An American Ambassador in Seoul, South Korea was attacked by a man with a knife who is opposed to joint South Korean-U.S. military drills. According to CNN, the U.S. ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, was cut on his face and arms and North Korea quickly responded to the stabbing saying it was a “knife attack of justice,” and that it reflected “anti-U.S. sentiment” in South Korea. Lippert will remain hospitalized for up to four days after undergoing three hours of surgery.

Jodi Arias will spend life in prison after having a second hung jury. According to USA Today, Arias will not face the death penalty because the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander. Court Judge Sherry Stephens will decide in April whether Arias will be sentenced to life, or life with the possibility of release after 25 years. Arias was found guilty of first degree murder in May 2013 and the jury found the murder as eligible for the death penalty. This was the second jury in her case that could not make a unanimous decision on whether or not she face the death penalty.

KXAN News is showing reports of multiple accidents featuring cars crossing bridges who have been sliding and causing minor traffic delays. Texas Department of Transportation spokesman, Mark Cross, says crews are working two 12 hour shifts to ensure all day coverage for driver safety on roads. These crews are monitoring areas prone to ice and responding to reports from neighborhoods regarding the roads. Cross also says he and his crews will be driving on the roads and being proactive about treating icy spots.

We were able to talk to Trey Hatt from the City of San Marcos about what the decision process is like to delay business operations at the city. Hatt says that the Emergency Management personnel primarily Ken Bell, our city fire marshal monitors the weather very closely with other governmental agencies in the area as weather reports come in and make decisions based on predicted conditions. There is no normal timeframe for when this occurs. However they are aware of forecasts a couple days in advance to start having conversations about possible closures. For example, the city got an email last night at around 9:30 saying to be careful during their commute and that the city would remain open. Hatt also wants to remind San Marcos residents that the Warrant roundup begins on Saturday. As we stated earlier all Hays County Government offices are closed, but SM residents are still able to make payments for tickets, fines, or other fees.
