An explosion sent 4 people to the hospital in Jeff Davis County Tuesday afternoon. Emergency workers say the explosion happened at Hazlehurst Wood Pellets on Hulett Wooten Farms Road in Jeff Davis County. Crews from multiple agencies from surrounding Counties were called in to help.

Emergency personnel at the scene say that two people were airlifted from Jeff Davis Hospital to the Augusta Burn Center.

Firefighters at the scene say these fires are very hard to extinguish because of the location but they are trying to get the water directly on the fire.

Overview:
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms developing along a weak surface trough of low pressure that is situated over the Bahamas. Computer model guidance suggests that these thunderstorms will move slowly northward and low pressure will gradually organize over the Gulf Stream waters well offshore of the northeast Florida and southeast Georgia coasts on Wednesday or Thursday, possibly acquiring subtropical or even tropical characteristics late this week if this potential low pressure center remains over the warmer Gulf Stream waters. A majority of the longer-term computer guidance suggests that weak steering currents will prevail over the southeastern United States and the western Atlantic Ocean late this week through the upcoming weekend, which could result in a decrease in northward motion of this potential subtropical/tropical system near the Carolinas.


Local Impacts:
If current computer model guidance is correct, then this developing low pressure center would remain over the Atlantic waters well offshore of northeast Florida and southeast Georgia through Thursday. The main hazard would be an increasing threat (possibly high risk) for rip currents at area beaches and small craft advisory conditions in the offshore waters beyond 20 nautical miles, mainly due to seas of 7 to 9 feet, with occasional seas up to 11 feet, through Thursday. If low pressure organizes more quickly than anticipated, then there could be a few high tide cycles that would create minor beach erosion through late Wednesday before winds become offshore and gradually decrease.

Confidence Level:

The National Hurricane Center is forecasting a low chance (20%) of subtropical or tropical formation during the next 48 hours, with a medium chance (40%) of subtropical or tropical formation through the next 5 days. The National Hurricane Center has changed the probabilities for its color-coded categories in the Tropical Weather Outlook for this season. These changes and all other product changes/updates are described (as well as attached to this email) at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/news/20150326_pa_2015seasonChanges.pdf

(THE BLAZE) When she saw protesters disrespecting the flag, she took matters into her own hands.

She didn’t let up even when the cops got involved.

Air Force veteran Michelle Manhart was detained — but not charged — in Georgia after an altercation in which she took a flag from Valdosta State University protesters who were stepping on it, the Valdosta Daily Times reported.

Video from the scene shows Manhart debating with the protesters as she clutches the tattered flag in her hands.

“This flag actually belongs to the entire United States,” Manhart asserts as the protesters argue that she stole their property.

On Monday, Jason Aldean was just a few signatures away from one of his new dream collaborators at the U.S. launch of the new Tidal streaming music service. At the end of the press announcement, Jason inked a contract with several stars including Beyoncé, Jay Z, Madonna, Kanye West, Jack White and Daft Punk.
One of the last stars to sign the declaration was Rihanna, whom Jason hopes to work with one day.
Here's what Jason had to say....
“I think there’s a ton of people I’d love to work with still you know, I mean, Rihanna or Adele or [Justin] Timberlake, I mean, any of those guys, I’m a huge fan of all them and really talented in their own way and what they do and what they bring to the table. I’d love to work with any of them.”

...Strong Storms Possible through Mid Evening...
 
Synopsis & Timing
We will have a potential of strong storms late this afternoon through mid-evening , mainly north of interstate 10 and mainly west of Georgia and Florida state route 301 across portions of the interior northeast Florida and interior Southeast Georgia.  A few strong storms will be possible as an upper level disturbance migrates from central Georgia this late morning to the coastal regions of Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida by mid evening.  Some of the stronger storms could produce small hail and gusty winds. ​
Scattered Thunderstorms may initially develop northwest of a line from Lakeland to Waycross to Baxley Georgia this mid-afternoon. The storms are expected to increase in areal coverage by late afternoon and spread south and east across into inland SE Georgia and the Suwannee River Valley of NE Florida. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to track to the east toward the coast this mid evening, but in a much more debilitated fashion.  


 
 

​

 
Storm Hazards:
A few strong storms are possible from late this afternoon through this mid evening where small hail and gusty winds will be possible in a few of the strong storms that develop. The main hazards from strong storms will be brief gusty winds of 40 to 50 mph and hail just shy of the size of quarters (particularly across the Suwannee Valley and interior Southeast Georgia).  Lightning and locally heavy rainfall can be expected in all thunderstorms. 
Please call us directly with any specific questions and/or concerns for your local area.

In Michigan, a 58-year-old man saw some warm brownies on the kitchen counter and dug in.

Unfortunately, the brownies ended up giving him stroke-like symptoms because they were pot brownies, baked by his 17-year-old daughter.

First responders arrived on the scene and brought him to a hospital.

It was there that he learned his daughter made the dessert from marijuana that she “got from a friend.”

The good news is the guy was released from the hospital and will recover fully.

The bad news is his daughter will probably face criminal charges for the weed.

Jason Aldean and Brittney Kerr tied the knot last week in Mexico and Jason…already has babies on the brain! Jason said "In the next couple of years, probably, we definitely want to have kids."
Jason who is dad to Keeley, 12, and Kendyl, 7, with ex-wife Jessica Ussery – also mentioned that his children are "pumped" about the idea of having a younger sibling. "They want a brother, so we'll see what we can do about that," he said. 

Jason has new single out on radio this week “Tonight Looks Good on You” listen to Z-94 to hear it!
