Coming this afternoon on WLBT - - Jackson, MS

Coming this afternoon on WLBT

It's a Power Of Pink Thursday and I'm Howard Ballou with a look at some of the stories the WLBT news team is gathering for you.

An early morning high speed chase by Jackson police ends on I-20 in Jackson with a crash that claimed the life of one person and injured another. Find out what police say caused the incident and who was involved.

A burn ban is in effect for Rankin County after almost 50 wild fires in the past 10 days because of the dryer-than-normal September. We'll have an update.

We have live reports from our Power Of Pink campaign promoting breast cancer research and awareness.

Beautiful weather in the neighborhood but still no rain. Chief Meteorologist Barbie Bassett will take a look at our chances for the wet stuff in her First Alert Forecast.

Sports Director Rob Jay will have the latest on the search for a new Ole Miss mascot and he'll let us know what's cooking at the Viking Classic Golf Classic.

I would also like to wish reporter Monica Hernandez all the best in her new assignment with WWL in New Orleans. This was her last day with WLBT and we will miss her great work!

As always, you will see any breaking news first on WLBT.
