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

1: Advisory: We are under an AIR QUALITY ALERT for today, Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups. Today will be hazy, hot and humid with plenty of sunshine. A cold front approaches tomorrow bringing scattered storms to WAVE Country, mainly during the afternoon and evening. A severe weather outbreak is not expected tomorrow; however, a few storms may briefly reach severe limits with strong winds.

2: Chase: A man who led police on a chase across state lines was taken into custody Tuesday morning, according to MetroSafe. MetroSafe dispatchers said the chase began in Jeffersonville, Indiana and ended across the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky on Interstate 65 near Interstate 264/Watterson Expressway just before midnight.

3: Fire: A fire has caused damage to a restaurant in Old Louisville. A fire began around 3:40 Tuesday morning at Tavern Bar and Grill located on South 4th Street. Flames began in a dumpster in the back, but spread to the building. There is significant fire and water damage to the restaurant.

4: Bomb Threat: An Indiana man’s attorney claims his client was handcuffed and escorted from a poker table, questioned for hours, and accused of making a bomb threat at a casino. Now, the lawyer tells Horseshoe Southern Indiana Casino and the Indiana Gaming Commission the man intends to file a lawsuit.

5: Unaccompanied Minors: Louisville has seen cases of unaccompanied children before concerning countries like Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, but with a large Central American population in the area some agencies are planning ahead.

6: Fort Knox: The federal government has no plans to place Central American children into shelters at Fort Knox for now, even though Sen. Rand Paul sparked controversy Monday when he said otherwise. The U.S. Department of Defense put the Kentucky base on a list of possible sites to house a temporary shelter for the children, who fled their home countries and are in the U.S. illegally. But the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, which is in charge of the decision, crossed Fort Knox off the list.

7: Arrest: A southern Indiana man was arrested in New York State for the murder of a Louisville taxi driver. Miles Matthews, 27, was arrested Sunday morning two days after Adam Gregg's body was found dead in an Oldham County driveway. The Red Roof Inn on Preston Highway near Grade Lane is the believed to be the last location Gregg picked someone up Thursday afternoon. His body was discovered late Thursday night and police say his killer is now behind bars.
