Eyes on VA

Good Wednesday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

Get your umbrella ready, because we have some rain heading our way. Meteorologist Julia Weiden will let us know if there's any possibility of severe weather with this system, in her First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, Veterans Affairs hospitals across the country are facing scrutiny following allegations of concealing information on how long patients had to wait for life saving care at a VA hospital in Arizona. Now, congressional leaders are weighing-in on how the VA in Jackson is performing and where the hospital needs to improve. We'll have details of their findings on the AM Report.

Plus, the jaws of life are used to free the victim of an accident involving a car and two 18-wheelers on Highway 49 last night.

And, more than 200 people are dead after a coal mine in Turkey exploded. The ensuing fire has trapped many more people and we'll have the latest, coming up.

All those stories and more starts at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and have a great Wednesday.
