Sunrise to Go: Monday, April 28

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

2: Tornado: Three years after a tornado devastated the Little Rock suburb of Vilonia, its residents found themselves huddling in the dark early Monday wondering how they would rebuild again after the most powerful tornado yet this year carved a path through their city and others nearby, killing at least 16 people.

3: Visitation: Visitation for the mother and daughter who were killed in Nelson County is Monday, April 28, starting at 8:30 a.m. Kathy Netherland, 48, was a beloved special education teacher at Bardstown Elementary. Samantha Netherland, 16, was a sophomore at Bardstown High.

Kamarion's 2-year-old sister and 3-month-old half brother there too. Neither one of them were hurt. Police didn't give any info about the gun, where it was, whether it was locked, or who it belongs to - questions the boy's family and friends also wanted answers to.
