  • Search crews have found the body of a Montana teen who vanished on New Year’s Day, deputies said. According to USA Today, 16-year-old Selena Not Afraid was found dead near an Interstate 90 rest area Monday morning, weeks after she disappeared while traveling from Billings to Hardin after a New Year’s Eve party.

  • Officials have euthanized a mountain lion that attacked a toddler on a trail at a California park, Orange County officials said. According to CNN and the Desert Sun, the attack happened after 4 p.m. local time Monday as a family visited Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park. “The mountain lion came out of somewhere and grabbed the 3-year-old by the neck and dragged him a short distance,” Capt. Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority told the Desert Sun. The child’s father then sprang into action, hurling a backpack at the mountain lion, Bommarito said. The animal set the boy free and went for the backpack before climbing a tree, the outlets reported. After the family fled to safety, the boy was treated at a hospital, authorities said. Orange County deputies said the boy is “OK,” the Desert Sun reported. Officials euthanized the cougar with permission from the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, the outlets reported.

  • A man has been arrested for causing a crash that killed a local father in September 2018.  Florida Highway Patrol and Nassau County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 32-year-old Brian Holtkamp on Friday.  Troopers posted a photo of Holtkamp as he was put into a the back of a patrol car.  He’s charged with DUI manslaughter. FHP says Holtkamp was driving north on U.S. 17 north of Bruney Road in Yulee, when he drove into the other lane and collided head-on with another vehicle.The passenger in that car, 37-year-old Justin Cribb, died. He left behind a 13-year-old son.  Cribb’s mother told Action News Jax his family misses him terribly.  The driver was seriously hurt in the crash.   According to FHP, Holtkamp tested positive for drugs, including meth.

  • With chilly temperatures this morning in the 30’s, inland communities are under a freeze warning until 10 am.   Action News Jax Meteorologist Corey Simma says temperatures this afternoon only climb to the upper 40's to near 50 degrees. And it will be breezy so it feels colder. Expect a widespread freeze on Wednesday morning, and a hard freeze well inland, with another day in the 50's. Then a gradual warming trend will arrive to end the week.  Friday’s high temperature will be in the low 70’s but with widely scattered afternoon showers.

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.
