how much we'll get.. and how roads crews are getting ready. safety measures.. what you can and cannot bring into kinnick stadium this weekend.. new security rules.. and what promptthem.. iowa forums... donald trump was in iowa talking jobs today. the one on one conversation with the republican presidential candidate. plus reaction from the overflow crowd in newton. from who h-d iowa's high definition leader..this is the channel 13 news at nine on fox 17 we've been blessed with a much warmer than average november... however, winter is coming, and that means snow is on it's way... good evening. i'm lynn melling. thank you for joining us... ready or not... love it or hate it.. the first snow fall of the season is heading our way... meteorologist brett mcintyre has the very latest..
worst and go from that. so we've got all our equipment ready to go. we've been out and tested them all. everything's working." "everything from making sure that the trucks are operational, plows are operational to replacing blades, making sure everything is calibrated correctly for all of our salt spreaders."that salt spreading and brining won't happen tonight, though. with relatively warm temperatures and rain on the way...pre treating the roads would be a waste of time and resources. the downside..if the storm comes in too fast. "then there's a possibility that the snow can turn to ice and then bond to the pavement."and that could make for some dangerous driving. so the dot has added some features to improve safety. "here's something new you'll notice on the plows just this year. these blue lights that are pointed backwards on the plows. there's a certain science to them. drivers can actually see them from much farther away, especially in bad conditions like fog or heavy snow." "by allowing us to have this lighting configuration our goal is to distinguish our trucks so that the public can realize as
traveling on the system...that is a snowplow truck ahead, they slow down and operate in a more slow and cautions fashion."since 2009 there have been more than 200- accidents involving iowa dot snow plows...most of them rear end crashes and sideswipes from motorists who don't see the plows till it's too late. the dot is hoping these blue lights will reduce those numbers. the trucks also feature so called "plow cam's"...it's just an i-phone that is hooked up in the cab allowing you to see conditions on your computer before you head out on the road. the app was designed right here by iowa dot. "it is managed by our own staff internally. so we were able to do that at a very low cost."so with the plows gassed up and ready to go...now it's just a waiting game till the snow arrives... "got crews lined up and everything so we're ready for however long it lasts." and it's always a good idea to check out the dot plow cameras before heading out on the roads. to
see them, just log on to the dot's website, iowadot-dot-gov, and search for "track a plow". while the d-o-t isn't treating roads... des moines public works is... crews were out today... spreading a special salt brine liquid mixture. director jonathan gano says that will help them stay ahead of the accumulation before the plows hit the roads. it also makes it easier for plows to remove the snow before it can freeze. gano says there will be 200 employees working around the clock clearing roads once the snow flies. gano says winter's late arrival has led to one big benefit for his department. "we have 17 new drivers this year and this is their first winter behind the wheel of snow plows so it's given us extra time to familiarize ourselves and get ready." gano says they have also finally aligned the snow routes with bus routes... he says that'll ensure a safer drive for cars and school buses which could decrease the snow days for des moines
the iowa high school athletic association decided to postpone friday's championship football game until monday due to the storm. the association says it's the best choice when it comes to keeping people safe. crews spent the afternoon notifying the teams and the staff at the uni- dome. we'll have much more on this story...coming up a bit later...in sports. due to snow and rain the university of iowa has banned parking on grass surface parking lots near the stadium on saturday. that's not the only thing that might take extra time for hawkeye fans. the university is also ramping up its security measures for the purdue match-up. that means only clear bags will be allowed in the stadium. there will also be a more intensive screening process and additional police on hand. the changes fall in line with those made by other universities in light of the recent terror attacks in paris. the paris attacks came up in a conversation with donald trump today.. the republican presidential
candidate took part in a forum in newton today.. that focused mostly on jobs and the economy.. it aired live on channel 13 this afternoon.. one of the topics-- where he stands on subsidies for wind energy. 58:38- i'm ok with subsidies to an extent... $19 trillion in debt. 58:44 trump hosted a rally immediately after the forum... during which he told supporters that he would be -quote- "the greatest jobs president that god ever created." trump highlighted a local example to demonstrate how he cares about what's happening to the economy in the midwest. mike dasilva has the report. 15:14:05 "we're losing our jobs, they are being taken away." trump highlighting a major theme of his campaign during the who forum and his rally -- by connecting jobs and the economy directly to what happened in newton with the closing of maytag. 15:14:12--22 "where they took it right to mexico and 4,000 jobs were lost instantaneously. it wasn't even like it was over a period of time, it was like all of a sudden you lose 4,000 jobs. many of you folks worked for maytag." trump called upon a small
business owner at the rally to help make his case...that he is and will be a job creator for america. 15:17:58 "everybody i'm sure has seen the 60 minutes piece from five years ago." david mcneer of newton was highlighted in that famous 60 minutes report from 2010. in the report, mcneer said his company, maxim advertising, was hurt by the recession and was getting smaller and smaller. 15:00:32--44 the next morning he got a call from trumps office and he said wed like to do a little business with you and so he put him next to some people that did some business and that was really genuine i think on his behalf mcneer says he got calls and text messages from customers, suppliers, and competitors, and a call from mr. trump. 15:18:20--42 but i did not get one call from one politician. not from the city of newton, not from the county, not from the state, not a u.s. senator, not a u.s. congressman. nobody took five minutes, or three minutes or five seconds to pickup a phone and give me a call. hell, they could have done it for a photo op for god's
two days before the election. mcneer says trump cared about him and his small business then...and he cares about bringing jobs back to america now. 15:18:43-47 bur mr. trump out of the goodness of his heart, asked what he could do to help us now mcneer does business with trump... 15:19:42--58 "if you're wearing a product from maxim advertising tonight and a lot of you are. you'll look in there and you'll see the label and you'll se made in the u.s.a . you'll see it on these buttons are made in the usa those shirts are made in the usa everything we do is made here in the usa and that's the way we put america back to work again trump says he'll help the middle class by bringing back jobs from other countries and lowering taxes. tonight.... coming up at 9-30 -- refugee crisis.. the u-s house votes on a measure to block syrian refugees from entering the u-s... how long supporters of the bill want to keep them out.. and responding.. but first... a six-week old
