The Latest News Headlines

  • A California police officer has died after a shooting in Sacramento, multiple news outlets reported late Wednesday. >> Read more trending news Check back for updates to this developing story.
  • Jacksonville Fire and Rescue says 32 residents are accounted for after a fire started at a nursing home in Mandarin.  Firefighters say the fire started in one of the wings and residents had to be evacuated. They were later moved into a different wing of the facility and the fire is now under control.  It’s not clear what sparked the fire and if there were any injuries. 
  • Months after an armed home invasion robbery in Fernandina Beach that injured two people, investigators say they've now arrested a third suspect in connection. The Fernandina Beach Police Department has announced the arrest of 24-year-old Cedrice Brown. They say he was taken into custody early Wednesday morning, not far from the University of North Carolina.  Police tell us when he was arrested he was in possession of two stolen guns and booked on various North Carolina charges. A hold has been placed on Brown to have him extradited to Florida, where he faces armed robbery and armed burglary charges.  Police say since the December 22, 2018, incident at a home on Manatee Avenue, they've determined that the robbery was pre-planned due to one of the suspects involved having knowledge of where certain items were.  At the time of the robbery, police 15 people were inside. The victims reported seeing several suspects wearing masks and carrying various weapons, rifles, handguns and knives.  Two people were injured during the robbery, after being hit in the head with guns.  WOKV told you that one suspect was arrested while attempting to flee. A second suspect was arrested at a later time.  Police say they're continuing to work on identifying the remaining suspects, who they believe are from outside the Nassau County-area.
  • Authorities arrested an 11th person Tuesday in connection with the ambush shooting last week of former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz in the Dominican Republic. >> Read more trending news  In a press briefing Wednesday evening, the Dominican Republic’s lead prosecutor said that Ortiz was not the target of a shooting.  Attorney General Jean Alain Rodríguez said the target was another man, dressed similarly to Ortiz, who was seated next to him the night of June 9. Rodríguez said the shooting was orchestrated by a member of Mexico’s Gulf Cartel, who remains on the run. He did not immediately describe a motive. An unidentified official told The Associated Press that Franklin Junior Merán was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of renting one of the cars used in the June 9 shooting in Santo Domingo. Ten other suspects have already been ordered to spend a year in preventive detention as the investigation continues, including the accused shooter. Authorities say they are looking for at least three other suspects, including the man they believe paid the hit men. Ortiz continued recovering Wednesday in the intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Ortiz’s wife, Tiffany Ortiz, said doctors upgraded Ortiz’s condition to good Tuesday. “We remain grateful to everyone who has helped David through this ordeal, both in the Dominican Republic and here in Boston,” Tiffany Ortiz said in a statement released by the Red Sox. “David’s journey to good health has been bolstered by the many expressions of love that have come to us from across the globe. Your support has lifted his spirits tremendously during this challenging time.” Authorities continue to investigate. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
  • A man said his fiancee put eye drops into his soft drink Saturday at their Rowan County home. >> Read more trending news  The man told authorities he confronted his fiancee, Jaymee Cruz, after he said he watched her put the drops in his Coca-Cola. He then locked himself and their baby in the bathroom and called 911. Deputies said when they arrived at the scene, Cruz at first denied putting eye drops in the drink, but later said she did it to make the man sick. Cruz said she got the idea from the movie 'Wedding Crashers' and did it because she wanted to move out of the home with their daughter, authorities said. Consuming eye drops is extremely dangerous and can be deadly. The main ingredient reduces redness in the eyes, but when ingested it can rapidly reach the blood and central nervous systems. It's not the first time a person has been accused of using eye drops to poison their significant other. Last year, York County investigators charged Lana Clayton in her husband’s death after she said she put eye drops in his water, WSOC-TV reported. Stephen Clayton’s toxicology report showed he had poisonous levels of the key ingredient in eye drops.

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.
