Naked Evacuation: St. Augustine Woman Has No Time To Dress

Naked Evacuation: St. Augustine Woman Has No Time To Dress

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Witnesses shooting cell phone video say shockwaves from the BP gas station explosion on SR 16 could be felt a mile away.

Considering Tiffany Edwards lives right across the street from the gas station, her experience was a little more up close and very personal.

"I hadn't been out of the shower 10 minutes, I was still wet," she said. "And that's when I heard a loud kaboom, a big explosion."

So she ran to the door in her towel to see what was going on.

"And a fireman runs by and is yelling, 'Get out of the house.'"

She had no time to grab her purse, or a suitcase.

"We had no time to do anything," she said.

She didn't even have time to throw on a shirt. She says she grabbed a sheet off the floor, piled her kids in the car and took off for a friends house in Deltona.

"All I had when I got there was my sheet," she said laughing, "I drove straight there with my sheet on."

Wool in the Summer? Castillo Rangers Say that's Cool

Wool in the Summer? Castillo Rangers Say that's Cool

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- While tourists adjust their baseball caps and guzzle water, rangers at the Castillo de San Marcos have wool to keep them cool in triple-digit heat.

Park rangers like Jeffrey Edell wear full uniforms, just like the Spanish soldiers who guarded the fort hundreds of years ago.

"Second biggest question I get besides, 'Where's the bathroom?' is, 'Aren't you hot in that?'" Explained Edell, a park ranger for more than eight years.   "And of course, I tell them 'Yes,' or 'I'm kind of cute, but I wouldn't go that far.'"

But the outfits actually keep him cooler than the people wearing shorts in the summer, said Edell.

The uniform is made of several layers of linen and wool.  The fabric pulls sweat away from the skin, which naturally cools the person inside. 

"I'm probably cooler than you are; it's just I'm a little wetter," Edell explained.

Homeless man's arm severed in axe fight

St. Johns County, Fla. -- Investigators with The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office Robbery Homicide Section are investigating an altercation which occurred in a transient camp, located in a wooded area near State Road 207.

The incident began when the suspect, 44-year-old William Woodson entered the camp of another couple, in order to continue an argument with his girlfriend, who was apparently seeking refuge at that location. As the argument appeared to become physical, the victim advised both to leave their camp.

According to the witnesses, Woodson began a fight with the victim and had him on the ground striking him repeatedly. As the victim called out for help, his girlfriend picked up a small axe and struck at Woodson with the back of the axe, hitting him at least once in the head. Woodson was able to take the axe from the victim's girlfriend and struck the victim in the arm and shoulder area, causing a life threatening wound.

Fla. Sued Over Ban of Doctors Asking About Guns

Fla. Sued Over Ban of Doctors Asking About Guns

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence is suing to overturn Florida's new law that bans doctors from asking patients about gun ownership.

The center filed the suit in a Miami federal court on behalf of three doctors and three physicians groups.

"The best medicine is prevention," said Florida Pediatric Society president-elect Mobeen Rathore. "Unfortunately, I have seen too many tragic outcomes of an accidental shooting."

Rathore calls the new law a gag order. His organization along with the Florida Academy of Family Physicians and The Florida College of Physicians are part of the lawsuit against the state.

Opponents of the law are calling it vague, and say the punishment doesn't fit the crime."It could go to the board of medicine. You could essentially lose your license if you violate it," said Chris Nuland, an attorney for physicians.
