engineer. mark barger reports. >> reporter: a devastating scene in new jersey's hoboken train station just outside of new york city. a commuter train slammed into the station platform during the morning rush hour. the train is used by hundreds of commuters who traveled back and forth daily from new jersey to new york city. the terminal is one of the busiest in the new york city area. the station suffered major structural damage as emergency crews rushed to the scene to help the injured. >> people were getting out. very injured. i saw a lot of people with gashed heads. >> reporter: early reports indicate the train ran through the bumper stop at the end of the track and finally came to a rest between the station's waiting area and platform. more than 100 people were injured. many critically. >> there are approximately 250 people the train this time of day.

burglary. tomorrow one count of attempted stolen vehicle. >> reporter: what will happen next week is that after he has resolved all of those with officially accepting the guilty plea agreement, from that there will be bail set. the bail he accepted a guilty plea on today. $5,000. looks like the bail for the other case twos thousand dollars. and maybe bail for another one is three grand. so the bail will be probation on the cases by this time next week and will very likely be a free man, one of the subjects of probation or conditions rather. probation will be that he has to wear a tracking device and, of course, not break any laws. he could have gotten 14 years in prison had he con convicted and charge on all cases. craig fiegener, news 3. >> dana: meanwhile a nearly six hour standoff over in a local neighborhood. we first brought you this as

[ cellphone ringing ] it's just another scandal from danny tarkanian. tarkanian
was the corporate lawyer for those with an elaborate scam that tricked hundreds of seniors into donating to fraudulent charities, totaling millions. and when a shady tarkanian deal went bust, he refused to pay back $17 million, why would we ever send danny tarkanian to congress?
politics should never come before basic health care, but that's the choice joe heck keeps making. women like me rely on planned parenthood for checkups
and cancer screenings, but congressman joe heck voted ten times to take away their funding. heck even threatened to shut down the federal government to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. e government... taking away access to lifesaving care... just to score political points. joe heck should be ashamed. women vote is responsible

arm and then forcing her into his car. the man then took her to a cemetery where she was able to escape. prior to the abduction, the woman pushed the silent alarm and that is how police got the emergency call. police arrested the man after a short pursuit and crash. officers add the suspect had been stalking the victim for sometime refusing to take no for an answer after he pursued a relationship. >> progress very often but thank goodness this one had a happy ending. kelly curran, early risers, all all of us, were treated some rain this morning. >> kelly: yeah. we had the windshield wipers going on the way to work. that nice smell of rain in the air. we do have clouds out there. especially over our local mountains where we are seeing a bit of wet weather. this is a live look outside from the inspirada overlook as we look off to the sheep range in
over the las vegas valley a ton of sunshine. current temperatures mid and upper 80s. the lakes at 84. sunrise at 88. aliante 84. let's look at the radar because that's what everyone's main focus is here. we got a lot of showers, even thunderstorms building. these are all pushing northward through arizona into utah and even into colorado. got a pretty good size thunderstorm cell here northeast of phoenix. as we zoom in closer to home the activity is far more spotty and most o so it's firing up over the mountain, pushing its way northeast. most of it very light as you can see. some around the spring mountains here, the sheep mountains. continuing toward the north and east toward caliente. mesquite, st. george, seeing a few spotty showers this morning. still a possibility for an isolated shower or two as we get into the afternoon. we are dry in las vegas. we're not going rule out the possibility for an isolated
today partly sunny skies. isolated shower or two most of this will be in the higher terrains. mount charleston you have a much better chance at seeing rain today. 89 is the expected high in las vegas which is pretty close to normal for this time of year. tonight partly cloudy skies. you will start seeing clouds decreasing. 70 for the overnight low. our 7-day forecast. tomorrow back above normal. 91. mostly sunny skies. it's still 90 for saturday. breezy in with sunday into monday, look at the cooler air it's bringing in. we're talking 73 degrees for the high on monday. that's pretty close to morning lows this morning. lows next week? in the 50s. >> dana: still swimming weather for the next few days. . >> kyndell: get out and enjoy it. >> dana: you see these posts on facebook and twitter. people ticked off with their airline. they're delayed at the airport.
if you go back far enough in my twitter feed. >> dana: i'll bet you have. >> kyndell: i can tell you a study says you are being heard. nbc's phil lebeau has the story. >> reporter: it happens thousands of times every day. travelers rant online about an airline because their flight is delayed or they've had a bad experience. >> i don't think they can listen to us because there's so many people who are flying and complaining at the same time. >> i don't think the airlines are listening to the constant are watching. and often responding to what you put on social media. southwest airlines has a team tracking twitter, facebook and other online sites 24 hours a day. and when customers vent about a problem, southwest reaches out to them. >> the approach is how can we help? wait a minute, we hate to hear that. give us information. let's see what we can do. >> reporter: social media teams help airlines by rebooking
information when a problem pops up. like in july when southwest canceled over 2,000 flights due to a computer outage. and even though every major airline tracks and answers customers online, some do it better than others. for example, southwest answers almost half of the customers who mention the airline on social media. the best among airlines in north america. meanwhile alaska is the fastest. answering social media posts within to convo social which tracks the industry's intersection with millions of 2r568ers. >> -- travelers. >> if you know that you can tweet a company and get a response and have your issue resolved in minutes that's a phenomenal experience. if you can do that you will every single time. >> we see more and more of these posts every day because of the add inventory of facebook and --

u.s. 95 shut down both directions between boulder highway and flamingo after a man was hit by a semi-truck. police say the man was trying to gateway from him and he was in a pursuit because they
believe he was a suspect in a shooting at miracle mile trailer park on boulder highway and the 95 last week. again, we have a crew on the
december last year. 14
americans are killeled in a mass shooting inspired by isis. in the aftermath, congressman joe heck had the chance to ban suspected terrorists from buying guns. heck voted "no." 23 times. individuals on the fbi terror watch list have purchased firearms over 2,000 times. it's not just that joe heck does nothing to stop them. it's that he's voted to let them keep doing it.... 23 times.
don't believe... don't believe... don't believe joe heck's
attacks. catherine cortez masto has always served with integrity. as a federal prosecutor and attorney general... she made sex trafficking a felony crime. she worked with the bush and obama administrations to combat terrorism. as attorney general, she helped reduce crime. that's why she's endorsed by law enforcement across nevada. catherine cortez masto. catherine cortez masto. i trust her to keep us safe. i'm catherine cortez masto, district attorney steve wolfson: as district attorney, i've prosecuted a lot of violent people. our background check laws have stopped over 5,000 dangerous criminals from buying guns here in nevada. but a loophole makes it easy for those same dangerous people to buy guns. they get them at gun shows and online from perfect strangers with no background checks, no questions asked. it's a dangerous loophole. closing it will save lives. let's make it harder for criminals, safer for us.
