Hello from Teresa Jun - Tucson News Now

Hello from Teresa Jun

Hoarding has become a huge problem in some southern Arizona communities. It leads to eyesores in neighborhoods, unsanitary conditions, and in some cases, animal abuse. 

It's become so bad that a special task force has now been created to help people who suffering from hoarding issues. We'll explain what that's all about.

Our Sonu Wasu even spoke with a local woman who is a recovering hoarder. She'll share her story tonight on FOX 11 News at 9:00 p.m.

Also tonight, we're keeping an eye on the ever-changing weather conditions for you. Just when you got used to the thick boots and scarves, it looks like a temperature change is on the way.  Kevin Jeanes will break the rest of the week down for us.
