The Latest News Headlines

  • Ahead of an approaching cold front, Northeast Florida saw a line of strong storms roll through. Some of those storms prompted severe thunderstorm warnings and a few tornado warnings from the National Weather Service of Jacksonville. The NWS does believe an EF-0 tornado did touch during in northern St. Johns County on Tuesday evening. At this time, WOKV has not received any reports of injuries, but there have been reports of damage and downed trees.
  • Following the recent passage of a $2.2 trillion economic stimulus measure to help families and businesses with the financial strain of the coronavirus pandemic, WOKV's Consumer Warrior Clark Howard is breaking down some of the finer details. Howard says adults making up to $75,000 a year will get a $1,200 check, while a married couple making up to $150,000 will get $2,400, with $500 payments per child.  STORY: Are you getting a stimulus check; how much will it be? Use this calculator to find out However, Howard says that $500 payment doesn't include every child.  'You will not get money for your teenager. So, once your teenager goes past 16, they're out of the picture for the $500,' explains Howard.  Howard says this $500 payment also does not apply to other types of dependents, like if you're an adult taking care of your elderly parents.  Get more consumer news and advice from Clark Howard in his latest on-demand podcasts by clicking HERE.
  • The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity is working hard to make sure people throughout the state who are unemployed are getting the assistance they need during the coronavirus pandemic. That means hiring more staff members to help people who are trying to apply for unemployment benefits. Executive Director Ken Lawson signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of Labor over the weekend to execute the CARES Act in Florida. Lawson says his staff is working hard to implement those resources to Floridians as soon as possible. The week before most businesses closed due to government orders, the Department of Economic Opportunity received 28,000 calls. Last week in just four days, they received 130,000 calls. That higher volume of calls is overwhelming the staff, but it looks like help is on the way. Anyone who calls right now should expect to wait on hold for upwards of an hour, but hopefully that wait time starts dropping soon. The Department of Economic Opportunity is hiring 100 people statewide to answer calls, walk people through the application process, and handle processing applications. Florida residents eligible for reemployment assistance include people quarantined by a medical professional or government agency, people who have been laid off or sent home without pay for an extended period of time or people caring for an immediate family member diagnosed with coronavirus. Any Floridian whose employment has been negatively impacted by the virus can get more information here.
  • Isolation and fear during the coronavirus pandemic can create the perfect storm for domestic abuse. Some experts say victims are like prisoners in their own homes during quarantine.  “We’re talking about a horrible situation. People who normally might be able to call us, reach out to us, stop at our outreach center or go to work and look online to find how they can get help are prisoners in their own home,” Hubbard House CEO Gail Patin, EdD, LCSW, said.  Anyone who needs help and can safely get away from their abuser is asked to call the Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-500-1119 or Hubbard House in Jacksonville at (904) 354-3114.
  • The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is searching for a suspect they say is wanted for solicitation to commit first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Police identify the suspect as 23-year-old Bobby Taylor.  If you've seen him or know where he is, you're urged to call JSO at (904) 630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.

Severe Weather and How We Report It

  • News 104.5 WOKV is committed to serving the NE Florida community with timely, accurate coverage when severe weather threatens.  To help better understand what our coverage sounds (and looks) like, here is an overview:What is that tone?   The severe weather alert tone, which sounds like, “ding-dong”, is activated when there is an active warned storm in the five county area (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns).  We only activate the tone during a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning to alert listeners that there is potentially dangerous weather in the area.  The tone plays every 90 seconds during programs and commercials (think of it like a crawl on your TV screen).  We recognize the tone can be distracting from normal programming, but we feel it is the best way to keep you aware of severe weather in the area without fully interrupting your favorite program.  Why are you interrupting Brian/Mark/Rush/Sean?  We take seriously and are committed to providing listeners with timely, accurate reports about severe weather so that they can take appropriate precautions to stay safe.  When a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning is issued in the NE Florida area (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns County) we intend to break in to programming to provide the warning details which include the current location of the storm, where it is moving, how fast it is moving, and the greatest threats it poses.  Our coverage includes updates from the First Alert Weather Team, led by Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh.  We also recognize the impact storms have on the roads and highways in our area, so the WOKV First Alert Traffic Center is a big part of our severe weather coverage. When there is an active severe thunderstorm warning in Duval County, First Alert Storm Center updates are more frequent and may be on the air for the duration of the warning. This continuous coverage should also be expected when there is a tornado warning for any county in the Jacksonville metro area.   What is severe weather vs. a typical storm? As defined by the National Weather Service, a severe thunderstorm warning is issued when radar indicates, or a trained weather spotter reports a thunderstorm producing hail one inch or larger in diameter and/or winds greater than 58 mph. Severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes with little or no advance warning. How can I report severe weather?  You frequently hear reporters and anchors ask for listeners to report what they are seeing. Those first-hand accounts can be valuable, both for the listening public, and also for the National Weather Service.  You can report severe weather in multiple ways: -Download the WOKV App (Free in the App or Google Play Store) and record an Open Mic.  Think of it like leaving a voice mail that we play back on the radio.  -Share photos on Twitter or Facebook @WOKVNews.  Use the #firstalertwx on Twitter.  -Email weather reports and photos to news@wokv.com. -During wall-to-wall severe weather updates, call in live reports to 855-765-1045.
