nryan@wdbj7.com Tomorrow, President Bush gains a
son-in-law as his daughter Jenna gets
married on the family's ranch near
Crawford to a Virginian.


CHANNEL=C VO-NAT


VO-NAT And the good folks of


Crawford are doing what they can to
help....renting out rooms to wedding
guests.


Her future husband -- Henry Hager
-- turned 30 today. Jenna Bush is 26.


About 200 guests are expected at
the family's 1,600-acre secluded ranch
in Central Texas.


President Bush says he's had
little to do with the wedding -- except
to open his wallet.


Hager is the son of Virginia's
Republican Party chairman, John Hager.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. A storm survey conducted by


the National Weather Service in
Blacksburg confirms tornadoes touched
down in Henry, Franklin and
Pittsylvania Counties last night. This
is the third tornado reported in the
NEWS7 viewing area in less than two
weeks. Last night's tornadoes were
classified as EF1 with winds of 86 to
95mph. Also last night, many hometowns
picked up 1.00-2.00" of rain. Some
locations received 3.00-5.00". Needless
to say, this caused flooding problems.
While most rivers and creeks have
crested, pay attention to swift moving
water through Saturday. Also, watch for
debris on roadways until crews remove
things like limbs, trees and loose
gravel from Thursday's late storms.
REST OF FRIDAY: Expect more clouds than
sun. Temperatures are forecast in the
mid 70s. Westerly breezes around
15-20mph with higher gusts. Some
creeks, streams and rivers may be
moving swiftly due to last night's
heavy rain. FRIDAY NIGHT: Winds will
eventually relax after a breezy
evening. Skies will be mostly cloudy as
an upper level disturbance rotates
toward us from the Ohio River Valley.


This feature could produce scattered
showers, but severe storms will not be
a problem. Low temperatures are
forecast in the low 50s. SATURDAY:
After morning clouds and perhaps a few
light showers, increasing sunshine is
expected. It should turn out to be a
rather nice day with highs near 70 and
a refreshing northwesterly breeze.
After a clear evening, clouds will
return Saturday night with lows around
50. MOTHER'S DAY SUNDAY: Could Sunday
be stormy, again? Right now, we'll
monitor for more rain and storms
beginning Sunday afternoon into Sunday
night. A strong jet stream will be
overhead, which could create more
strong storms. With saturated ground
from recent rains, we'll have to watch
for the potential of flooding. Stay
with SkyTracker7 Weather during the
weekend as we track our next
wet-weather maker. For weather anytime
turn to our webpage at wdbj7.com >>

out of gas and caused a six car pileup
just past the start finish line and the
