Willa Remnants Will Fuel Nor’easter -

 The remnants of Hurricane Willa are soaking Texas and could cause problems for the South into the weekend.

Willa slammed the Pacific coast of Mexico this week as a category three hurricane. A low pressure system from the storm will bring rain and thunderstorms to the South before moving up through the Carolinas tomorrow.

From there it looks like it will fuel a Nor'easter, bringing rain, winds and maybe even snow.

The good news is, there are no Atlantic storms on the radar this week.

South Carolina Deputies Are Fired After Deadly Choice To Drive Through Flood Waters - 

Two Horry County deputies are out of work for a deadly incident following Hurricane Florence.

The sheriff yesterday announced the firings of deputies Stephen Floodand Joshua Bishop for their actions last month on Highway 76. Flood and Bishop were transporting two female mental health patients when their van got stuck in floodwaters, and the patients died. The deputies attempted to get the women out, but after failing too, they waited for help on top of the van.

Investigators say Flood and Bishop drove around road barricades before the van got stuck in rising water from the Pee Dee River.

WORLD SERIES: Red Sox Go Up 2-0

The Boston Red Sox are heading to Los Angeles in the driver's seat of the World Series after beating the Dodgers 4-2 Wednesday at Fenway Park to take a two-games-to-none lead in the series.

In a similar situation to Monday night, Boston once again broke the game open in the middle innings. Tuesday it was in the fifth inning, with two outs, the Sox knocked out Dodger starter Hyun-Jin Ryu [pr: Hin-jin Ree-you] and embarrassed reliever Ryan Madson with the three-run rally.

The Sox loaded up the bases against Ryu, who was replaced by Madson, who walked Steve Pearce to tie the score 2-2. Then he gave up a single to J.D. Martinez that scored two runs. That was enough for the Red Sox.

Boston starter David Price gave up two runs in the fourth, but he later settled down with neither he, nor the Red Sox bullpen allowing the Dodgers to score again.

Game 3 from Dodger Stadium airs Friday at 8:09 p.m. ET on FOX. Rookie Walker Buehler will pitch for the Dodgers while Boston will send Rick Porcello to the mound. (MLB.com)
