I’m Alaina Pauli with KJACK News and these are your top headlines for Tuesday, November 6th. 

First and foremost: Its so important that all of you get out and vote today. Go down to the polls as soon as you can and place those votes.

As states shy away from coal-fired power, a northern Arizona tribe is exploring the purchase of a coal plant on its land. The Navajo Generating Station near the Arizona-Utah border and its feed mine are slated to close at the end of 2019, the victims of cheaper power from natural gas. A potential new owner and operator ended negotiations to take over the plant in September after they couldn't find anyone to buy the power. The Navajo Transitional Energy Company said it's now considering ownership of the plant at the invitation of the tribe.

Interstate 17 in northwest Phoenix reopened Friday morning after being closed for about seven hours because of a crash that the state Department of Public Safety said may have involved vehicles racing on the freeway. Two of three vehicles involved in the crash may have been racing prior to the collision. One of the three vehicles rolled, ejecting the female driver who has life-threatening injuries.

A new UN report says that Earth's protective ozone layer is finally healing from damage caused by aerosol sprays and coolants. The ozone layer had been thinning since the late 1970s. Scientists raised the alarm and ozone-depleting chemicals were phased out worldwide. The upper ozone layer above the Northern Hemisphere should be completely repaired in the 2030s and the gaping Antarctic ozone hole should disappear in the 2060s. If nothing had been done to stop the thinning, the world would have destroyed two-thirds of its ozone layer by 2065.

Now here’s your Flagstaff weather report:

We’re going to have a nice sunny week with Today having a high of 60 with a low of 30 degrees. Tomorrow we’ll have sunny weather with a low of 23 and a high of 64. Then for the 8th it’ll be just a little bit cloudy with a high of 57 and a low of 29 degrees.

Please remember to go out and vote!

Those were your top headlines, and I’m Alaina Pauli with KJACK News.
