Sunrise to Go: Monday, August 25

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

1: Heat: The heat and humidity stick around this week with highs remaining in the 90s for much of the week. The heat and humidity could allow an afternoon storm to pop up; however, the isolated storms will be few and far between, so most of the area will stay dry. Storm chances increase for the weekend as the high temperatures decrease to the 80s.

2: Unfinished: Dozens of University of Louisville students are angry and worried about their safety after trying to move into their off-campus apartments. Several students and parents contacted us, telling us their apartments weren't finished.

3: Ironman: As in all previous Ironman Triathlons, hundreds will fall short. The heat and humidity merely raise those odds. It's a tough end for those whose training began months ago, but what keeps many going is the challenge to best themselves and to honor their family members and friends who kept the faith.

4: Heat: Football players at a local high school had to tackle the extreme heat. Several of them and a coach were rushed to the hospital Saturday during the PRP versus Doss High School game. JCPS confirms a total of eight players and an assistant coach had to be taken to the hospital because of the unrelenting heat. They were released the same day.

5: Firefighters: It's the picture taken before a charity event went horribly wrong. Tyler Arterburn captured the moment firefighters doused Campbellsville University's marching band during an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. "It shows how dedicated firefighters are to this university that they would take time to help the university out with this," Arterburn said. Within minutes of posting a photo, Arterburn discovered the entire country saw it.

6: Crash: Two people have died and one person is in critical condition after a single-car crash in Shelby County Friday morning. According to the Shelby County Coroner's office, a Dodge van was traveling on Fisherville Road around 4:20 a.m. Aug. 22, when it overcorrected, leaving the roadway and hitting two trees. Michael Harvill, 36, of Spencer County was pronounced dead on the scene. Juliana Bradlau, 19, of Louisville was taken in an ambulance to University of Louisville Hospital where she died during surgery a few hours later. A third person was airlifted to University Hospital. That person was listed in critical condition.

7: Arrest: A former payroll employee for Shelby County Public Schools was arrested Friday for allegedly stealing $80,000 from the school system. Benita Anglin is charged with 8 counts of theft, 8 counts of unlawful access to a computer and 8 counts of identity theft.

8: Ambulance: One teenager was killed and two were injured when an ambulance struck them as they were riding bicycles in the median of U.S. 25 in Knox County. According to Kentucky State Police, dispatchers received a 911 call at about 9:55 p.m. on Saturday saying an ambulance was involved in a collision. Police say the ambulance was carrying a patient when it dropped off the roadway and hit the teens.

9: Firetruck: A parking lot built over the basement of a demolished building collapsed under the weight of a fire truck, opening a hole that swallowed the rear half of the truck. The truck, from the Summersville Fire Department, was in the parking lot of a car dealership around 1:30 p.m. Sunday when the pavement collapsed.

10: Royals: Wasn't the 2014 Kentucky Derby just three months ago? Already, the Kentucky Derby Festival is launching its search for members of the 2015 Royal Court. The self-nominating application process opens online on Monday, Aug. 25 at and runs through Oct. 10.
