Downtown homeless to leave park, Monsoon look ahead

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Here's what we're working on at Tucson News Now...


We are tracking developments downtown as the homeless have been told again that they cannot camp at the park.  The issue, blankets and gear in walkways and people remaining in the park after it closes at sundown.  Today at sunset is the deadline for them to clear.  Craig Reck will have the latest on that.


We had two missing persons cases overnight.  The good news is everyone is ok, and we will tell you about the fast actions of the community and law enforcement to locate these people and bring them back to their families safe.


We're preparing for the monsoon kickoff tomorrow.  Dan Bronis will have your forecast, and if you want to learn more about the dangers of monsoon, you can watch our special Monsoon 2015:  Your First Alert to Safety here.


See you starting at 5:30 tonight on KOLD News 13!
