[ explosion ] >> reporter: and there it went. and this started out between 2:00 and 2:30 as they got everything ready. this was dynamite that was used. the first high-rise on the las vegas strip and for years was one of the city's more famous casinos. they had 2,075 rooms at one point and it closed down in may of last year after 60 years of posting headliners from liberace to dean martin sitting right

5:06 am
>> reporter: she scored bronze. you're about to see the moment. we may have to take you on that lower third when she reaches down. this is kind of the moment last night in prime time coverage of the olympics. and we're going to show you an instagram post i'm told in my ear a little later. we had it in the 4:30 half-hour. it was pretty much the pete rose moment and allison felix track and field competition and then this in the gym last night with the touching of the beam with simone biles. the 19-year-old already three gold medals in rio attempting to be the first to win five gold medals in a single minute. her teammate lori hernandez not only did she claim silver, i heard a sportscaster saying she's the human emoji because she's so cute. simone biles is going to be in the mix for another gold when it comes to the floor exercise in those finals. you'll hear more from her. you just saw a little taste

5:08 am
olympics right there on our website news that's exactly where this comes from. we're going to check in with chloe and we have numerous stories. on the topic of airports, i can't wait. you're going to see gizmo live on the program. you're also focusing on the tsa screeners. airports handling record crowds this summer so lawmakers would like to improve screeners super stressed when it gets really busy. high turnover rates. what do lawmakers have planned. we have it headed your way. plus a restaurant promoting its business with a clever pun. but not everyone is amused by this one. we're going to show you why some people were actually angry about their new slogan. and a tattoo that can help you. yes. we're talking about a touch of genius. we're not talking about just
5:09 am
there's an actual tattoo that leads to this sort of device control. and you're going to see what we're talking about ahead. and we have live pictures coming out of chicago this morning. the chicago cubs have fired a d.j. that plays tunes during his game. he was a reliever set off the field. he served a 29 game suspension for domestic violence. when he left the field, the d.j. played a
5:10 am
and i know i'm prejudiced because he was my son, but i don't think he had a mean bone in his body. there is not a day that i don't think about david. when i saw donald trump attack another gold star mother, i felt such a sense of outrage. "she was standing there, she had nothing to say..." if donald trump cannot respect a gold star family, then why would anyone in america think he would respect them.
5:12 am
. welcome back. it's 5:12. happening in our community, three suspects accused of a gruesome crime in town will face a local judge. what they're accused of will have you talking. it takes you back to this local fire. you're going to remember the details. remember the victims inside had been zip tied. they also had been stabbed. some of them losing their lives. others barely making it out alive. and the fire quickly consuming
5:13 am
victims threatened the suspect from philadelphia after a drug deal ended up going sideways. this was a bad, bad drug deal that ended up going deadly. the victim thought the suspects owed them $100,000 but postal inspectors intercepted and seized the drugs that had been mailed. those suspects are facing several charges, including kidnapping and murder. 5:13 now. this is what it looks like when you get two rain in a 72 hour period in louisiana. massive flooding. seven people have now been killed from this. 20,000 people have been rescued. and the cleanup now begins. but these waters are still very high in many communities in southern louisiana. people there are saying it's as bad as hurricane sandy when it caused all of that devastation. and people in the gulf coast, the people that have lived there
5:14 am
they're also comparing what happened to catrena. however, this was not a tropical system. it just picked up all of that moisture off the gulf and it kept raining and raining and raining and it just would not stop. at 5:14, we have seen all kinds of different devices to help us out throughout the day and sometimes we wear them. like bracelets or smart watches. they even have led dresses. but this morning, we reveal something new. a group of mit researchers are now looking at metallic temporary tattoos called duo skin and they're not just pretty, although they are pretty as far as that gold color. they kind of look like jewelry. but they control your smart devices. users can use them as a touch pad to control what's happening on their screens. isn't this wild. for example, you can change songs on your smart phone by tapping that tattoo. some of the tattoos can also sense body temperature and moods.
5:15 am
these are not permanent. could you imagine. if they were, you'd have to get a new tattoo every six months? [ laughing ] . >> anchor: i could see doing something. i'm not a tat guy. but one of the smart tats at some point. we're looking good at the spaghetti bowl. we'll look at the travel times running in the green. no delays on the freeways and an outside camera view confirms that we have a great start to your tuesday morning commute, except for one thing. there is an accident out in suer the traffic circle, watch out for that one. that seems to be the only one for now. so let's find out what's up with the weather and check in with kelly. thanks, tom. a lot of sunshine. very similar conditions to what we saw yesterday. yesterday this is a time lapse look. a lot of blue sky. a little bit of a breeze in the afternoon. you can see the trees swaying there a bit. as the sun goes down, still clear. yesterday's high ended up being 108 at the airport.
5:16 am
but temperatures to start the day at least a little bit cooler for us. yesterday morning we were in the 90s in some locations at this time. las vegas right now 76. 81 spring valley. summer land 79. henderson a little warmer. we're getting around 86 degrees right now. we are expecting pretty quiet conditions around the area. i think there's a few clouds, though, as you look off to the east. some rain showers in parts of northeastern arizona right now. but dry conditions for us today. the high similar to yesterday. 108. winds will be a l over night tonight, clear skies. 82 for the low. and our seven day forecast more sunshine tomorrow. but notice the temperature trends are going down. 106 tomorrow. but 102 by friday. and even 101 on sunday. from one meteorologist to another, 5:16. chloe beardsley has turned into a reporter in rio for us this morning. she joins us live yet again. and, chloe, if you want to see
5:17 am
rose moment or simone biles when she had that moment where everyone was gasping and she touched the balance beam, you're going to have to pay through the nose to get a seat inside. >> reporter: absolutely. and if you go to the front where they're selling the tickets at the booth, they're pretty much sold out for all of those big games that people want to go to. but if you're lucky, you can go right in frond of the venues. and some people are selling their tickets that they bought a lot earlier. we talked to one local las vegas couple who actually bit the advance, including to see gymnastics and simone biles. we even got to speak with one of the gym nists they saw on the floor. >> reporter: sharon and dave are no strangers to traveling. they came here to fulfill more items on their bucket list. >> it's been absolutely amazing. >> reporter: buying tickets ahead of time paid off. they paid around 30 tickets up
5:18 am
favorite athletes. >> many different swimming starts that actually merged. we weren't even ready for it. >> reporter: simone biles, we love simone. we got to see jacob dalton. >> reporter: jacob spoke to us briefly after his competition. the u.s. men's gymnastic struggled on the floor exercise. jake finished in fifth place in the men's team all around and sixth in the men's floor exercise. >> you compete with these guys and you stick everything and it's hard t on my feet. >> reporter: he told me he's thankful for his fans at home who have continued to cheer him on through his second olympics in rio. >> even after a little disappointing finish, they're always supportive. social media thanking us and supporting us and always have our back. there's never anything negative. >> reporter: home town hero. what could be better than that. whether it's win or lose, just watching it is all worth the experience. >> definitely worth it to be in
5:19 am
win. >> i would like to thank my wife from the bottom of my heart to talking me into coming here. it was absolutely worth the bucket list. >> reporter: and based on their experience, karen and dave say they do plan on attending the next round of olympic games. they're excited for them. as far as the tickets go, some of the high priority games that people are trying to get into are basketball. but people outside the venues are selling those tickets for not only hundreds of dollars more than the original price but even up to a few thousand. i'll send it back to you kim and >> anchor: thank you. and when the basketball team gets a win with only three points, those tickets probably going to get pricier. thank you for featuring jake up in the northern part of our state. we've been focusing on cody action tomorrow in the quarterfinals. meanwhile, the long lines at the tsa checkpoints at airports may be because of bad morale and
5:20 am
high turnover among some of the tsa agents. joining us live to talk about that right now fromt????? the f nasdaq, jane king. how are you doing this morning? . >> hi. dana doing well this morning. they ease the long lines at the airport security trying to figure out. you have the starting paper tsa agent about 3500 a year. they're on the front lines in the battle against terrorism. dealing with a lot of grumpy people. u.s. airports handlin r crowds. they're trying to improve morale and reduce the unusually high turnover. lawmakers and aviation experts have offered two solutions. one is either give airport screeners a raise and improve their rights or turn more airport security over to private security firms. >> i would go with solution one. give them a raise. $34,000 a year. but you give more money, morale goes up for sure. and with online shopping on the rise these days, department
5:21 am
your game. [ laughing ]. >> anchor: yes. have you ever tried getting a massage from a computer? i mean, it's just one of the things you can get online. and those are the things that the department stores are focusing on. things that can't be bought online. and they're turning to them to boost sales. so the associated press is kind of focused more on services, restaurants, salons, spas, things like that. very customized shopping experiences. and they hope that that is one way to bring the shoppers back into the department your game. >> anchor: i liked it. >> anchor: i said it all right. >> anchor: yes. >> anchor: jay king doesn't need to step up her game. >> anchor: no, she does not. >> anchor: who needs to speak so proper all of the time? still to come this morning, we take you to a restaurant. and it focuses on pasta. but the focus this morning is dramatically different because of a slogan they have started
