Another violent storm

December 1, 2010 1:14:29 PM PST
The powerful storms of 2010 continued today. Heavy rains and strong winds, and it was dangerous. One person was killed in West Milford, New Jersey, when a tree fell on a car. There were trees in homes, and trees into power lines.

The wind was strong enough to set off car alarms, and, in the case of my daughter's school, fire alarms. Twice. It was a charming experience for the kids, evacuating the building in the rain. Twice.

Meteorologist Lee Goldberg said it would be heavy weather today, and he was right. He'll have a recap and his forecast, tonight at 11.

Also at 11, the big cuts in the Newark Police Dept. last night are now being echoed in the southern part of New Jersey. Camden, another cash-poor, crime-ridden city, says it's laying off half of its police officers and a third of its firefighters, while eliminating positions in every other City office. And here you thought the recession was ending.

We're also following the travails of one Charles Rangel, who is scheduled to appear in a well on the House floor to face a vote and possible censure tomorrow. We hear that today the long-time New York Congressman is asking his supporters to call the Capitol switchboard and urge their representatives to oppose any resolution of censure.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Scott Clark with the night's sports. I hope you can join Liz Cho and me, tonight at 11.
