 51st state? Maybe. Puerto Ricans have voted and 61 percent have voted for statehood. On the otherhand, 33 percent wanted to be sovereign free.
President Obama has already said he supports the will of the people, but in the end Congress would have to approve the non-binding referendum before the carribean island can officially become a state.
As of now the island is a U.S. territory. The people who live there are U.S. citizens, but they cannnot vote in presidential elections.
