6:01 am
of the region, on storm scan3, we did have lil rounds of some pretty decent rainfall across the lehigh valley, but, that is starting to obviously not only fizzle off to the west, but migrate out to the east. so things are looking pretty quiet at this . little hazy granted specially near the shore towns, but now that the sun's up, it will do its part to help scour out haze, and the temperatures will eventually start rebounding, currently at very mild 70 in philly, so not going to be very difficult for us to rebound to 90, later on today, we actually ended up reaking out 90 degrees officially at philadelphia international airport yesterday. but it is a hot, steamy, overall sunny day. notice, that the shore, we kept it dry. looks to me at this . like only going to see any showers or thunderstorms even still scat nerd nature fire up from the city on northwest. so, that is generally where you will find the activity here today. it is still hot. it is still turning humid, however. and with time, today, again, it is going to be one of those days that you got to listen to your body. so the air quality still less than ideal, pollen levels remain moderate.
6:02 am
at this . got to start talking about uv and heat index values, that uv index gets awfully high this time of year, so please, all common sense, but i'm going to just be the mom here and say make sure you latter on the sun block, 30 or greater, please, and drinking plenty of fluids, water most preferably going outside for all of the activities today. >> that's right, keep yourself protected, kids protected and keep those puppies protected. i saw one in the car the other day, ya, it is tough it, gets so hot, like your car becomes this little inferno. so just be mindful of that for all of that you have the pets, i know, i certainly will, as well. schuylkill at spring garden what you are looking at moving in the eastbound direction, looking good, both directions, right now, like heating up little bit. we will see that typically on a friday, specially, as brooke had pointed out when we have holiday weekend, certainly going to be little crazy out, there and we've been seeing that all morning long. right now looking good around spring garden just starting to heat up. we will see it do so, probably pocket of it heating up at certain . that it wouldn't or
6:03 am
maybe little later, a loft you maybe even taking the day off. ben franklin bridge, looking good, moving in the westbound direction, toward center city, ben franklin bridge actually looking real nice right now. take a look at this shot. so much greenery. this just looks beautiful in bucks county. route one, headlights moving in the northbound direction near business route one looking really nice around that area in bucks county. where we had truck fire still out there, pa turnpike before delaware valley or exit 358. all lanes blocked. they are diverting traffic at delaware valley exit right now, this is more of updated shot. so you can see all of the vehicles being diverted right now, also, some construction on the commodore barry bridge, both directions, left lane block, nicole, over to you. >> meisha, thanks. hit-and-run leaves a church ban driver dead this morning. >> now the search on for the car and the driver who hit him.

6:04 am
night a dark car struck a 57 year old man, and just never stopped. within a few hours, he was dead, and now police are searching for the driver responsible. this all happened in the area of front and diamond streets in kensington last night. police say the victim had just dropped off church members for a meeting. he parked his dodge van on front street and was either entering or exiting from the driver side door when he was struck by a dark green or black mid-size car going northbound on front. police tell us the victim was dragged some 15 feet, and left unconscious, with trauma to his head and face. he later died at temple hospital. the impact we're told bent that van's door back in the opposite direction, bystanders called over police nearby who were patrolling, police have at least 2 witnesses now, and they are also hoping to get their hands on video evidence. >> fortunately, at the location where the accident occurred, there were several businesses with exterior surveillance cameras.
6:05 am
so, accident investigation officers are trying to locate the owners of these businesses in order to view these cameras. >> now, police are looking for a dark green or black mid-size car, possibly with two doors, it should have some front end damage, and damage to a right front passenger tire. now, the driver when found will face vehicular homicide charges among others, the victim has not been identified, but we are told he lived in the area of this accident. brooke, nicole, back into you. thanks, justin. and new this morning, a man is sent to the hospital after he was robbed and then shot in the hip on temple university's campus. this happened just before 12 30 this morning the 13 and westmoreland intersection, police say the 45 year old victim's cell phone and wallet were stolen. the victim is in stable condition. detectives hope nearby surveillance cameras will help them catch the suspect. more than dozen bucks county school children had to be treated for heat exposure

6:07 am
private industry can do this just as well with oversight with ts a and save money, and improve customer service. >> airlines are pitching in to help free up tsa screeners. american has contributed 4 million dollars, and delta chipped in five million to hire people to do non-security related work at those checkpoints. that's good because americans are traveling this memorial day more than last year. about 39% more. 89% of people will drive, 2.6 million people will fly. according to the website wallet hub. com, orlando florida is the most popular destination. that's interesting. >> i can see why, right? disney world? all right, well, the surf, the sand, the jersey shore, the unofficial start of summer. >> this guy. he's always have all of the fun.
