Sunrise to Go: Tuesday, September 2

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

1: Rain: A cold front is bringing heavy rain to parts of Wave Country. A few severe thunderstorm warnings are possible along the front as it shifts to the south throughout the morning. Heavy rain may cause localized flooding, in addition to winds to 60 mph and hundreds of lightning strikes. The big question remains with the afternoon forecast.

2:Big Squeeze: Starting today, the part of the Ohio River Bridges Project that's been nicknamed the Big Squeeze will force both northbound and southbound Interstate 65 to lose one lane each direction from the Kennedy Bridge to Brown's Station Way in southern Indiana. Congestion is expected to spread to Spaghetti Junction and beyond.

3: Cards: The University of Louisville Cardinals beat the Miami Hurricanes 31-13 in Louisville's Atlantic Coast Conference debut Monday. The Cards sported black uniforms for the blackout game against the ‘Canes that kicked off in front of a record breaking crowd of 55,428 at 8 p.m. at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

4: Crash: It was a tragic Labor Day weekend on the roads. Four people were killed in two crashes, leaving behind loved ones who now must try to go on without them. The first crash happened after midnight Sunday on Taylor Boulevard. The second happened just hours later on Shelbyville Road in Middletown.

5: Arrest: Two men facing murder and attempted murder charges appeared in court Monday morning, but even after their hearings it is still a mystery what case they are connected to. Michael Dunn, 24, and Trey Anderson, 20, faced a judge Monday morning on charges of murder, attempted murder and wanton endangerment.

6: Murder: Both the victim and suspect in a deadly shooting in Pleasure Ridge Park Sunday night have been identified. According to the Jefferson County Coroner's Office, Michael J. Felker, 37, died at University of Louisville Hospital around 11 p.m. on Aug. 31 after he was shot in the 7300 block of Sky Blue Avenue.

7: Crash: A man killed while lying in bed when a pickup truck crashed into a Mt. Eden home has been identified. According to a Shelby County deputy coroner, Kevin Brian Long, 28, was in bed at his girlfriend's home in the 12200 block of Mt. Eden Road late Friday night when the incident happened.

8: Dirt Bowl: A violent act on Wednesday - the killing of a toddler and wounding of her mother outside a home - rattled a neighborhood. They rallied for peace this Labor Day weekend. Several efforts by activists throughout the weekend aimed to convince others to do something to stop the killing. On Sunday, a pick-up game was held at Shawnee Park for a neighborhood in desperate need of a pick-me-up.

9: Rape: A teacher at Bullitt Central High School is charged with third-degree rape after school officials learned of allegations that she had sexual contact with a student. Crystal Chappell, 24, was arrested Saturday and is being held at the Bullitt County Detention Center. Shepherdsville police said they are investigating claims that she had sex with a student.

10: Sinkhole: A 30-foot deep sinkhole that opened under eight Corvettes on display in the Skydome of the National Corvette Museum in February will be completely filled. The decision was announced Saturday morning by the museum's Board of Directors. Although the sinkhole draws visitors, it would be more costly to safely preserve it than to fill it.
